With an impressing French message, newly-elected President Paul Kagame has thanked his Burkina Faso counterpart Roch Marc Christian Kabore who recently congratulated him after winning presidential elections to lead the country for an extended third term as Rwanda’s Head of State for the next seven years.
The exchange of messages between thepair took place on Twitter when Kabore took on the social media and wrote a congratulatory message to Kagame in both English and French, just a day after elections took place and saw Kagame end victorious.
“Dear @PaulKagame, Congratulations on getting another term in office. Felicitations pour votrereelectiona la tete du Rwanda,” wrote Kabore.
And Kagame replied to Kabore’s congratulatory tweet message writing, “It is too much appreciated. Merci mon frère @rochkaborepf”
Kagame is not used to boldly provide French speeches nor publicly speak English, but his tweet might have surprised many when they saw it typed in French.
Little did he speak French was in 2014 during the 20th Commemoration of Genocide against the Tutsi, when he said, “Les Faits sont Tetus”, closely translated ‘truth always comes around’
Many more heads of states sent congratulatory messages to Kagameafter his victory. They include Brahim Ghali of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic who wrote, “I am convinced that the people of Rwanda has chosen your Excellency in this election because they strongly believe in your efforts to build strong democracy and inclusive institutions in order to ensure long-term stability and a democratic, prosperous future for all Rwandans’
Kagame, 59, won the race to become president with 98. 63 per cent votes, ahead of independent candidate Philippe Mpayimana and Green Party’s Frank Habineza.
