Established in 1987, the party has succeeded in implementing an all-inclusive doctrine and has largely been shaped by a struggle of building the unity of Rwandans, restoring democratic values and putting the country on a path of social economic transformation.
The 25th RPF anniversary will be marked under the theme: Governance, prosperity and dignity for our people.
RPF was established out of a desire to satisfy collective interests that are shared by the citizens. Its birth came as a call to end injustices and since its establishment, the RPF has ensured that all its operations are within the confines of the law.
