Visitors to Rwanda are often blown away to find a country where things are working efficiently.

The country is clean and tidy, with lush views – and the capital Kigali has good Wi-Fi.

Everyone pays their taxes, the services are reliable, the roads are safe – the government says it is ‘one of the safest countries in the world’.

Take the example of a pandemic. Rwanda did not hesitate to take the coronavirus by the horns: containment measures were quickly implemented and strictly enforced. Today, more than 60% of the population is vaccinated – a feat the British Medical Journal calls “in a continent that is a desert of COVID-19 vaccines.”
