I was glad to receive the beaming news of US President George W. Bush’s tour to Africa and in particular to Rwanda on Tuesday.
I request that when he meets our beloved president, he should be brought to understand that Rwanda was the first country to deploy peacekeepers to Darfur as part of the African Union mission in August 2004.
The U.S.-trained Rwandan troops have helped Rwanda continue to be a strong regional voice for greater and stronger international involvement in ending the genocide in Darfur.
While in Kigali, Bush and his wife Laura should also visit the Genocide Memorial sites where the remains of at least 250,000 people have been buried over the past years.
The US President should also participate in dedicating of the new U.S. Embassy in Kacyiru, Kigali.
When this is faithfully done, he will not only have shown compassion but also helped to bring the post war country back to its roots and we will thank him for that.
Bush is also expected to visit Benin, Tanzania, Ghana and Liberia but if I were , I would go to Kenya as well.
