Paul Kagame has just won a second seven-year term as president of Rwanda. It was a resounding victory with a majority of 93.8 per cent.Credited with turning the country around after the horrors of the 1994 genocide, Rwanda is now well-developed with a thriving economy.But critics say the price of that progress is a flawed democracy.Kagame has been accused of suppressing critical media, arresting those who challenge his ruling party and barring some candidates from the elections.There are also allegations, hotly denied by Kagame, that he has had a hand in violence against opponents.On this episode of Talk to Jazeera, Rwanda's president talks to Andrew Simmons about those accusations and his main priorities for his second term.This episode of Talk to Jazeera aired from Friday, August 13, 2010.
