One on One with Peter Clottey

Robert Higaro of Rwanda


THE RWANDAN GOVERNMENT SAYS ITS CITIZENS WANT LONG-SERVING PRESIDENT PAUL KAGAME TO SERVE ANOTHER TERM. MR. KAGAME CAME TO POWER IN 1994, FOLLOWING A GENOCIDE THAT KILLED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF ETHNIC TUTSI AND POLITICALLY MODERATE HUTUS. SINCE 2003, HE'S BEEN ELECTED TWICE AND LAST DECEMBER, VOTERS WENT TO THE POLLS TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION SO HE COULD RUN AGAIN. HOWEVER, RETIRED MAJOR ROBERT HIGIRO SAYS THE VOTE WAS NOT FREE AND FAIR.
