Speaking Friday at the commissioning of 528 RDF cadets at the Rwanda Military Academy, Gako in Bugesera District, Kagame said the soldiers must give their all to defend the nation from enemies.

“The army we are building has to be able to fight any battle that is necessary and fight for peace when necessary,” said Kagame in his commissioning speech upon congratulating the cadets.

“I remind you to uphold the country’s dignity because its value is priceless. The dignity of a country is hard earned, it must be worked for. The dignity of a nation is never given, it is fought for,” he added.

At the event that marked the fifth cadet course held at the Academy, President Kagame warned against betrayal of the nation, because that would be going against the oath taken by the officers.

“Those who betray their country and hide behind those willing to violate their own laws will one day have to face justice. The arm of the law, as they say, is long,” warned the President who led the RPF guerillas in a four-year war that toppled the genocidal regime in 1994.
