A global love survey conducted by Gallup, a researchOrganisation ranked Rwandans the second-most romantic people in the world. What do Rwandans themselves think? Society Magazine’s Martin Bishop hit the streets to find out.
We ought to be number one in the world. The polls were almost accurate.
Ruzindana Brenda, Artiste
Romantic? That’s funny; Rwandans are anything but romantic, even a blind person can tell.
Nshimyimana Olivier, Boda- boda cyclist
Rwandans, especially the men are very romantic. The polls were 100% correct.
Uwizeyimana Vestine, Fruit vendor
Oh yes! We are very romantic people; you can only find this out if you visit other countries.
Kaka Adam, Sports journalist
Unless if romantic means the same thing as cold. Rwandans are the most unromantic people in this region.
Kubana Olivier, Cab driver
It’s no secret Rwandans are very romantic and beautiful! The whole world knows it but oddly, Rwandans don’t.
Aline Gahongayire, Musician and actress
No way! We are so far from being romantic…maybe a little reserved.
Uwinana Malizie, Pharmacist
Unless the word romantic changed meaning, Rwandans are so unromantic that they can’t even be bothered by the word.
Mugisha Micheal, Truck driver
