Kagame’s Supporters Flood Belgium Streets

treatment geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>Rwandans living in Diaspora and the country’s well wishers took to the streets in Brussels to show solidarity with Kagame whom they praised for transforming Rwanda from blood and ashes of the 1994 genocide to economic prosperity and social transformation.

The diehards carried placards praising Kagame for rebuilding a country whose human resource, public institutions and transport infrastructure had been shattered by the slaying of one million mainly Tutsi in the 1994 genocide.

Having led the RPF fighters to put an end to the genocide, Kagame has steadily turned Rwanda into an African success story.

However, he has been criticized for clamping down on civil liberties, a charge Kigali denies.

The rally in Brussels comes at a time when Rwanda is preparing for 20th Commemoration of the genocide against the Tutsi scheduled for April 7.

Rwanda has for the last few months been holding a series of events across the world to remember the victims of the genocide and honour the nation’s resilience 20 years after the slaughter.
