“We are the eagles that are struggling to fly when we have the wings and everything we need. Having them is something to give us hope. It is simple really to say and to define everything you want. The most difficult thing is having it done, seeing the outcomes and moving in the direction that people have said they want to see happen. You have to believe that your place is up there and not down there. People have to believe that. They have to believe they have in themselves what is required. If we keep working together as Africans I think we can find ourselves making very good progress.” President Kagame remarks at the inaugural Kusi Ideas Festival | Kigali, 8 December 2019.
