kigali - Paul Kagame secured his third term as Rwanda president on Friday. Rwandans again massively voted for 59-year-old Kagame, who made an end to the genocide in the East African country with his 1994 RPF militia, and became president for the first time in 2000.
In the previous two elections, he won with more than 90 percent of the votes. Also this time the figures do not lie. 'It is clear that President Paul Kagame, who has 98.66 percent of the vote,' says, 'said the chairman of the electoral council with some sense of understatement. 80 percent of the votes were counted at the time.
The former rebel leader thanks his experts for stability and economic growth in the small country. The president is not undisputed. Critics accuse him of putting an end to opposition, media and freedom of expression.
