IHe added that the economy would have grown even faster had it not been for the consequences of the conflict in the DRC that has been falsely blamed on Rwanda.

“We are not the cause of or contributing factor to this conflict, even those who claim this know it. Those who accuse us are actually the cause of the conflict,” The President observed.

“As you know there is a report based on falsehoods which some of our longtime partners have used as the basis to suspend development aid, in a manner that violates agreed principles of international development partnerships.”

President Kagame, however, emphasised that the decision to suspend aid should not discourage the Rwandan people to move forward but instead inspire them to work hard and reduce dependence on aid.

“Suspension of development assistance may slow down the progress we are making but it should not stop us from doing our best to improve our wellbeing and to lift our citizens out of poverty as we have already done for one million Rwandans in the last five years.”
