Rwanda National Police launches its community development and anti-crime awareness activities to mark its 17th anniversary under the Police week context this Tuesday. After getting solar energy and clean water, beneficiaries say children will improve results at school, and parents promise partnership against drug trafficking.
Testimonies in Gicumbi and Kirehe district as well, are all thankful. RNP handed over 282 solar energy system, clean water sources and improved sanitation, and though beneficiaries recounted their joy to the good leadership that put forward the social wellbeing of the citizens.
Bonifance Kimonyo, 97 of Giti sector in Gicumbi, says it’s for the very first time in his life, to sleep in a house with solar energy. “I never thought I would see this day. Thank you President Paul Kagame for saving our country”.
On behalf of Ruth Uzamukunda, 42 years, it is hard to express the happiness she has with her family of six children, saved from candles. “One of my daughters is a candidate and in the previous exams she scored 76 percent. I can only imagine her excelling further because she has all light”.
She adds, “Our President saved us from malaria when he gave us mosquito nets, gave us heifer; now he has given us solar and saved us from eating in darkness. We can only pray for him to live longer”.
Belancille Yankurige, 47, is determined to partner with police. She argues, “The only reward I can give our police is to report drug dealers and criminals in general. My dream has come true because I have solar energy”.
Similarly, Lamech Kinyata, 39 years, expresses gratitude of his family and the whole village. “About 600 people in this village had one clean water source, which also had one tap. People would line up for hours. With these new four water sources and multiple taps, it will save time for other development activities. Children will now have more time for their studies both at home and school”.
To close, Samuel Ndabakeka, feels newly born. “This is another new day in my family. I was buying a candle for each of my four children every day to revise and do their homework. These candles have smoke which was also hazardous to my children. Well, that’s no more now”, says this 42 years old man from Kirehe.
