I find, that we Africans put up with too much Western interference, like this article. What is it to this man if Rwanda speaks its own mind and counts it’s poor people differently than the Western obsessive compulsive category?
I think we should have less poor people and why do they want there to be MORE people of poorness and poverty-ishness. Why?
