In his speech, Kagame castigated those who criticise constitutional change - particularly those from the developed world - and told participants that unlike what critics say, democracy in Rwanda is stronger.
He acknowledged that at some point Rwanda will get another president, but that it should happen with utmost peace and by what the people choose.
Sources at the two-day national dialogue say that there is high expectation among the participants that President Kagame will declare his intent to run for a third term in 2017 during the event.
