KIGALI, Rwanda’s capital, like the rest of the country, has come a long way in the last two decades or so. It is not one of the regional big boys (or girls) yet, but it is on its way and on a balanced scorecard, it would score quite impressively. It definitely has a glorious future. Naturally, a bi-decade journey has lessons learnt (that can be taught) and lessons to learn.
FOR most countries, the spectacular failure of a rocket launch would mean a return to the drawing board, or at least some introspection aimed at figuring out what went wrong. But that does not appear to be the case in North Korea, where the flubbed launch of its long-range Unha-3 rocket has merely set the stage for a new level of defiance: the detonation of yet another nuclear device, perhaps bigger than in the past.
