Whenever David Himbara speaks or writes about The NewTimes, he does so in bad faith as he usually does on everything related to Rwanda. The RNC propagandist, who sometimes presents himself as an economist (or a development expert or even a democracy activist) while acting as a journalist, surely cannot match a seasoned media outlet like The NewTimes.
Himbara’s contention this time is about World Bank statistics and the debt to GDP ratio. Whereas The NewTimes is a real news source that actually carries out interviews, getting first-hand information, Himbara relies on google searches. To emphasize his distortions, David Himbara is a fan of statistics forgetting that we all know the say:
“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” By British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.
Instead of hiding behind a screen, playing with numbers beyond his comprehension, he should write to email@example.com and ask for clarification, I would give David Himbara The Newtimes phone number, but I doubt he ever leaves his screen.
