Buoyed by the enthusiasm and massive crowds that marked his campaign rallies in the country’s northwestern region, Wednesday, President Paul Kagame said that Rwandans are strong enough to overcome any threat.
He was speaking at Mudende in Rubavu District during his third and final rally of the day.
“With our unity, with our energy and commitment, we cannot fail to achieve anything we have set out to achieve,” Kagame told a cheerful crowd that surpassed the 200,000 mark.
We cannot lose the battle to develop our country, he said.
“On August 4, make it a point to vote for the RPF candidate, because by doing so you’ll be voting for development, unity and security,” said the RPF-Inkotanyi’s presidential flag-bearer.
He invited every Rwandan to join him and the governing RPF-Inkotanyi and eight other parties that are backing his candidacy in the continued struggle to eradicate poverty and promote prosperity for all.
“Let us start with every individual, every household and district,” he said.
Kagame added: “We want to provide quality education to all of our children, continue to promote universal health care, extend electricity to every household, as well as clean water, among others.”
He said he will continue to create an enabling environment that allows farmers and businesses to thrive.
Official figures indicate that Rubavu is home to 403,662 residents.
Earlier in the day, the incumbent President addressed similarly huge rallies in Nyabihu and Musanze districts.
Tomorrow, Kagame is set to hold rallies in the western districts of Rutsiro and Karongi.
