Ivan Cyomoro Kagame a obtenu avec satisfaction son diplôme du secondaire dans la Brooks School (Massachussetts, USA) et il a réussi les examens de sélection de la prestigieuse académie militaire de West Point (USA). Il ne sera donc pas – encore moins – un kadogo comme toutes les autres nouvelles recrues des Forces rwandaises de défense.
Il devient ainsi le premier fils de chef de l’Etat rwandais (républicain) à envisager son avenir dans une carrière militaire.
