The Secretary of RPF Executive Committee in Kayonza District, Michel Nturo Muvange has said there are people with will to join Rwanda’s ruling party member still live with doubt and later make the decision.

Muvange made the remarks after 273 miners in Rwinkwavu Sector, Kayonza District, swearing- in function on Saturday as new members of Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF-Inkotanyi).

The event was held following a series of sessions teaching the miners, who work at Wolfram Mining and Processing Ltd, the principles of the party.

“There are those who loved the RPF-Inkotanyi, but who were still doubting, but after the sensitisation, they made the decision to be in the party. Moreover, there were those who had wanted to join the party but who were under 18, now that they have attained majority age, today was their opportunity,”  Muvange said

He said that they had trained more people, but these are the first who “made an unparalleled step of taking an oath.” Adding  the RPF community expects them to be “good members.”

Joseph Barinda, the coordinator of the company, declared that another group is set to be sworn-in between July and August.

“There are those who loved the RPF-Inkotanyi, but who were still doubting, but after the sensitisation, they made the decision to be in the party. Moreover, there were those who had wanted to join the party but who were under 18, now that they have attained majority age, today was their opportunity,” he explained.

Yvette Musabyimana, 25, one of the miners, said: “What I have learned is that I have a pact to never do bad to any Rwandan, whether young, old man or woman, I have to protect them as much as I can.”

She said more effort is still needed, though, to end illegal trading of mines. “The most important step is to know that it is not right, that we should totally dedicate ourselves to fast-tracking our country’s development,” she told the New Times

“The RPF oath means that if I involve myself in any illegal trade of mines, I will be betraying all Rwandans,” she reminded.

Rwinkwavu mining sites were excavated since 1936. Today, the concession has about 900 workers.
