Backsliding in Rwanda

I thought the situation in Rwanda has improved very much. That it is stable and making steady progress. They have even sent some of their people here for training. Alas, as so often in politics, without the right culture, things go awry. Read this in the Economist,

Violence increased in the run-up to RWANDA'S general election due on
August 9th. President Paul Kagame's party denied involvement in the
recent murders of an opposition leader, Andre Kagwa Rwisereka, and of a
critical newspaper editor.
