Is Rwanda's president Paul Kagame in serious danger of losing the international community's goodwill for a country still haunted by the ghosts of genocide? He has been accused of autocratic behaviour and of being unrealistic about the prospects for the economic transformation of Rwanda. Perhaps most damagingly, a recent UN report claims that the Rwandan government is breaking UN sanctions by backing rebels in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo. Zeinab Badawi talks to President Paul Kagame: can he reclaim his reputation as a bold and visionary leader or is he destined to go down as another African strongman who failed to live up to expectations?

Four decades on, he remains one of the most successful and closely scrutinised novelists of his generation.
