Ever since I saw the clip of Rwandan President Paul Kagame calling out African leadership, I’ve been a supporter. And I’ve come across some recent news of his that I had to share. The following information comes from the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency.
President Kagame is urging African leaders to tackle the food shortage problem in Africa. Speaking at the Africa Food and Security Leadership Dialogue dinner, he advised that more efforts are needed to eradicate this problem. The following was stated:
“We want a continent that is truly prospering in every sense of the term. And agriculture is undoubtedly the foundation of Africa’s prosperity. That is the larger ambition we must challenge ourselves to achieve. We owe it to the generations that follow us.”
“Africa’s farmers were poor before climate change became a factor. We cannot afford to go on like this and there is no excuse. Improving the enabling environment for agriculture is something we can fully control.”
“This is the reason why the African Continental Free Trade Area is of the very highest importance for our future. The AfCFTA is now in force and trading will commence in July 2020.”
