Detecting a Dictatorship Anjan Sundaram

2016 Oslo Freedom Forum
May 24, 2016

Before going to Rwanda, Anjan Sundaram was told to expect a place that was calm, peaceful, and even a little boring. But what he found was much different. The world’s impression of Rwanda has been carefully crafted by its ever-present and oppressive government, led by Paul Kagame. Anjan took the stage at the 2016 Oslo Freedom Forum to tell the other side of the story; the side Kagame doesn’t want you to hear.
