Rwanda's elections are slated for the middle of next year and already the campaign fever is catching on.

Ten poltiical parties are getting ready to take on Paul Kagame's Rwandese Patriotic Front (RPF).

Today, plans to add yet another party to the contest ended in chaos.

The Democratic Party of Rwanda was due to hold its inaugural congress but it has had to postpone plans and the prospective leader, Frank Habineza, is laying the blame on the governing RPF.
