Rwanda's Paul Kagame steps in for third term, after winning Presidential Election

Rwanda's incumbent President, Paul Kagame has sealed a crushing victory in presidential elections that granted him a third term in office, extending his 17 years in power.


The 59-year-old former guerrilla leader secured 98.66 percent, the National Electoral Commission's Executive secretary Charles Munyaneza told a news conference.

Kagame, who cast his vote in Kigali's Rugunga polling station earlier on Friday, said he would work to sustain economic growth in the tiny nation.
