Kagame had been de facto leader since 1994, but had focused more on military, foreign affairs and the country’s security than day-to-day governance. By 2000, the threat posed by cross-border rebels was much reduced and when Bizimungu resigned, Kagame decided to seek the presidency himself.

Before becoming a president, Kagame had previously served as  Vice President and Minister of Defence from 1994 to 2000.

During his vice presidency, Kagame controlled the national army and maintained law and order, while other officials began rebuilding the country.
