Kigali, 12 January 2014

President Kagame and First Lady, Jeannette Kagame today joined other Rwandans at the annual National Leaders Prayer Breakfast hosted by the Rwanda Leaders Fellowship. In his address, President Kagame emphasized the importance of every Rwandan to assume full responsibility to transform and share their dignity;

“This is not only a time to thank God but an opportunity for reflection t evaluate our goals; how far we have come and where we are going. Social cohesion is about unity and recognizing our self worth. The first step to praising God is to be proud of our identity and to give value to who we are.”

President Kagame thanked the organizers of the National Leaders’ Prayer Breakfast, reminding them of their role in building a better Rwanda despite the many challenges they have survived:

“Rwanda remains determined to achieve its goals. There is nothing we can do to change our past but it is within our power to build the best nation we can. Our tragic past should serve as a lesson and should be a source of energy to ensure tragedy never happens again. God gives us the strength to build and the ability to protect what our nation has built.”
