Watch: Paul Kagame Says Rwanda Needs Quality Teachers from Zimbabwe 

The President of Rwanda Paul Kagame on Wednesday told a delegation from Zimbabwe led by their Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Frederick Shava, that Rwanda urgently needs quality teachers from their country.

The head of state was interacting with over 200 participants during the inaugural Rwanda-Zimbabwe  Trade and Investment Conference that is ongoing in Kigali since Tuesday.


“I think Zimbabwe can offer us good teachers,” Kagame said.


“I want to emphasize one thing. I want people first before equipment. I think Zimbabwe can offer us good teachers.”


“Please work on that with the sense of urgency. Whatever number you find of quality teachers we can absorb. Because we need them urgently,” he added.



For a number of years now, he said, the two countries have been working to deepen the ties in different sectors.


“Your presence here is the latest step in that journey and significant one too. I take particular note of the ministers of Zimbabwe who have accompanied this delegation.”
