According to a new study on political pluralism and power sharing, commissioned by the Senate and conducted by a group of academics, 86% of the population are comfortable with the idea of power sharing as stipulated in the constitution.
Rwanda’s blend of political co-existence is unique and instead of being demonised by some sections of the international community, it should be an example to the rest of the world, that co-existence nurtures development, reconciliation and harmony among the different peoples of the nation.
The kind of political dispensation in Rwanda is exceptional. The manner in which the contestants acted before, during and after the just concluded presidential elections confirms that it yields harmony and not disunity. And is, as well, proof that the Rwandan people have moved on from divisive politics that characterised post independence and pre-genocide Rwanda.
The country’s blend of politics has worked for her people and it’s they who matter. Therefore, what they decide, ought to be respected. It is absurd that there are people who are more concerned about Rwandan affairs than the Rwandan people themselves.
With the advent of rapid and sustainable development, the country’s strategies have shifted for the better. With the enviable achievements recorded in the last seven years, the Rwandan people, indeed, have a lot to be happy about.
