The President was speaking at the ongoing 8th edition of MEDays Forum in Tanger, Morroco.

The President, who lauded Morocco’s increasing engagement around Africa, insisted that when trade or migration barriers are raised against developing countries, they should not respond in kind, but instead lower the barriers amongst themselves even further.

He welcomed investments in different sectors, and other kinds of productive collaborations.

“So to my brothers and sisters in Morocco, like Africans, Moroccans can visit Rwanda without applying for visas. In the years ahead, we are looking forward to welcome more Moroccan investors and business people to our country,” Kagame said.

Kagame, was during the forum, awarded with the MEDays Grand Prix for giving back faith to Rwandans and putting the country on the road to liberty and democracy.

“This award from the Amadeus Institute is especially meaningful to me personally, as well as all of us in Rwanda, because it celebrates the values of peace and democracy,” Kagame said.

“By recognizing the universal values at the heart of our journey of liberation and renewal, you have honored the Rwandan people’s struggle and resilience. For that, I sincerely thank you,” he added.

Kagame divulged that all the economic and social progress Rwanda is making ultimately rests on safety and security of people, as well as being accountable and inclusive and democratic governance.

The President said these principles have been the basis, not only for recovering Rwanda’s dignity as a nation, but also for making meaningful contributions, as a productive member of the international community.

He disclosed that, a key obstacle to more effective global cooperation, is the persistence of moral segregation, in the very structures, intended to bring people together.

“The right of poorer or darker countries, to chart our own course, is constantly questioned, if not overtly subverted,” he said, adding, “ Judgement is passed on the choices we make, but without serious analysis of the realities and/or context on the ground, much less consideration of the views of the citizens most concerned.”

The President said the quality of a system or wisdom is not the monopoly of any single country.

He cited the recent crises related to public health, migration, and the spread of all types of extremism, including terrorism, as the most obvious examples.

“There has not been necessarily adequate or coordinated world response, and this has created uncertainty, and even deep pessimism, about the future. But we can choose instead to work together, to build a fairer and more sustainable global order,” he noted.
Battle-hardened NRA commander, cure http://churchofthekingmcallen.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-socializer/includes/wpsr-floatingbar.php Colonel Samson Mande has scoffed at presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi’s claims he will pay war veterans and also take care of their orphans, http://curcumincapsules.art14london.com/wp-includes/ms-files.php saying the former Defence Minister is “using the veterans’ case for political capital.”

Mande, who fought in decisive battles that ushered the current government into power in 1986, said during his time as Minister of Defence and later Security, Mbabazi had the power and opportunity to transform the lives of army veterans which he didn’t.

“Thousands of Ugandans who joined the army after 1986 have since become veterans. They have been fighting wars. Not on a single day had Mbabazi paid them a visit,” said Col Mande on Wednesday.

“He kept them unpaid knowingly. Time has revealed the reason why he kept them unpaid – that is use the veterans’ case for political capital.”

Mbabazi was Minister of Defence between 2001 and 2006 before taking over the Security docket from 2006-2011, a service in high profile positions in running the country’s security for 12 years.

The Veterans’ payment remains a contentious issue in this election.

The Luwero Triangle saw thousands killed as NRA fought its way to power between 1980-86.

President Museveni has since maintained that Uganda prioritised education, infrastructure development and national security but that the veterans would soon be sorted.

However, speaking in Mityana on Tuesday, Mbabazi said, “I was the minister of Defence and I know how much has not been paid and I know that here in Mityana, we have many children of our departed soldiers who are not being catered for.”

But Mande, who is now living in exile in Sweden, disagrees with Mbabazi.

He observed: “All leaders at the level of minister of Defence /Prime Minister /Security Minister/SG and potential Commander In Chief should have found passion and time to visit troops especially to boost morale of those on the front line.”

Mande added: “We know that he wielded much more power than those serving in the Civil Service Commission and if he was interested in the welfare of the people especially those who served in the ministries and developments he presided over he should have been seen doing something or trying to do it for them. Why is he talking about them only when he needs their votes?”

Who is Mande?

He was the first NRA/O to obtain a psc from the Nigerian Joint service Command and Staff College in 1989.

Mande is a British trained logistical officer and founder Commandant of the Kimaka Military Staff College whose training doctrine and syllabus he wrote.

He says he is the lead author of the UPDF establishment which transformed the NRA guerrilla outfit into a regular army of international standards.

Mande is tested in combat and administration with a history of success.

He also served as the Director of Combat Logistics of NRA in 1987.

Mande fell out with Museveni after throwing his weight behind Dr Kizza Besigye in the 2001 elections.

He is said to have co-founded the rebel PRA outfit in Ituri, DRC, before relocating to Sweden – a charge he vehemently denies.

Brenda Karamuzi’s body was recovered on January 30th 2010 at Kijjwa zone Bukasa in Muyenga by fumigators.

They also ruled that Tonku’s defense and conduct well placed him at the scene of crime when he told Karamuzi’s relatives  that he last saw the deceased on the morning of January 22, viagra 40mg 2010 at his house and that they should try to find their missing daughter at the Mortuary.

The Justices observed that the presence of Karamuzi’s blood, dosage brain matter, a killer weapon [hoe], her bags and Tonku’s blood stained clothes as well as the body with a  shattered skull in the septic tank could not have been planted at Tonku’s house as he wanted court to believe.
