Rwanda. Every year 125,000 young Rwandans enter the job market. Their talents, energy and good will have to be matched by opportunity. The Government continues to invest in ensuring that all Rwandans with good ideas can become entrepreneurs. This is why the Business Development Fund accessible all over Rwanda was created, to support Rwandans to create jobs from innovative ideas, particularly those who have difficulty accessing loans.
I congratulate the winners of this year’s competition for Small and Medium Enterprises from all the Districts – you are leading the way for the development of our country. Rwanda will be built by the hands of its citizens; we know already how far we can go when we work together. Let us continue to uphold the value of work because it goes hand in hand with dignifying ourselves and our country.
Museveni I want to repeat for all to hear that any politician or civil servant who involves himself or herself in corruption will have endangered himself or herself. We shall not only wait to catch you red-handed as has fortunately happened recently. Even by auditing your actions, we can know that you are corrupt. Why should you delay authorization of an investment when you know very well that millions of our children need jobs? Do we need any other evidence if the investor has the money and you delay him? Delaying a credible investor is, ipsofacto, corruption. We shall not need any other evidence,Museveni
