Rwanda drops French as official language

It’s official.
There goes the 60,000 word English report I was meant to spend most of December and January translating into French for an NGO based in Rwanda. Where do I complain? What do you mean, Rwanda has other fish to fry at the moment?
The official languages in Rwanda are now English and Kinyarwanda.
