Elected African Man of the Year by Forbes, Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda, erased the memory of a devastating genocide to make his country one of the continent’s emerging powers.
the famous American business magazine Forbes awarded Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda since 2000, the title of African Man of the Year. Under his leadership, Rwanda is experiencing one of the most spectacular emerging countries in Africa. A continent where the Rwandan President should leave his mark after initiating a major reform of the African Union.
After a genocide that cost the country a million lives in the 1990s, Rwanda caught up with what may have seemed an impassable delay, thanks to significant investments in education, entrepreneurship, health and civic reconstruction. As a result, Rwanda has experienced an uninterrupted economic boom over the past decade or so.
