MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has claimed a hand in turning around of genocide-ravaged Rwanda which is, today, one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
Addressing supporters at a campaign rally in Beitbridge Saturday, Chamisa – who was ICT minister in the former coalition government – said he had helped the Rwandese leader turn his country around.
“Look what my brother Paul Kagame (Rwandan leader) is doing for his country,” he told the cheering supporters
“I helped him on his ICT policy, on how to turn around the country when we met in Geneva, Switzerland and he was happy with my presentation.
“He (Kagame) asked and enquired about me from former president Robert Mugabe and he told him that I belonged to his party Zanu-PF, but I told him (Kagame) there and there that I belong to MDC party led by the late Morgan Tsvangirai.
“So Kagame is doing a wonderful his job for his country because he started his planning from a local level and, because of that, Rwanda has never been the same; it has changed completely.”
