RWANDA TO ELECT NEW PRESIDENT WITH KAGAME SEEN AS FAVORITE
Rwanda returns to the polls to elect a president with outgoing Paul Kagame seen as the favorite. Barring any surprises, the 52-year-old American-backed Kagame will be re-elected to another seven-year term. In 2003, in the first election after the Rwandan genocide, he was elected with 95% of the vote. His three rivals in the current race are all his supporters. .
