From African Dictator, please publish this New Times story in it’s entirety for your readers. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. The story shows how Rwanda is impulsively run by this man Kagame. He wanted Rwanda to speak English overnight by decree. But there no English teachers in the country.
Then he tried to have the teachers taught English in holidays, and the whole exercise fell flat. Remember these Rwandan teachers earn about US$50 a month.
Then Kagame came up with an bird brain scheme. He ordered the recruitment of English teachers from Kenya – 4,000 of them so that every Rwandan primary and secondary school gets a Kenyan teacher to teach the teachers English.
The Kenyans will find 200 Ugandan teachers previously deployed by Kagame.
Though supposed to start in January 2012, we are told that the Kenyans will arrive “as soon as possible”.
I ask people to read this story please and very carefully. See what the Minister of Education says. See what the Rwandan Ambassador in Kenya says. It’s all insane.
You will no doubt ask yourself – “are these people for real”? “who is in charge in Rwanda”?
I am sad to my country.
Kagame’s children study in America and the younger ones study in Kagame wife’s school Green Hills Academy with its foreign and well-paid teachers.This man has messed the education system in our country and we are paying the consequences. And he really does not care, to use his favorite phrase.
The question is, what are we to do honestly?
4,000 English teachers to be recruited by FebruaryBy Stevenson Mugisha
Kagame Minister Mathias Harebamungu

English teachers that were meant to be recruited by the Ministry of Education at the start of this academic year, which starts next week, are now expected into the country next month.According to the ministry, the teachers will all be recruited from Kenya. The recruitment is being facilitated by both governments at the ministerial level in collaboration with Kenya’s Teachers’ Service Commission, and Rwanda Education Board.
This was revealed yesterday by the State Minister in charge of Primary and Secondary Education, Dr Mathias Harebamungu.
According to the minister, the teachers are being recruited to train their Rwandan counterparts how best they can improve their English proficiency, both spoken and written.
He noted that the ministry intends to deploy at least one teacher at every school (primary and secondary) across the country. Each would  be responsible for training teachers in the English subject.
This is part of the implementation of the government policy of using English as the language of instruction at all levels of education in the country.
“We have been conducting English training for teachers at end-of-year holidays (November and December), which was not giving us the desired output, hence hiring these people,” Harebamungu said.
He said that having qualified English teachers based at their respective schools will no doubt improve the tutors’ English, which they will impart to their students.
According to Harebamungu, the hired teachers will have open contracts;
“we will only discharge them after our teachers have mastered the language.”
Harebamungu also noted that apart from teaching the teachers, those to be recruited will also organise drama and English debate competitions in their schools to improve students’ confidence in the language.
Meanwhile, the minister dispelled rumours that the Kenyan teachers will be paid as expatriates, saying that none of these teachers will exceed a monthly remuneration of Rwf200,000.
He added that there are also over 200 English teachers from Uganda who are currently teaching English in the country.
In a phone interview with The New Times yesterday, Rose Muchiri, the High Commissioner of Kenya to Rwanda, said they are working around the clock to ensure that the teachers arrive as soon as possible.
“I am optimistic that this process will be completed very soon, courtesy of the existing good bilateral relations between our two countries” Muchiri said.
