RNC welcomes the US statement, on Kagame’s third term beyond 2017.


Rwanda National Congress welcomes the United States statement, released September 4th, 2015 on President Kagame’ s decision to amend the constitution  and permit him to run for a third term beyond 2017. The statement came after Rwanda’s political opposition parties in partnership with Civil Society protests in Brussels on August 14th, and South Africa on September 3rd, 2015   against third term for President Kagame.

Rwanda National Congress takes this opportunity to ask other Rwanda donor countries to do the same and condemn this shameful and unconstitutional act to temper with article 101 of the 2003 Rwanda Constitution which restricts Presidential terms to no more than two terms. The second and last term for President Kagame expires in 2017.

Rwanda National Congress reminds Rwandans, President Kagame, his government and the International Community that it will continue to fight for Rwanda People’s right until Rwandans are free from the dictatorship and oppression.
