NYAGATARE - Enthusiastic students of Umutara Polytechnic University on Wednesday took to the streets, urging area residents to give the RPF candidate, Paul Kagame, another 7-year mandate.
Clad in RPF branded T-shirts and placards with words reading; ‘Tora Kagame’ (Vote for Kagame), the students marched from the University grounds towards Nyagatare town main round- about, chanting praise for Kagame and highlighting his past achievements.
“Tuzamutora, Tuzamutora. Tuzatora Kagame ijana ku ijana” (We shall vote for him, we shall vote for Kagame 100%), they chanted amid blaring music.
Mary Mukagasana, one of the students, praised Kagame for his education policies and support.
“He facilitated the establishment of this University that has helped many Rwandans to pursue their educational goals. We shall vote for him to continue providing a solid foundation for the country’s future development,” she said.
On Thursday morning, the students rallied as early as 6.00 am, join over 150,000 other party supporters heading for Rukomo Sector play grounds, where the RPF candidate, Kagame, addressed a huge rally in the afternoon.
“We know how remote and underdeveloped Nyagatare District was. It was not a place one would think of …the district has become a centre for milk production in the country and very soon food production will top,” he said.
Karengera, who rose from being a simple to a modern cattle farmer, also says Kagame deserves another term because of his past achievements.
