Detractors should not distract you

Editor, from what I have read about the recent parliamentary elections in Rwanda it is clear that Rwandans have just held a smooth and peaceful poll. The proportional representation system of voting seems to be working for the country. I never heard of any serious cases of violations or incidents, which are often synonymous with elections elsewhere.

Editor,

From what I have read about the recent parliamentary elections in Rwanda it is clear that Rwandans have just held a smooth and peaceful poll. The proportional representation system of voting seems to be working for the country. I never heard of any serious cases of violations or incidents, which are often synonymous with elections elsewhere.

Yet, a so-called scholar by the name of Filip Reyntjens from Belgium, a country that failed install a head of state for over two years due to its internal intolerable differences, boorishly predicted, on Al Jazeera, that fraud would mar Rwanda’s legislative elections.

I am not Rwandan but I am encouraging the country to give deaf ears to whoever tries to pull it down and focus on building a bright future through the commendable course it has already taken.
