Editor,

This is with reference to Prof. Mannaseh Nshuti’s commentary, “Change with Stability and Continuity: A Political Home Work (Part III) (The New Times, March 1).

If Kenya had a fair, firm and corruption free leader like His Excellency President Kagame of Rwanda, Kenya would have achieved its potential to be a true business hub in Africa. The man oozes bags of charisma yet so humble and at the same time not out of touch with the common mwanainchi (citizen).

I remember seeing a French documentary (translated into English) where he was being quizzed for two and a half hours by a group of ordinary secondary school girls and boys. They gave him a proper grilling, that left a mark on me.

I love you your Excellency, you have been a Godsend to your country, Rwanda. But as others have said before, do not cling to power for too long, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
