Power to Those Who Have It!

Phillip Gourevitch

From: Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa


In Chapter 9, Philpot explores the notion of the chosen “good” chiefs who the Europeans used during their imperial and colonial pursuits in Africa. Philpot discusses two African leaders who received this notion during the Rwandan War, Paul Kagame, now president of Rwanda, and Yoweri Museveni, president of Uganda.
