Kagame said countries need to come togther to find solutions to their problems. In a very inspirational speech, Kagame appealed to the youth they are required to change societies and close the gap between the old and the young.

Kagame said knowledge and skills are not enough in advancing the development cause in Africa.

“Always embrace right values. The youth should continue the culture of excelling in their societies,” he added.

“If you think you can’t do something you are right. But if you think you can, you are also right. So make the right choices,” Kagame said.

Kagame further noted the youth need a strong sense of character to provide knowledge and skills to the young to help themselves compete globally.

He said the youth should be real agents of the change they seek. Kagame noted he had never seen a brighter future for the continent than today.

Kagame said the economic development of East Africa as a region can attest to this.

Kagame said he found no better place to deliver such a strong message but at the event.

On his part, Museveni hailed Kagame for fighting to liberate both Uganda and Rwanda during the 1980s and early 1990s.

Museveni said his guest’s speech would instigate feelings of self-confidence among the youth of Africa.

Museveni said there were two routes of life. One of seriouness and another of leisure, excitement and decadence. He said the youth must choose the former.

Museveni said youthfulness is not all about physical appearance but ideology.

He appealed to the youth to always work hard to compliment what the elderly failed to achieve.
