It all started with a tweet by journalist Fred Mwasa:

Kagame off from meeting 1000s in Rubavu district behind the wheels himself

— Fred Mwasa (@mwasa) March 25, 2016

Then a Twitter use commented, asking if the President has a driving licence.

@mwasa @PaulKagame Does the Afande has a valid driver license?It would be very interesting to have a police traffic check him out

— Sharangabo (@rufagari) March 25, 2016

Kagame later responded, saying he has one.

President Kagame is a keen driver and he usually drives himself around the city or when he’s travelling upcountry.
