Kagame Made 34 Foreign Trips In 2018 — He Will Go Down In World History As The Most Traveled Ruler.

By David Himbara

In 2018, Rwanda’s strongman General Paul Kagame traveled to 34 countries on 5 continents — Africa, Europe, Asia, North America, and Latin America. By comparison, President Barack Obama made 52 international trips during his entire presidency of 8 years. It is debatable what the people of Rwanda gain from the Kagame trips. One thing is for sure. Kagame charters the Gulfstream executive jet in which he travels from Crystal Ventures Ltd — a company owned by Kagame’s ruling party, the Rwandan Patriotic From (RPF). Aircharterserviceusa.com indicates that chartering a Gulfstream for 14 hours costs US$14,000. Each time Kagame jets out of Rwanda, Crystal Ventures laughs all the way to the bank. Here are Kagame’s visits for 2018.
