While addressing students at Mercer University, page http://chuckatuckhistory.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-get-post-v1-1-endpoint.php Stetson School of Business in Antlanta, order http://compraresenzaricettaonline.com/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/aioseop_feature_manager.php USA, diagnosis Rwanda’s President, Paul Kagame yesterday spoke on Rwanda’s vision and the business opportunities that exist today.

“Vision 2020 is premised on investing in our people and developing our people. That is why we are focused on measuring how fast and how far we are moving in the direction we want.”

Attributing Rwanda’s vision to lessons from the past, President Kagame emphasized the importance of citizen participation in shaping Rwanda’s future:

“We were very conscious of where we were coming from and what needed to be changed: our mindset. We fought against genocide and when we took responsibility, we made sure that we did everything possible to make every Rwandan feel that they have a stake in what is happening in the country. People used to wait for people to do the work for them. We said no, it has to start with us. The others can help but only if you are doing something”

President Kagame also addressed Rwanda’s efforts towards self-reliance:

‘We may not want aid but we need it. But the best way to use it is in a way that we need less of it.”

The event was attended by over 100 MBA student and faculty and served to launch the University’s latest Mercer on Mission service initiative, which will take place in Rwanda.

The initiative will be a three-week study abroad and service-learning led by Dr. Etienne Musonera, associate professor of marketing and Dr. Gerry Mills, graduate program director and lecturer in health management. During the three weeks, students will get involved with AVEGA-Agahozo (the Association of the Genocide Widows of Rwanda) and Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village.
Award winning Jamaican reggae artist, recipe http://dejanmilutinovic.com/wp-includes/class-wp-user-meta-session-tokens.php Orville Richard Burrell alias Shaggy who was in town to perform at last night’s Club MegaFest at Nelson Mandela Stadium, sildenafil Namboole urged Ugandans to love their country and music from their country instead of only being fixated to the international bandwagon.

Shaggy, who had just appeared on stage at about fifteen minutes to midnight, asked his DJ, DJ Cue to give him a mix down in order to warm up the crowd for the live band for which they had waited all night long.

However, DJ Cue played ‘Empire State of Mind / New York’ by Alicia Keys and Jay z which threw the enormous crowd into the wildest of cheers as they danced to the song.

However Shaggy was not amused with the way the crowd was in love with this foreign song more than they had been with Bebe Cool who had just left the Stage.

He (Shaggy) immediately directed DJ Cue to cut the song and started counseling the crowd, “Ugandans should love Ugandan music, Just like Americans love American music and Jamaicans also love Jamaican music, this is Namboole and not New York,” he counseled.

The singer then added, “’Home first’ should be the rule,” before he then directed DJ Cue to play a Ugandan song.

Cue instantly played ‘Go down Low’ by Team No Sleep’s Sheba and Pallaso to which the crowd responded to even more eagerly which charmed Shaggy who started dancing to it and even singing along.

After the song, Shaggy was ready to unleash the package of the day with his live band. Keep hooked to ChimpReports for more details on the exhilarating experience at Namboole.
