You will not believe how clean KIGALI, RWANDA is until you watch this video. I am beyond shocked — as I had no idea it was this clean and safe until coming here!!
For a brief history lesson – Back in 1994, Rwanda suffered one of the bloodiest genocides in modern history. Within 100 days (April 7 – mid July), roughly 20% of the population, or 1 million people, were slaughtered due to tribal conflicts of land ownership. It was devastating, and feels realistic to me when I learn about it because it happened within my lifetime.
Fast forward 24 years, and the capital of Kigali has done a remarkable job reconstructing and rebuilding itself to be a leading African city in terms of modernity, safety, cleanliness and tech (the wifi here is the strongest I’ve seen on the continent!)
The streets are so clean here in Rwanda that I could eat off them… I’m being serious! I am having flashbacks to walking around Singapore – especially when I went to a swanky rooftop infinity pool over looking the city (reminds me exactly of the Marina Bay Sands).
Have you ever been to Kigali? Or Rwanda? Do you agree with me?
