Even The Financial Times is joining other international bodies to toe the undeniable Kagame line.

The Financial Times was misled by individuals calling themselves economists and researchers, claiming to have a scoop of the year uncovered through research: “Rwanda is manipulating poverty figures and the world doesn’t know!” For that, they quoted an expert professor on the subject and a young lady who testified to living in untold poverty, which the Rwandan government sweeps under ...
