We Kenyans have admitted that we failed Rwanda. Despite what happened in Rwanda during the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, we still failed to learn from Rwanda’s experience. 

Thanks to our president, today, we have decided to open our eyes and learn, learn not just reconciliation but also learn how to build a focused nation. We draw our lessons not from the West but from a sister country, Rwanda.

When President Paul Kagame assumed office, the world wondered how he was going to turn Rwanda into a prosperous nation. Yet, within a short time, he proved to the world that he is able.

A lot was said when we elected President Uhuru Kenyatta into office as well, we believed in him and he has since proved to us that he is serving Kenya with his whole heart.

We have chosen the path of owning up to our mistakes and finding the right solutions and we are now doing it the Rwanda way.

Waweru, Kisumu, Kenya
