Yesterday the Minister of Local Government Hon. KABONEKA Francis presided over the official launch of a month-long countrywide community development and anti-crime awareness activities as part of its 17th anniversary of Rwanda National Police (RNP).

The activities under the annual ‘Police Week’ flagship were launched concurrently in the Eastern Province (Kirehe District) and the Northern Province (Gicumbi District) under the theme: “Towards Sustainable Safety and Security.”

The official launch drew senior government and security officials, and thousands of residents, and started with special Umuganda on both sites where about 10km of roads were either rehabilitated or constructed, as well as the official handover of solar home systems, cleans water sources and improved sanitation.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Emmanuel K. Gasana said because of the existing partnership in policing with the people, it partly paved way for the current status of development, which RNP continues to build on in terms of support community development.

In Kirehe, the Minister of Local Government Kaboneka Francis, who presided over the event held in Nyamikori, Cyanya Cell of Kigarama Sector, appealed to the residents and beneficiaries in particular to protect and sustain the infrastructures.

Minister Kaboneka requested the residents to take part in ensuring security and curb crimes in communities so that more achievements may be acquired and sustained.

At least 117 households received solar systems in Rugarama Village of Giti Sector in Gicumbi while 155 others benefited in Nyamikori Village in Kigarama Sector of Kirehe.

Over 3000 households and 30 health centres will be installed with solar systems countrywide. With four clean water sources inaugurated in Kirehe, it will serve about 500 households that were in need. The activities in both Gicumbi and Kirehe also focused on raising awareness against illicit drugs, owing to the fact that both districts are considered as one of the major routes for drug dealers.
