After landing a brilliant victory against independent candidate Philippe Mpayimana’s 0.73 per cent and, and Green Party’s Frank Habineza’s 0.47 per cent, with an extended third term now on plate, the newly-elected president Paul Kagame has thanked all those who have had a hand in his successful campaign which handed him a staggering 98.63 per cent votes, the highest vote tally he has ever earned comparing the last two post-Genocide presidential elections.
Kagame, whose results have arguably gone beyond his emotions, thanked his family’s entourage which he insists has boosted his moral courage after they accompanied him while campaigning nationwide during the recent three-week rallies.
“The victory is for all Rwandans. I thank my family, from which I got additional forces to win these elections. I also thank allied political parties’ for their support and influence. It is an indicator that we are on the same margin in the country’s building process,” Kagame said.
He further appreciated the media’s great work to witness Rwanda’s political image and prove doubters wrong about Rwandan democracy which he wants to continue to build on as he is preparing to rule for another seven-year term.
“I thank the media, too, local or international. They have done a great job through which the world has been able to witness what was going on in the country during the elections campaigns till the elections day. The job is going to start again like we were used to doing it. We are going to continue it where we resumed. These are seven years of concentrating on addressing Rwandans’ problem to build a real developed Rwandan citizen”.
As Kagame and his RPF supporters are continuing to enjoy the elections victory, his opponents Mpayimana and Habineza, congratulated their counterpart for his well-deserved victory after a long journey trying their chances for a new experience in their political journey.
According to NEC, 96.4 of registered voters participated in elections.
