Lessons From Kagames Rule | Democracy Is Not Always A Sure Fix

Source: The Economist

Under President Paul Kagame, who has been in charge since 1994, Rwanda has been transformed. 

The country has notched up growth rates of 8% a year, making it one of the fastest-growing economies in the world (though still one of the poorest). 

A constitutional amendment in 2015 by the ruling party, the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) in theory allows Mr Kagame to remain president until 2034, when he will be 77.

If Kagame's leadership is anything to go by, then democracy is not always the silver bullet to take citizens and countries out of poverty.
