At the first International Colloquium on Women held in Monrovia this past weekend, Liberian president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf bestowed on Rwandan president Paul Kagame an unbelievably awesome title:
The Distinction of the Grand Cordon in the Most Venerable Order of the Knighthood of Pioneers
Personally, I think its his King-Arthur-like golden circular rims that make Kagame seem like a pioneer.
The big question though: Will Kagame’s profile on his personal government webpage be updated to include this myspace-sounding distinction? More importantly, will Congolese president Jospeh Kabila start addressing Kagame as Mr. Grand Cordon in the Most Venerable Order of the Knighthood of Pioneers?
