Chairman of FPR Inkotanyi, Paul Kagame, continued his presidential campaign in the Eastern Province, Kirehe District, after canvassing in the Northern, Western, Southern provinces, and Kigali City.

On Tuesday, July 2, 2024, thousands of residents from Kirehe and Ngoma districts, mostly youth and parents, gathered in FPR-Inkotanyi colors, excitedly awaiting the arrival of their Chairman, Paul Kagame.

Before Kagame's arrival, popular artists such as Senderi, Alyn Sano, and Knowless entertained over 200,000 attendees. When Kagame arrived, he was warmly received, and he thanked the residents of Kirehe and Ngoma for their enthusiastic turnout. He reminded them of the shared goal of voting for him in the upcoming elections on July 15, 2024.

Addressing those questioning the large turnout, Kagame remarked, "If using force brings out this many happy people, let them try it and see what happens." He emphasized the unique unity and resilience of Rwandans, stating that many do not understand their political stance due to past leadership failures. He said, "Rwanda had the misfortune of having foolish leaders. We are now building a new Rwanda from those foolish histories. We are in this together."

Kagame assured the youth that they have capable leadership and a bright future, free from the follies of the past. He said, "To the youth, our children who have grown up recently, Rwanda owes you nothing because you have leaders who are not fools, and neither are you." 

The Kirehe site marked the 11th stop in Kagame's campaign trail as he seeks re-election on July 15, 2024, following visits to Musanze, Rubavu, Ngororero, Muhanga, Nyarugenge, Huye, Nyamagabe, Rusizi, Nyamasheke, and Karongi.
