“Nobody should be there to commend or assist and tell us what to do,” reiterated Kagame as he addressed thousands of residents who gathered in Nyaruguru on Wednesday.


“It is all about mutual assistance.”


Several western countries including Britain, Germany and UK recently suspended aid following a United Nations report that accused Kigali of fomenting the DRC crisis by supporting M23 mutineers.


Rwanda denies the allegations.

“We must not allow anyone to change who we are, where we are trying to go. No one but ourselves can determine our future,” the President confidently stated.


“We must strive for self reliance and find answers within ourselves to achieve our own goals.”


Flanked by high ranking government officials, the President observed: “We must fight against the belief that anyone but ourselves is responsible for our wellbeing. We have our culture and our own identity. We can’t change it, but we can change our way of living.”

He added: “We must not allow anyone to change who we are, where we’re trying to go. No one but us can… it is our responsibility to work for you and ensure respect of the rights of all Rwandans.”


Kagame said solving Rwanda’s problems begins with fighting against the “poverty of the mind.”


“This country is yours to develop. No one can teach us about poverty or hunger when we are the ones living it. Let’s fight against poverty.”


He further said there is no country in the world that does not have problems.


“We must be prepared to solve our own. The question is: are you prepared to continue on the path to remain true to who we are and not be deterred from our goals?” he asked.


Recognized for having led guerillas that toppled the regime of Juvenal Habyarimana and putting an end to the 1994 genocide, Kagame reminded Rwandans: “We know how far we have come and there is no reason to believe that we cannot achieve even more…it is in our hand.”


“The road ahead is still long but looking back at Nyaruguru of the past shows us what we are capable of. What you have achieved was not a gift given to us. It is the result of your hard work and determination.”


Referring to development projects in the District including Kaimu Cooperative, the President said: “What you have achieved here is a testament to what can be done when we work together for a common goal. To move forward demands from us that we never take anything for granted but continue the hard work.”

During an interaction with residents, Kagame expressed shock that only 4 percent have access to electricity. He pledged to ensure extension of power and better infrastructure to turn around the residents’ lives.


Disability not Inability

Kagame also vowed to take action on road contractors who disappeared before paying for services provided by residents.


Earlier, the President visited the Educational Institute for Blind Children in Nyaruguru.


The institute boasts 110 students from all over the country with ages ranging from four to seventeen years old


The educational institute was established by Polish Franciscan sisters and began operating in September 2008


Kagame told the blind: “Your handicap should not be an obstacle to you becoming the best you can be. Continue to study hard, your handicap is not an obstacle to you achieving your goals in life.”


Sister Rafael, the head of the educational institute, said the facility aims at providing an atmosphere where children feel safe and loved.


As usual, the President’s trip was characterized by dramatic scenes, with a resident now asking Kagame to seek a third term in office after 2017.


The Constitution has to be amended to allow Kagame seek another term for the highest political office in the land.


Kaimu Cooperative chairman only identified as Karengera said the people of Nyaruguru want President Kagame to accept the 3rd term for them “to be able to go ahead with their development projects.”


During his recent tour of the Northern Province, Kagame was told to stand again for President.


But he recently told RPF officials during a meeting in Kigali to traverse the country and seek their opinions on the matter.
