Rwanda dropping French

It's not every day that African countries make huge language policy decisions, but today the BBC Africa news is reporting that the Rwandan parliament has decided that all education will be taught in English instead of French. It'll be interesting to see how this works out in practice. AIM has a number of people teaching theology in Rwanda at university level, I can't see that they will be switching to English until students are coming in with adequate English.
