The Chairman has since Saturday been visiting countries in West Africa, first Benin, then Guinea-Bissau, before arriving in Guinea-Conakry, with of the hosting president hailing the visit as a demonstration of strong ties between Rwanda and their countries.

The tour and discussions held have also been praised as a reaffirmation of the potential of intra-African and South-south cooperation.
