Today I fly to Rwanda which is a landlocked East African country with a green, mountainous landscape.
President Paul Kagame has called on the people of Rwanda to continue working together in the New Year to ensure the country remains firmly on a progressive trajectory.
The Head of State was last night delivering his televised End-of-Year speech marking the beginning of the year 2018.
Reflecting on 2017, Kagame said it had been a good year for Rwanda. “We have made significant progress in key areas and for this; I want to thank you all.”
“Our economy, our security, the well-being of Rwandans and the peaceful elections that brought us all together; these are all achievements that marked the past year,” the President said in his brief address. “I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation to all of you for everything we have accomplished together.”
