On August 4 2017, Rwandans headed to the polls to elect a president. The candidates were Frank Habineza of the Green Party, Independent candidate Philippe Mpayimana and the incumbent Paul Kagame of the RPF. Many observers expect a landslide victory for Kagame, following the 2015 referendum approved constitutional amendments that allowed him to run for a third term. CNBC Africa’s George Ndirangu and Arnold Segawa sat down with representatives from the private sector to discuss the impact of the elections on Rwanda’s growth story.
