"They're So mistaken About Wars" President's Remarks Amid Peace Talks In Congo Raises Eyebrows

The process for the restoration of peace and security in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is ongoing and leaders from the East African Community have met to look for solutions to the long civil war that has destroyed the country. Rwandan President Paul Kagame is one of the envoys who are making commendable contributions to the peaceful talks. However, lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has reacted to a powerful statement that Kagame made during the talks. Kagame warned leaders and politicians who are fueling the war in the region.

In his submission he said that some people think that Africans are short stems because of their geographical position. He told them if that is what they think then they are so mistaken. President Kagame said that one thing that makes African leaders strong is that they are not thieves. President Kagame stated that "If you are looking for somebody who knows a thing about war, you come to me, please. I know something about it and I know how bad it is. And by that, I know how you cannot have anything better than peace.” Ahmednasir reacted to laud his firm stand. In his remarks he said, "Listen to this man very carefully. Mimi niko na yeye. Few leaders in Africa can soberly reflect on today's realities and tomorrow's possibilities."
