Saïd Business School, University of Oxford: President Kagame is the right choice for the Oxford African Growth Award!

    1. Petition by

      Joyce Lewell

      United Kingdom

President Kagame visionary leadership and his tireless work to transform Rwanda into a dignified nation is nothing short of inspirational for Rwandans and for Africans. In only 19 years since the Genocide Against the Tutsi where one million innocent people were killed because of who they were, Rwanda has become a nation that defies all stereotypes. The evidence of Rwandas progress is undeniable: the economy has grown at a rate of over 8% for the past ten years, over 90% of the population has access to health care, Rwandan children have access to free education and over one million people have been lifted out of poverty in the past five years. The Distinction of Honor for African Growth Award is a recognition of President Kagames belief and hard work for a better Rwanda for all- one that is defined by resilience, unity, dignity and prosperity.

      Because President Kagame is reshaping the Rwandese people psyche self-image into a dignified, highly esteemed and confident people. That makes him stand out among African leaders. Thank God for him.
