Elections campaigns are edging closer to conclusion before Rwandans decide who will lead them for the next seven years in the presidential elections scheduled on August 4th.
This time round, popular candidate of RPF-Inkotanyi Paul Kagame made Nyamasheke District his last stop on the campaign trail in western Province as he met hundreds of thousands residents in the district to make a big promise to them about what he has in store for them in the next seven years.
Residents cheered the incumbent president with flags in the air in support of ruling party RPF-Inkotanyi which Kagame stands for in the upcoming elections.
Many wanted to chat with him one by one, to share with him their experience on what they have achieved during his reign as the head of state but, unfortunately, time could not allow their wish
In her emotional testimony, Vestine Nyiratebuka thanked Kagame for bringing back dignity to historically marginalized groups to which she belonged to.
“We have always felt marginalized and left out but today we have access to all government programs including Girinka. We didn’t have any say in what was happening to us due to bad leaders who were providing no space for us but today we are all citizens with full rights,” she said, adding that her life has positively changed thanks to the current good governance under RPF and Kagame.
“I could sleep on grass, but I am enjoying a modern life with good place to stay, to sleep, and I am a leader at my residential area,” she added.
“We have spent the last 23 years in reconstructing our country. We will do even more in years to come We are trying to create capacity building among Rwandans, with global partnership with an unchanged focus to developing ourselves, “he said.
“We are not afraid of getting involved in fighting for development. Nothing is impossible as long as there is good politics. Nyamasheke’s development progress is in perfect position but we still want to do more to put it at another level so every citizen is reached by development.
Kagame promised the residents of Nyamasheke expanded infrastructures including road construction, electricity, more water in the area as well as the construction of more schools and health centers to improve the livelihoods and socio-economic welfare of the area’s community.
“Nyamasheke has achieved a lot in the past 7 years. Together we will achieve even more in years to come. We will invest in tourism potential here to create more opportunities for you all. We want that electricity reaches all people here in Nyamasheke and other parts of the country. We will also expand the roads and more water will be in your reach. 80 per cent have access on water but we could increase the access above that percentage,” he said.
“Let’s just finish our job on early August 4th and leave the rest to votes counters.”
