Last weekend at Club Play, Industrial Area in Kampala, the Rwandan community in Uganda gathered to celebrate Kagame’s landslide victory in the recently concluded presidential elections.
The chief guest was Frank Mugambage, the Rwandan High Commissioner to Uganda, who lauded President Paul Kagame for developing Rwanda in different sectors such as education, health, urbanization as well as tourism; hence transformed the country.
According to The New Vision, Mugambage thanked the youth for the great support they gave to President Kagame.
Mugambage said, “During the 1980s Rwanda had been destroyed and many people internationally thought it wouldn’t be great again. However, currently, the country has been developed to an extent that people from different countries go there to borrow a leaf on the projects and systems,” he told guests.
The Rwandan envoy lauded Rwandans for the overwhelming support they gave to Kagame. Mugambage attributed the developments in Rwanda to accountability, hard work and a high level of transparency exhibited by the leaders.
“I must thank the youth for the great support they gave to our president. Through such enthusiasm, the future is bright for our country.”
Mugambage said there was a referendum in 2015 where a good number of people in and out of Rwanda unanimously voted and agreed that Kagame runs for the third term.
Kagame defeated Frank Habineza, from the Democratic Green Party, and Philippe Mpayimana, an independent candidate.
Donati Kananura, the head of the Rwandan community living in Uganda, praised the cooperation among the Rwandans in Uganda, and also lauded Mugambage for uniting them at a place.
