Kigali - Rwandan President Paul Kagame says he is not
interested in running for a third term when his term ends in 2017.
Kagame on Wednesday blamed the media for starting a debate
on whether Kagame would seek to alter the constitution and run for another
On February 8 Kagame met the National Executive Committee of
his political party and directed them to plot the way forward for the country
after 2017, fuelling speculation he had asked the party to study how he could
serve a third term.
Kagame at a press conference on Wednesday said he is not
interested in another term.
An opposition political party, FDU-Inkingi, said in a
statement this week that it condemned any manoeuvres by Kagame to amend the
constitution and run for a third term.
