The president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame has hit back at the U.S for condemning his intention to run for third term.
A referendum recently passed by 98% in Rwanda says Kagame could run for 3rd term and possibly remain in power till 2032. After the U.S State Department said in a statement thatWashington was “deeply disappointed” by his decision to not step down ahead of the 2017 poll, Kagame took to Twitter to hit back:
