“Our security, we have taken it more or less for granted and that was right, that we could make sure that the country was secure to the point that we take it for granted. We will continue to take it for granted, by any means. Here I mean that we are going to raise the cost on the part of anybody who wants to destabilize our security. The cost is going to be very high, whether it’s the means that we are going to put into that to make sure that we have everything it takes to ensure the security and stability of our country and our people and our development. It’s also the cost mainly that those people who want to destabilize our country are going to incur, it’s going to be a very high cost on their part, absolutely. And I mean it, and you know that I mean it.” President Kagame remarks at the Swearing-in of New Government Officials and RDF Leaders | Kigali, 14 November 2019.
