From Murders to Mogul, Rwanda the scene of one of the biggest atrocities in mankind’s history. Looking at the Rwanda today its hard to imagin that only two decades ago Rwanda’s government had orchestrated the genocide of more than half a million people the majority were tootsies but many moderate Hutus were also killed in a mere 90 days. In 1994 Kagame and his forces swept aside the government effectively ending slaughter. Resuming control and forming governance Rwanda has since turned its war-torn country into a stable viable safe nation. Rwanda is on track to achieve the UN’s global sustainable development goals by 2030. Through strong leadership, investment in human capital and most significantly reconciliation and forgiveness, President Paul Kagame has transformed Rwanda into one of the world’s fastest growing economies, pathing the way to end poverty for all Rwandan’s by 2030.
In 2000 Paul Kagame became the new Rwandan president and he came to power with two clear goals the first one was to unify the Rwandan people through a reconciliation and forgiveness. after the genocide the second was to pull his country out of poverty. Rwanda is vision 2020 it had 44 clear and accountable goals for instance it said that by the year 2020 one in every three Rwandans must have electricity at home . of those targets was to make Rwanda a gender equality Haven and now the Rwandan Constitution requires that at least 50% of all government positions be held by women. Rwanda is investing the small amounts of money they collect in taxes and are building power stations and roads to promote agricultural productivity and are now trading with their neighbours. To attract investment from the private sector Rwanda’s government has simplified the process to register a business, what was once a few months wait is now complete in just two days, according to recent World Bank statistics Rwanda is ranked the second easiest best place to do business in Africa. 2004 a national doing business taskforce was formed in addition to a zero tolerance corruption task force a result corruption is at an all-time low.
