Kagame Dragged In Zimbabwe Presidential Campaigns

Without much connection and almost one thousand miles away, Rwanda has been dragged into the ongoing presidential campaigns down south in Zimbabwe.

A zimbabwean politician aligned to the Movement For Democratic Change-Tsvangirai (MDC-T) faction has come under sharp criticism from potential voters after he claimed that he had a hand in designing Rwanda’s ICT policy.

MDC-T president Nelson Chamisa told his supporters on Saturday that he assisted President Paul Kagame to craft Rwanda’s ICT policy when they met in Geneva, Switzerland.

He claimed that President Kagame was impressed by his [Chamisa] ideas when he was then Minister of Information and Communication Technology during the inclusive Government era.

In his address during the rally Mr Chamisa said President Kagame had been referred to him by former President Mugabe.

“Look what my brother Paul Kagame (Rwandan leader) is doing for his country,” he said.

“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.

Chamisa greeted President Kagame & claims to have helped with Rwanda ICT policy which the country developed before the advent of MDC.

However, through tweeting, President Kagame has distanced himself from Chamisa’s claims.

He further told his supporters that Kagame asked and inquired about him from former president Robert Mugabe and he told him that he 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 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.”
