On Monday, Rwanda will hold its second presidential election since the brutal genocide of 1994.

Paul Kagame, the incumbent president, is credited with restoring peace and stability to the country.

But his re-election campaign has been overshadowed by allegations of political assassination and a crackdown on all opposition, whose parties were disqualified, leaving Kagame with no serious contenders.

Kagame's government has denied accusations of its alleged involvement in the assassinationa of poltical opponents.
So, what is next for Rwanda?

Inside Story, with presenter Teymoor Nabili, discusses with Shyaka Kanuma, an editor at the Rwanda Focus, Harold Ayodo, a writer for the East African Standard, and Peter Erlinder, a professor at William College of Law, St Paul Minesota, and lead defence counsel at the UN Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

This episode of Inside Story aired from Sunday, August 8, 2010.
