Paul Kagame Appoints Daughter ‘Presidential Advisor’

The President of Rwanda Paul Kagame has appointed his daughter Ange Kagame to take charge of policy and strategy in the office of the president. The appointment of Ange Kagame follows a cabinet resolution at Urugwiro Village on Tuesday.

Ange Kagame is a Master’s scholar in International Affairs from Columbia University. She will be advising her father, the president on key economic policies and strategies.

Before her new role, she has been a senior policy analyst in the same office. Ange joins her siblings who already make up the inner circle of the president.

In January this year, Kagame’s son Ian Kagame joined the Presidential Guard following his graduation from Sandhurst Royal Military Academy. The now distinguished soldier was seen overseeing his father’s security detail in pictures that sent the world talking.

Two years earlier, Ivan Kagame, the eldest of President Kagame’s children was given a node to join the Rwanda Development Board.

President Paul Kagame is towing the same line as his mentor Yoweri Museveni. Museveni has previously been accused of surrounding himself with family members in key positions.

His son, Gen. Muhoozi, also a graduate of Sandhurst is a presidential advisor. As an active duty UPDF officer, Muhoozi has quickly risen through the ranks to become a general. This is something that many people see as just a father promoting his son.

With what Kagame seems to be doing, it will not be a surprise if his family members too rise through the ranks like their Ugandan counterparts.

It should be noted, however, that Rwanda has enjoyed relative peace and security under Kagame’s leadership.
