Kigali: As part of the events lined up for the 30th anniversary celebrations of the RPF Inkotanyi, the political organization has organized an international conference that will bring together global leaders and scholars among others.

The forum that will take place at the RPF Inkotanyi headquarters will be held under the theme; “liberation and transformation: realizing a dignified and prosperous Africa.” Around 1,000 delegates are expected to participate.

“The conference will focus on three main thematic areas: Liberation, Transformation and Self-Reliance. Two sessions are planned with formats ranging from high-level plenary to storytelling, with speakers representing the scope of RPF-Inkotanyi 30 year journey.”

The conference will also be an opportunity for other political parties, partners and friends of the RPF-Inkotanyi to share their experiences and learn from each other’s journeys.

According to the concept note of the conference, it will help increase the awareness of RPF-Inkotanyi’s ideology and its adaptation over time.
