I once spoke to someone who had survived the genocide in Rwanda, and she said to me that there was now nobody left on the face of the earth, either friend or relative, who knew who she was. No one who remembered her girlhood and her early mischief and family lore; no sibling or boon companion who could tease her about that first romance; no lover or pal with whom to reminisce. All her birthdays, exam results, illnesses, friendships, kinships—gone.

Overview: Rwanda


President Paul Kagame’s Front Patriotique Rwandais (FPR) (Rwandan Patriotic Front) won its third successive election in September 2013 with a resounding 76 per cent of the vote, although it did drop one seat over the previous election held in 2008. It was unlikely to have been otherwise with Mr Kagame reportedly remarking even as voting was taking place that he had ‘no reason to believe’ that the FPR would achieve anything but a win. Mr Kagame’s term as president does not end until 2017 and it is thought that parliament will attempt to change the constitution to allow him to run for a third seven-year term.
