Paul Kagame: His Iron Palm to Defend Peace and Humanity in Rwanda
I admire President Paul Kagame of Rwanda.
He is a visionary man and always learns from others. He applies whatever has been done by other people provided he believes that is good for him and public image.
Last week was a Army week by which the Rwanda defense forces provided various humanitarian services to the community in need including medical care, construction work, animal husbandry etc to the people in need. This is another indicator that the Rwandan society has by far gone past conflicts for which it was originally famous for.
President Kagame, being the former senior military officer, he did not remain behind, instead he went in outskirt and involves himself on community work, I saw him and his wife participating actively in digging a trench for the foundation of house! Of course not a fully involvement, but who will sleep on bed while the president himself works?!!
When I saw him joining the forces on community work, it reminded me our former president, the late Mwalimu Nyerere who was a typical Mjamaa.
On Rwanda’s liberation day, I discovered that President Kagame admires very much the work which was done by Nyerere towards building unity in Tanzania, my calculations eventually got an answer.
Yes indeed, take all good ideas from other people and put into practice and ignore all those which they do not have any benefit to you.
