Basic description - strengthening governance in Africa

Agnes Dinkelman visited Tito Rutaremara in 2014 to ask for his support. As she told him that she wanted to start a consultancy on Rwandan achievements in governance to share with fellow Africans he asked: "where did you get this idea? From heaven? This idea is important for the whole of Africa, how can I support you?"
Tito Rutaremara, Paul Kagame and Fred Rwigema formed the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) in 1987. 'On his visits to Kampala, the trio would discuss rebellion. Rutaremara argued there were lessons to be learned from previous struggles: foreign backing could turn out to be a yoke; Western ideology made a revolution inflexible and exclusive; and strong self-criticism was needed to avoid corruption, factionalism and authoritarianism. The RPF, the three men concluded, must be self-reliant, inclusive - incorporating fighters, civilians, Hutu and Tutsi alike - and internally democratic.'*
After the genocide of 1994, they built Rwanda according to these principles. Today, we can see Rwandan achievements.

According to Transparency International, the definition of corruption is:
'"The abuse of entrusted power for private gain". Corruption can be classified as grand, petty and political, depending on the amounts of money lost and the sector where it occurs.
Grand corruption consists of acts committed at a high level of government that distort policies or the central functioning of the state, enabling leaders to benefit at the expense of the public good.
Petty corruption refers to everyday abuse of entrusted power by low- and mid-level public officials in their interactions with ordinary citizens, who often are trying to access basic goods or services in places like hospitals, schools, police departments and other agencies.
Political corruption is a manipulation of policies, institutions and rules of procedure in the allocation of resources and financing by political decision makers, who abuse their position to sustain their power, status and wealth'.

De dame naast mij, opvallend rank, pakweg 30 jaar oud, gehuld in een lange, strak aansluitende, Vlisco-bruin-zwarte jurk, ontfermt zich over mij en vertaalt 3 uur lang grote delen van de dienst. Ik hoor hoe de 3 priests, waarvan eentje de senior is van rond de 55 jaar, het hele proces van schuld, boete, vergeving, hoop en bevrijding door akkeren, met veel gevoel voor timing, een professionele microfoontechniek en een strakke planning. Want deze heren weten precies wat ze doen.
