“I think the West does some injustice to us. They don’t want us to be ourselves, to develop into partners, into people who also have sense, values, and a culture to live by. It is another version of the West’s economic policies. We can’t process our own coffee here, we’re supposed to send it to other countries to be processed and then buy it back from them.
“Even in politics, we are never meant to graduate from being pupils of democracy or governance. We are always people to be brought up, educated, told what to do, to be consumers of ideas and practices that come from the West. There is no point at which you graduate.”- Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda
