Rwanda is a presidential republic with a multi-party system. According to the Constitution approved in a referendum on May 26, 2003, the head of the executive is the President of the Republic, who is also head of the government and is elected by direct suffrage. with a 7-year mandate. Legislative power is delegated to the bicameral Parliament, made up of the House of Representatives, whose members are elected by direct suffrage for 5 years, and the Senate, for an 8-year term. The judicial system is based on German and Belgian law. It is divided into the Supreme Court, which directs and coordinates the activities of all the courts of the country, in the courts of first instance and in the provincial courts. At the end of the civil war, the country’s courts underwent a reorganization, caused by the murder of most of the judges who previously worked in the courts. The death penalty was abolished in 2007. The defense of the country is entrusted to the armed forces, entirely on land, and to the gendarmerie. The army was replaced by the forces of the Rwandan Patriotic Front (FPR). The school system provides that education is free and compulsory from 7 to 14 years old. This, combined with the development of the schools run by missionaries, has led to a decrease in the illiteracy rate, which in 2006 reached 35.1%. The capital, Kigali, is home to some higher technical education institutions and a university. According to COUNTRYAAH, Rwanda is a nation in Eastern Africa, the capital city of which is Kigali. The latest population of Rwanda is 12,952,229.

GEOGRAPHY
Mainly mountainous, the territory of Rwanda occupies in the heart of equatorial Africa a region of highlands, with an average level between 1200 and 2000 m, which structurally is connected to the highlands of East Africa. As a whole, Rwanda corresponds to an archeozoic plate, which still allows the original surface of the crystalline base to be seen; it was raised in the Cenozoic era by the powerful dislocations that determined the progressive opening of the Rift Valley, the gigantic rift valley that crosses Africa from Lake Malawi (Niassa) to the Gulf of Aden continuing, beyond the Red Sea, up to Syria. The formation of this pit gave rise to an impressive volcanic activity; in the Virunga mountains (maximum peak is the Karisimbivolcano, 4507 m), at the north-western end of the country, there are still active volcanoes. The territory looks like a vast plateau with a generally mature profile; it rises rapidly from Lake Kivu (section of the Rift Valley on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo) towards an imposing mountain range, raised edge of the East African trench, which crosses western Rwanda connecting to the Virungas; it finally lowers slowly towards the E in a gently undulating area partly occupied by lakes and marshy depressions. § The plateau is crossed by a dense network of watercourses with a very variable regime, depending on their feeding on seasonal rains; the hydrography is rather complex, as the western ridge represents the watershed between the Congo and the Nile basins. Most of Rwanda, however, pays tribute to Kagera, spring branch of the Nile; only the extreme western portion conveys the waters through the Rusizi River to Lake Tanganyika and from here through the Lukuga River to the Congo. § Despite the astronomical position, in the middle of the equatorial area, the considerable altitude determines a temperate climate in the country, rightly considered one of the healthiest in all of Africa. The rains are abundant but not excessive (on average from 1000 to 1400 mm per year, with maximums in the Virunga mountains), distributed in two distinct periods, from March to May and from October to December; average temperatures are around 20 ºC.
