How tall is Paul Kagame

Paul Kagame's Height

6ft 2 (188 cm)

Rwandan President, who has held office since 2000. A NY Times journalist once mentioned "I knew Kagame was tall, about 6-foot-2, but I was struck by how thin he was, almost sick-looking, with bony shoulders and delicate wrists."

In this one David seems to have 2 full cm but am not to sure maybe it's his hair.

@ EDITOR ROB is it not time to give David Luiz a page?
Editor Rob
Could be weak 6ft 2 there with Luiz, who really isn't over 189

Paul's shoulder's higher but he looks shorter than Obama in those two pics.

@Christian-6'5 3/8 If there is a proper side by side might be 3/4 max. By looking at their shoulder level look 3/4 diffrence. Click Here: Could be a chance Paul have lost half inch at 60 now.

I still don't see Obama being a full inch shorter even if they stood side by side. He only looks 1/4" shorter than him including the angle advantage, and about 5/8" or 3/4" at most if side by side. There are pics where he even appears taller (with some camera advantage) Click Here Click Here

@Christian-6'5 3/8 Obama stand on the advantage angle. Might be full inch between them when standing side by side.

I'll take into account Barack's posture...I do think Paul would have be at least 2cm taller.

Maybe he was a strong 6ft2 in his 20's Rob?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Dec/17
You mean Rainn Wilson? I think the mark that Rob gave him is fair. He did claim 6ft1⅝ and also later 6ft2
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 1/Dec/17

I shouldn't have called you a big joke, my bad. I just find it really hard to believe that a legit 6'2" would ever claim something like 6'1 5/8"

That is one tall ass family!

Tallest son looks at least 6ft6, the middle one 6ft4-5 and the shorter one is maybe 6ft3, just slightly taller than his dad. The wife looks similer to Michelle Obama, I put her close to 5ft11...

Likewise Canson
Canson said on 30/Nov/17
@Rampage: i also respect you very much as a person as I’ve mentioned before and as poster as well. Def lot more than many of the others here
Canson said on 30/Nov/17
@Christian: i hadn’t seen your pics but that sheds light now. He doesn’t look taller
Canson said on 30/Nov/17
@Rampage: is Andrea a him or a her? I figured a woman as she’s never corrected anyone when they referred to “her”.
Editor Rob
Andrea is an Italian Male
Frost said on 30/Nov/17
@Christian The Obama pics are honestly the only places he doesn't look the full 6'2. With John Kerry, Bill Clinton, and George Bush he fully holds his listing.

And there's still the Obama pic above where he's clearly taller.

6'2 is fine in all honesty.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Nov/17
Christian, I take that back, I'm sorry. That was uncalled for. If you think he's 187cm, I respect your opinion. I just think at times he can look 189cm. I just find it hard to believe he'd be a full 3in shorter than his daughter. But who knows?

BTW I saw you come to my defence against Andrea on Boris Kodjes page and really appreciate that. You dont make things personal like him.
MD said on 30/Nov/17
His unusual thinness makes him look taller than he is.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 29/Nov/17

You seriously think Kagame looks taller than Obama in those two pics I posted? Do you need your eyes checked or something? I used to somewhat respect you as a poster, but lately you seem like a big joke. You're the same guy who claimed Rainn Wilson was legit 6'2", when common sense should tell you that if Rainn clamied both 6'1.5" and 6'1 5/8", then he most likey is 6'1 5/8". No legit 6'2" person would claim something so precise as 6'1 5/8" unless if he actually measured that, that's ridiculous.
Canson said on 29/Nov/17
@Rampage: on par meaning no advantage by camera. But he’s taller than Obama is
Canson said on 29/Nov/17
@Rampage: not sure. He appears pretty much on par with Obama’s imho. Barack is just to the side of him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Nov/17
Christian, as always you suck at estimating height...Kagame is further back in both photos and still looks taller than Barack
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 28/Nov/17
I'd be very surprised if Kagame's a legit 6'2". I might've guessed him a bit high even at 6'1.75". Even in the pic above, he looks only about 1.5cm taller than Obama, and in these two pics he actually looks shorter than him Click Here Click Here Yet Rampage thinks Kagame's a strong 6'2"?? Give me a break lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/17
This guy looks 189cm in the above photo
Sam said on 27/Nov/17
I feel like Obama has extremely good posture. He can pull off looking 6'1.5 a lot of the time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/17
Barack isn't standing as tall in that photo though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Nov/17
I get a strong 6ft2 impression
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Nov/17
Looks at least 6ft2
Frost said on 25/Nov/17
Thanks for the addition. No I think 6'2 is the right listing. At a few angles he seems not much taller than Obama, but with Bill Clinton and George Bush he looks 6'2 and sometimes a little more.

With 6'3 John Kerry (who I believe dropped a bit in recent years):
Click Here

The tutsis and hutus of recent years are much more mixed and with far higher Nilotic and Cu****ic admixtures. Clustering slightly closer to Somalis and South Sudanese iirc. Who are by far the tallest people in Africa when well-fed and rested. Being Somali myself I can attest to the height gradeur. It is not a myth in the East.
The Shredder said on 25/Nov/17
minimum 6'1.75 , Obama really is 6'1 and he looks 6'2 there.
Redwing said on 25/Nov/17
Hey rob, he looks 4.5 cm taller then Obama?
Editor Rob
not sure he looks that much taller, he has a small head for 6ft 2 range.
Chase said on 25/Nov/17
I could even buy a strong 6'2
EM said on 25/Nov/17
I'd say a little under 6'2".
