Just some minutes ago we talked about the ongoing story of Nelson Chamisa claiming that he helped Rwanda’s president, Paul Kagame with the country’s ICT policy. Rwanda’s President took to Twitter to set the record straight by dismissing Chamisa’s claim saying that he ( Paul Kagame) doesn’t know Zimbabwe’s main opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa.

Or maybe Chamisa’s presentation had some policies and initiatives that he realized Rwanda was implementing(after he gave Paul Kagame the presentation) and accordingly he thought he had helped Rwanda’s president on his country’s ICT policy.
