On May 12, 2012, President Paul Kagame will be delivering a commencement speech at WILLIAM PENN UNIVERSITY. And thereafter, the President will receive an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters for his contributions to the humanities or human welfare.
This remarkable recognition is for President Kagame’s effective leadership, and Rwanda’s determination to heal the wounds inflicted during the 1994 genocide against Tutsi.
Unlike the international community that closed its eyes in 1994 while Rwanda was bleeding to death, William Penn University has chosen to recognize Rwanda’s marvellous achievements under impossible conditions. Against a vicious campaign of lies and distortions by genocide deniers and negationists, the University has chosen to go with the facts on the ground. Rwanda is rising and shinning again.
Empty vessels are loudest: Ann Garrisson is leading the choir of disgruntled fugitives from justice, genocide deniers and the un-employed critics of Rwanda to protest William Penn University’s action to honor President Kagame. A mere cry in the wilderness.
