Kigali, Rwanda | THE INDEPENDENT |  Rwandan President Paul Kagame was sworn in Friday in front of a packed crowd in the national stadium in Kigali, entertained by a military parade and drummers.

“Let’s ensure that those who struggled and perished to build this new Rwanda, and to liberate Africa, did not sacrifice in vain,” the 59-year-old Kagame said.

“All the inspiration we need is right here in Africa,” Kagame said, adding “There is exceptional leadership and ingenuity amongst us, everywhere, only that we have been accustomed not to recognise it as such.”

“Choosing to see the value in each other is a precious gift, which anchors us firmly and confidently in our rightful place in this world.”
