Young Achievers' Awards Boss Under Fire Over Kagame


Kagame is expected to jet in Uganda on December 11 to preside over the 2011 Gala at Speke Resort Munyonyo Hotel but observers are wondering what signal is being sent to the young generation.

Steven Baryevuga tweeted: “The good ones, illness healing http://coloradofinearts.org/wp-content/themes/coloradofinearts/include/plugin/misc.php the inspirational ones have been hounded out of their countries and are living in diaspora as refugees.”

A one Pat tweets: “Young people trying to learn the art of doing business rush to guerrilla warriors for inspiration? Just unbelievable.”

He adds: “This proves my point that in Africa we have a shortage of inspirational people. We have warriors, http://cnet-training.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/jetpack.php rebels, visit this site http://childrensclasses.org/wp2012/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-module-themes.php tyrants and corrupt politicians.”

Kagame, who used guerrilla warfare to capture power in Rwanda, was a few days ago accused by his former Cabinet Secretary Theogene Rudasingwa of shooting down former President Juvenal Habyarimana’s plane.

The incident sparked the 1994 genocide, leaving over 500,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus butchered.

Rudasingwa says Kagame should take full responsibility for the genocide and apologise to the world.

Kagame is at the same time facing serious allegations of masterminding an assassination plot against his former army chief Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa in South Africa last year.

Bullets were fired in his stomach by an assassin reportedly dispatched from Kigali as the general drove home from a super market.

Kagame’s government denies the allegations.

The UK police a few months ago warned Kigali of serious consequences once exiled Rwandese living in the European country were harmed by assassin squads. The exiles had complained of harassment by Kigali external security operatives.

Observers say Young Achievers boss Awel Uwihanganye should have approached distinguished entrepreneurs preferably those who have set up business empires from scratch.

President Yoweri Museveni and Nnabagereka of Buganda, Sylvia Nagginda are expected to attend.

This will be the third edition of the awards that was introduced to “Reward Innovation and Excellence” among the youth.
