    Cheerleaders in Rwanda have dropped their gloves and are now urging President Paul Kagame to run for a third term in office.

    Among them is Rwanda’s Internal Security Minister Sheikh Fazil Musa Harerimana, who is now calling for the deletion of presidential term limits to allow Mr Kagame run for office after his current and last constitutional term expires in 2017.

    In an interview published by The Chronicles, Mr Harerimana, the leader of the opposition Idealist Democratic Party (PDI) but working under Mr Kagame, states that a third term for Mr Kagame “would be very good for Rwanda.”

    “The constitution should be amended so that people can decide. If Kagame stood again, we would vote for him,” Mr Harerimana said.

    Not interested

    In power since April 2000, Mr Kagame was re-elected for a seven-year second term in office in August 2010 and has since publicly stated that he has no intention of clinging onto power.

    “Personally I don’t want to be involved in or changing the constitution so that I stay in power and particularly changing the constitution for that purpose. I would hate it,” Mr Kagame said, shortly after his re-election last year.
