Rwandan senate clears Kagame for third term

Rwandan President Paul Kagame, a former rebel leader, has been in power since 2000Rwanda’s upper house of parliament passed Tuesday a constitutional amendment allowing President Paul Kagame to run for a third consecutive term in 2017, and potentially remain in power for the next two decades. “If I ran again, I would do more of what I am doing to improve the well being of the citizens of Rwanda,” Kagame said Tuesday, in a message posted on the presidential Twitter account. Minor changes made by senators will now return to the lower house for voting, but those do not include the key sections related to the possible extension of Kagame’s rule.
