    We talk to Paul Kagame, Rwanda's president, who is credited with turning his conflict-ridden country into one of Africa's biggest success stories. He abolished the death penalty, promoted women's rights and his economic policies have contributed to Rwanda's remarkable economic growth.

    But critics call Kagame increasingly dictatorial and accuse his government of brutally targeting political opponents and intimidating the media. Many have also questioned his landslide win in last year's presidential election in which major opposition candidates were barred from participating.

    We will ask him about all that and also get his views on the 1994 Rwanda genocide.
