No. I didn’t say that. I said one of the most. This was a challenge for anyone to name a more democratic leader in Africa or a country in Africa with greater respect for human rights. War in Congo was raging long before Kagame, and having his forces fight in Congo does not make Kagame undemocratic at home. There are wars in Eritrea and Sudan, neither of which is a beacon of tolerance. People in Darfur are under attack. Al Shabab terrorizes Somalia and Kenya. Boko Haram kills thousands each year in Nigeria. Do you claim Zimbabwe had respect for political dissent under Mugabe? After looking at the countries in the neighborhood, I’ll stand by my original statement: Rwanda is one of the most democratic countries in Africa.

Further, your curt dismissal of the genocide against the Tutsi deprives you of any moral standing to judge them. You came across as an unfeeling person, incapable of empathy for people who were subject to such inhumanity. I suggest you read up on the genocide in Rwanda and also on the history of war in the Congo before making more of your morally obtuse comments.
