On February 15, President Kagame met with the Qatar Emir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference in Germany

Government of Rwanda announced Monday evening that the 2019 edition of the acclaimed International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award (ACE Award) will take place in Kigali.

The announcement confirms a prediction by The Chronicles as reported in story of February 25 titled: Is Qatar Bringing its International Anti-Corruption Award Ceremony to Kigali?

The ACE Award will take place on December 9 at the Kigali Convention Center. ACE Award is presented annually on International Anti-Corruption Day, in cooperation with the Vienna-based United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

In the government statement, Johnston Busingye, Rwanda’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General, said: “Rwanda is honoured to welcome all distinguished guests, including Heads of State, who will attend the ACE Award Ceremony. We look forward to hosting this important award that seeks to recognise excellence in the fight against corruption and inspire continued action to promote integrity and accountability.”

In 2016, Qatar established the ACE Award. It was named after the Emir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani.

Last year, the award was held in Malaysia in early December and recognized campaigners Thelma Aldana (Guatemala), Muhyieddeen Touq (Jordan), and Gherardo Colombo (Italy).

Emir Sheikh al Thani was in Rwanda in April for a three-day state visit, and had before the visit met with President Kagame three times in only six months.

Four categories of the ACE Award are presented, in recognition of the diverse efforts and areas of excellence in the global fight against corruption. They are:

  • Lifetime/Outstanding Achievement
  • Innovation
  • Academic Research & Education
  • Youth Creativity & Engagement

For all the previous award ceremonies, the Emir himself is present and awards the highest prize. It is unlikely he will miss the Kigali awards, considering he has emerged as good friend of Kagame.

Meanwhile, as the ACE Award ceremony was being announced in Kigali, Kagame was arriving in Doha, Qatar as reported by his office.
