Paul Kagame wins Rwandan presidential election with 99% of votes for his third term

1

Rwanda’s incumbent president, Paul Kagame has won a landslide victory in the country’s presidential elections, granting him a third term in office and extending his 17 years in power.

According to the National Electoral Commission’s Executive secretary, Charles Munyaneza, the 59-year-old former guerrilla leader secured 98.66 percent, ‘we expect that even if we get 100 percent of votes, there will not be any change,” he said.

So far, Kagame has won international praise for presiding over a peaceful and rapid economic recovery in the east African nation since the 1994 genocide, when an estimated 800,000 people were killed.

  1. Why did he even run for the third term in office? He would have stepped a side, and to give that chance to his vice-president to campaign for the presidency with their opposition. All african leaders are worst power clique than their colonial masters.
