H.E President of the Republic of Rwanda, Paul Kagame highlights Drug Abuse among Youths


President Paul Kagame has said that fight against drug abuse is very urgent than ever before because it has become a worrying concern not only in Rwanda but world over. The president said that society talks about drugs in passing yet the problem is destroying the future The president referred to his conversation with Michel Sidbé the president of UN AIDS on efforts that were put in fighting HIV/AIDS which have yielded results.
However, Kagame said, another much worrying issue has now developed – the drug problem “which we always talk about in passing are a very big concern worldwide.” “When you send a child to school, you pray that he returns home safely but the issue is no longer among the children only.”
Kagame told the participants at the National Dialogue in Kigali on Tuesday, “We should have started making it a preoccupation but we are really lagging behind in this fight.” The President said that “The demand is high and the supply even higher. The amount of money involved is in billions of dollars.”
He explained that what is most worrying is that some drugs have become economy of countries and the transaction chains have become complex and the kind of drugs multiple. “It is not about smoking now, but others are now taking injections which they share with others.”    Kigali, On 19th - Dec - 2017
