“We must fulfill our responsibility to take part with our own two hands in the development of our nation.”

Kagame was addressing residents of residents of Kinyinya during Rwanda’s 19th Liberation celebrations on Thursday, July 4.

“We have a long way to go but the progress we have achieved to date shows that we can accomplish even more,” said Kagame, adding, “Rwandans old, young, men and women must take ownership of our future.”

He emphasized that achieving a better a future is a duty for each of all Rwandans.

“Rwanda is one where the vulnerable are cared for, where we invest in well being of Rwandans. The times of a divided Rwanda are behind us. Rwandans today value each other and their role in building a prosperous nation,” he added.

President Kagame has won international admiration for turning around the country ravaged by civil wars and genocide that left up to one million people dead.

After the dark days of genocide in 1994, Kagame brought economic and social progress to Rwanda by effectively using the foreign aid thus uplifting millions out of poverty and providing quality education and health services to his people.

Kagame said Rwanda’s history and challenges cannot be addressed as business as usual, saying they “require a new approach.”

“Rwandans cannot settle for being observers of their own life,” he emphasized.

President Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame toured Kami Barracks built from proceeds of peacekeeping troops.

The barracks will also include a section of 150 houses for genocide survivors and people repatriated from high risk zones

The Liberation Day celebrations are being held under the theme “Celebrating Africa’s Renaissance, Working towards Self-reliance”.

This year, liberation encompasses the wider theme of African renaissance and Rwanda’s commitment as Rwandans to do her part by becoming self reliant.

The Minister of Sports and Culture, Protais Mitali on June 28 said Rwanda decided to celebrate this year’s liberation at the village level so that Rwandans own the liberation process.

“We have liberated the country from genocide and ethnic wars but we haven’t liberated ourselves from poverty which needs every citizen to do their part,” said Mitali.
