Rwanda - The New Hope of Africa Part 2

Unlike Kenya, Rwanda (under Paul Kagame) is taking a serious stand against corruption.

When I spoke to folks doing business in Rwanda, they say corruption tends to be low-level but structures are in place to deal with serious corruption.

Paul Kagame wants to make Rwanda the Singapore of Africa. Paul is a 'benevolent dictator' on a similar plane as Lee Kuan Yew & he is reportedly as clean as it gets.

Paul - unlike most African rulers (thieves) gave up his ancestral land since he did not need it!!!
In Kenya, jomo kenyatta & dan moi were unabashed kleptocrats!

Interesting blog you've got here.
Kagame did it for me when he tookk those fuel guzzling SUVs from MPs.They were being flagged down on highways and being asked to step out.
