Editor,

Reference is made to Prof. Manasseh Nshuti’s latest episode of his series, ‘‘Change with stability and continuity: A political Homework,’’ (The New Times, March 30).

Salutation, Prof. You make us proud by your logic enlightenment of our current political situation. We need more professors who have the same caliber as yours to inform us on the best political formula this country should follow.

My take is: Given the issues we face, we have to amend this document – the constitution – of ours to give our beloved President, Paul Kagame, to continue the performance he is known for (imvugo niyo ngiro).

We need him for at least 14  more years to serve the country. We cannot afford to let go of him now!

But professor, suggest him to run for a third term at least. We need stability and continuity....

I have read and followed different views on the subject, but there is one issue that I feel has not been given due weight by many: Do we also respect that H.E. President Paul Kagame has the right to retire after all he has done for our country?

Through his visionary and exemplary leadership, a lot has been achieved but please respect his humble request to the RPF cadres because he definitely had a reason when he challenged them to find answers to the  now famous political homework. He cannot accept to see the great achievements registered during his leadership torn into pieces but respect his single request for the “change with continuity and stability”.

I am sure he is ready to continue his contribution in another capacity.
