There is a lot that Rwanda has achieved under the leadership of President Paul Kagame. Generally, the entire country is now secure, the economy is growing tremendously.
When I retired from the army, the Rwanda Defence Force under the leadership of President Kagame gave me money that I used to buy a piece of land and constructed a house. This is why I have all reasons to vote for him.
