Kagame to Youth: Exploit Your Potential to Transform Rwanda

President Kagame has called on Rwandans to cultivate self belief because they have immense capabilities to make any advancement they desire.

President Kagame was speaking Sunday during the Rwanda National Leadership Prayer Breakfast, try organized by the Rwanda Leaders Fellowship as a platform to conduct annual prayers for the nation.

“When God created us he did not place us in categories, from superior to inferior. We were all created equal in capabilities,” said Kagame.

“If we wait upon others to do for us what we should do for ourselves, what will our own capabilities do? You cannot stay in a position of being eternally grateful to others without graduating to doing things yourself.”

Turning to the youth, President Kagame pointed out that they should start recognizing their abundant capacities, which he said they should use for their own good and for others.

President Kagame said that although there is the general belief that Rwanda has insufficient natural resources, this is a misconception because the most important form of wealth is people and Rwanda has people with great capacities.

The Head of State further reiterated that there is correlation between working for God and working as leaders of nations on earth.

“For us to be hopeful of better things after life, we must first fulfil our responsibilities in this life. As leaders, God has endowed us with abundant capacities to do good for ourselves and those whom we are supposed to serve,” he said.

President Kagame thanked God for the great achievements registered in 2016, and encouraged leaders to keep the momentum to ensure that Rwanda reaches even great heights in 2017.

The Chairman of the Rwanda Leaders’ Fellowship Pastor Antoine Rutayisire stressed that Rwanda owes development registered over the past few years to God who has availed the country with visionary leaders and bestowed a spirit of nationalism upon its citizens.

The main achievements of 2016 include the inauguration of the Kigali Convention Centre, the hosting of both the African Union Summit and the World Economic Forum on Africa, the launch of medical service delivery drones, the 2016 World Bank Doing Business Report that ranks Rwanda as the second best country to do business in Africa, and sustained national security.

Initiated in 1995, the Rwanda Leaders Fellowship is a prayer meeting that brings together leaders in top positions for fellowship aimed at praying for the national leaders and the nation at large.

It attracts cabinet members, lawmakers, members of the judiciary, police and military top brass, private sector and civil society, including church leaders.
