To kick-start, he said that Rwanda is among the countries which top the ladder when it comes to talking about peace and security. Nevertheless, he said that there are a number of things causing the world great concern, and particularly the government of Rwanda. Those things are jeopardizing peace and security world over, and Rwanda is not spared though its situation is not so far alarming.
Just to cite a few examples among others, he said, “Our world today is experiencing a set of issues which make it difficult to maintain sustainable peace and security. Just to give you examples, I can cite terrorism, human trafficking, sexual violence made to young girls and women, violence in households, drug abuse as well as beating and causing wounds. It’s a pity that young people like you today are blindly engaged into some of such abominable actions instead of pursuing their dreams and ensuring a bright future.”
The Chief Inspector of Police elaborated on each issues and everything considered, he exhorted the youth in attendance to live a life free of drugs, and premarital sex. Particularly, he urged them to learn to say “no” to people who come and dupe them aiming at engaging them in terrorist acts, and the like.
