Tribute to Late PM Meles Zenawi by President Kagame at Tana High Level Forum on Security in Africa- Bahir Dar, 20 April 2013
- “Meles Zenawi was a modernizer who dedicated his life to advance socio economic transformation of his country and the continent. He challenged and rejected conventional development models where they were not suitable. For doing what was right and being to true to his vision, values and principles, he earned the wrath of some but more significantly the admiration of many. Only a man of unusual courage, strong conviction, uncompromising integrity and selflessness could put the widespread criticism in its proper place and focus on meeting the needs of his people.”

“Today, Africa remains the only place where people are warned about the consequences of their democratic choices. It remains the only place where distortions and lies are told about you and you are denied the right to reply by those who teach freedom of expression to the rest of the world. In these circumstances, you should be prepared to stand up for your own. Africa presents us with immense opportunities. We cannot permit others to benefit from these more than us.”- President Kagame addressing the East African Legislative Assembly

President Kagame addresses participants at the 10th National Leadership Retreat - Gatsibo District, 28 March 2013
- “Some wonder who we think we are to believe in our right to defend ourselves. We cannot be people who accept to be submissive. When they ask who are you to speak up for yourselves, tell them who you are, we must not be silent.This is the struggle, we want 11% growth to ensure that Rwandans lead the life they deserve. We are no longer a resigned Rwanda, one where Rwandans did not believe they could be like others. As leaders we must believe and we must make others believe that we can aspire and that we can achieve. We are really no different in terms of those aspirations from those who want to determine how we live our lives. People will believe when they see results.You don't do it for them, you do it with them. That is the duty you have as leaders. That is why we are here, we must have that commitment to deliver.”

- "Instead of divisive politics, our vision was to bring together the people of the country, for them to value each other. It all starts with the people, we are investing in the education, health, capacity of our people to be able to contribute and participate inclusively to Rwanda's development. We are building institutions that will be a firm foundation on which the people of Rwanda can build on. We have worked to make sure our economic growth is not just numbers but is inclusive of all Rwandans."- President Kagame addressing over 200 capital markets investors during Everest Capital Emergent Market Forum in Miami.
