Kagame Held Only 7 Cabinet Meetings But Made 42 Foreign Trips In 2019.

By: Dr David Himbara

General Paul Kagame does not live in Rwanda. He is an absentee dictator who runs Rwanda from foreign capitals. Kagame has held only 7 cabinet meetings versus 42 foreign trips in 2019. This is insane. The closest to Kagame’s lifestyle is Cameroon president Paul Biya who runs his country from a Geneva hotel. Kagame is in fact worse than Biya. The latter at least stays in one place – Switzerland. Kagame is all over the world from Cape Town to Bonn, from Tokyo to Seattle, and all in between.
