Rwanda Presidential candidate Paul Kagame has promised to transform Ngoma District, should they give the mandate to the RPF to lead the country in the next seven years.
He was on Sunday campaigning in Ngoma District where he made his second campaign stop of the day, which he had begun from nearby Kirehe.
“We want to transform Ngoma into a modern town with modern infrastructure, electricity, schools and health facilities…there are some ongoing activities that should be finished soon but I want this town to change face,” he told the tens of thousands of Ngoma residents.
He took time to thank the people of Ngoma for their hard work, saying that he had no doubt that together, they will transform the region.
“When people work hard, when there is good governance, everything else follows.”
The day’s testimony was given by Telesphore Nyakarundi, who said he was born in refuge in a neighbouring country, where all sorts of opportunity were a preserve for nationals of that country, and not refugees.
“I was trained in modern farming practices and I immediately embarked on putting it into practice and as we speak now, I earn at least Rwf500,000 in profit,” he said.
Nyakarundi attributes everything he has to RPF and more specifically President Kagame, whom he say he got the cue to venture into modern farming practice, and vowed to continue using his opportunity to transform his community.
Earlier on Saturday, Kagame told residents of Gatsibo district the challenges people of Rwanda encountered over the past few years have only made them stronger and determined to work harder for the development of the country.
“We can endure any challenges we face because they are leading us to an even better future,” he said to the applause of the residents.
He told them that much has been achieved but there is still a long way to go, adding that August 4 is an important date for Rwandans in the continued quest for sustainable development.
“The next seven years should leave us in better place in terms of development and I have no doubt about that,” he said in the rally he addressed from Kabeza, Kiziguro Sector of Gatsibo.
