Kagame surely has at least one positive statistic. Be positive for once. Find it and share it.

By David Himbara

Letter from Rwanda.

Murunganwa aka Himbara, we follow your writings and appreciate your use of numbers to back up what you write. We find, however, that you always look for negative things. Be positive for once and find something favourable to say about our President His Excellency Paul Kagame and his government. As the saying goes, say something positive, and you will see something positive. Best Regards from your homeland.

Response to the letter from Rwanda

Dear compatriots, I appreciate your concerns about what you call my negative writings about Rwanda. I have good news drawn from the latest World Bank data on Gross National Income per capita (GNI). The GNI per capita is the dollar value of a country’s final income in a year divided by its population. As shown in the attached table, Rwanda is now tied with Uganda with a US$930 GNI per capita, and ahead of sixteen Sub-Saharan African countries. Rwanda is inching toward the lower middle-income economies – countries with a GNI per capita between $1,036 and $4,045.

Lastly, I will keep on the look out for positive data and share it with you accordingly.

Stay tuned.
