A different country

We were talking with friends about school fees. It seems that some of the private English-speaking primary schools in Kigali are now charging 70,000 Frw per term. Around Cyangugu, many people are earning the national minimum wage of 15,000 Frw per month. Kigali is the only city in Rwanda and it looks and feels increasingly prosperous. The gulf between rich and poor is a problem in many countries, the UK included, but with figures like this, Kigali is becoming a different country.
