Don’t Worry, Be Quiet

Paul Kagame is the sixth President of Rwanda, having taken office in 2000. He appears to be rather firmly rooted in place.

Asked last year if he would step down when his term ends in 2017, he said, “Don’t worry about that.” Pressed to explain, he said simply, “No. It is a broad answer to say you don’t need to worry about anything.”
