Kagame Inauguration

Yesterday, H.E. President Paul KAGAME was inaugurated for a second 7-year term. Another ceremony that I felt lucky to experience….. The inauguration was attended by 16 heads of state from across Africa. THOUSANDS of devoted supporters filled the country’s national stadium and stood on their feet from 7am-1pm (gladly). Rick Warren delivered the opening prayer and showed to all that he is now a Rwandese citizen and even said in Kinyarwanda “I am home.” There was a beautiful performance from traditional dancers–there must have been 400! And although must of the ceremony was in Kinyarwanda I know enough now to know that a presenter and children, who were part of a beautiful presentation thanked Kagame for giving them MUDASOMBWA ( laptops)!
