In a bid to pass the mantle to the next generation of leaders, the ruling party, RPF-Inkotanyi, has resolved to set up a leadership academy that will equip youth with the party's principles, values, norms, discipline, and standards of leadership. The development comes as the party, which liberated the country and stopped the Genocide against the Tutsi 28 years ago, gears up to celebrate its 35th anniversary. The academy, which has been requested for over the years especially by the youth, was agreed upon during a recent Bureau Politique Meeting that brought together over 2,000 senior party delegates from across the country. Part of what was mooted at the two-day meeting, was to ensure the effective delivery of services, stay the course when duty calls, and avoid straying from responsibilities. This resulted in a call to have an RPF Leadership Academy that would among others, ease the transition from the generation that liberated the country to the younger one. Although no details were revealed in the communique issued by the party on its Twitter account, it is believed that if the academy is set up, it will mainly be anchored on the party's political values. The party's political orientation is anchored on its nine-point programme which includes; unity, sovereignty and security, economic growth, democratic leadership, fighting corruption, social welfare, eliminating all causes of refugee status, international relations and fighting genocide and its ideology. In a related development, the party also announced that part of what was discussed during the meeting included, applying unconventional means of working that are aimed at achieving quick, measurable and sustainable results, giving utmost attention to people’s concerns, and refraining from abuse of power. Other resolutions from the Party’s Bureau Politique included promotion of welfare, through working to uproot malnutrition, economic development, effective service delivery, and a communal approach to parenting.
