Campaign Time!

Tomorrow is July 20th - the day that campaigns are opened for the Presidential election on August 9th.

Guess I don't really know what to expect, except that it might be a bit crazy with the three parties vying for everyone's votes.
Probably the most noticeable will be the vehicles with the SPEAKERS on top of them driving around the city and I'm sure they will be in our neighbourhood, encouraging people to vote for them. Hopefully not too early in the morning so they don't wake us or the kids! Trust me... it's been known to happen!

Serge also said to me today that it will be interesting to see which music artists will have the best campaign songs... interesting.

The local office of the FPR - the party for President Kagame is just down the road from our house, and I have noticed a great increase of activity in and around that office in the last week. Guess they are making sure they are ready.
Tomorrow will tell.... and everyday after that until August 9th.

Pray for Rwanda.
Pray that the right person will win the election to continue Rwanda's journey in healing and development.
Pray that the campaigns and election will be uneventful and take place without any violence.
