“These responsibilities are not new to us. We have experienced a lot to help us not repeat our past mistakes. Instead, we need to devise new, innovative ways that are adept to the times we are in and deliver on our promises.,” Kagame said.
The Head of State added that the weight for all of that should be understandable to all, urging them to use their experience to serve even better in their new capacities.
