Since he wrote his 'Is Rwanda an African Success Story' (The Independent, July 09-15), Timothy Kalyegira, easily the most committed of media skeptics about Rwanda and its President, Paul Kagame, has been the subject of much-animated discussion in Kigali. On a recent visit there, almost everyone I know and bumped into, said something about him and his 'hatred of Rwanda'. Responses to the article by Rwandans leave nothing to the imagination regarding what they think of him. In his 'Rwanda is not coming down; she'™s on the up, up!' (The New Times, July 16,), Pan Butamire credits Kalyegira with 'a cynical streak' that makes him 'sound ludicrous'.
