Rwanda Independence Day: Reflecting on 62 Years of Sovereignty

Ingabire Umuhoza was arrested on June 24, 2010, just weeks before the presidential elections

Ingabire Umuhoza Message to Rwanda

On this first of July, I want to wish every Rwandan a happy Independence Day. It has been 62 years since Rwanda gained independence. We have been free from colonization but are still not fully independent. Our country still depends on foreign assistance for development, and our citizens remain limited in our country. Proceeding that way will not lead us to sustainable development and full independence. Therefore, it is important that after 62 years of independence, Rwandans must have a say in decision-making so that development reaches all areas of our country. It is necessary to work together and build a country that respects the rule of law and principles of democracy so we become fully independent.
