Kigali, 18 December 2015

President Kagame and First Lady Jeanette Kagame today joined millions of Rwandans in voting during a nationwide referendum exercise on constitutional amendment in Rugunga sector, Nyarugenge District.


Speaking to local, regional and international press after casting his vote, President Kagame stated that the process was about the people of Rwanda expressing their wishes and exercising their rights.

“This is about Rwandans. They hold their future in their hands.”

The referendum is the culmination of countrywide petitions to Parliament to have the Constitution reviewed to lift term limits to allow President Kagame more time to run the country.
