The cross over from 2018 to 2019 was celebrated in style in Rwanda and characterised by excitement from every corner.

As a tradition, millions of Rwandans choose a place to go to spend the last hour of the year, and embrace a new year with the most excitement.

Some join their families upcountry, others come from village to enjoy the city during festive season.

In Kigali, a lot was on offer. Churches were full to capacity and so were the bars.
