President Paul Kagame of Rwanda has urged Rwandans to demand for services they need from his government instead of crossing boarders to seek greener pastures in other countries.

Kagamsaid this at the launch of a multi-billion model village in rural Horezo, Muhanga district in Rwanda’s Southern Province. The multi-billion housing project is seated on 156 hectares with 25 units of four houses each hosting over 100 families.

The $21 million model village also has schools, hospital and sporting facilities among others. In his statement, Paul Kagame said, “access to electricity, water and other services provided for by the government is your right, you should hold us accountable and demand that we deliver.

Do not accept to pay anyone a bribe because delivering and serving you is our duty.

We will try our best to provide what you want –schools, hospitals, water, and electricity. In fact, you should be asking us to provide these basic needs if we don’t provide them on time because it is your right to demand them,” Kagame said.

“For citizens that continue to travel long distances and cross borders to look for services, it is our responsibility to ensure that we do everything we can to be able to provide what you need near you.

There is no border you can cross and get better services than what we can provide here, whether it is healthcare or education. We shouldn’t be crossing borders for any reason,” Kagame further said.

Kagame’s statement comes shortly after 72 Rwanda nationals were arrested Lukiga – Uganda and deported.

Tanzanian president John Pombe Magufuli has urged Tanzanian women to “give up contraceptive methods” insisting his country needs more people.

According to The Citizen daily newspaper, Magufuli said, “You have cattle. You are big farmers. You can feed your children. Why then resort to birth control? This is my opinion, I see no reason to control births in Tanzania.”

“I have travelled to Europe and elsewhere and have seen the harmful effects of birth control. Some countries are now facing declining population growth. They are short of manpower.”

Magufuli urged Tanzanians to ignore bad advice disseminated by outsiders saying: “It is important to reproduce.”

“Women can now give up contraceptive methods,” he added.

President Uhuru Kenyatta departs from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

 

 

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has left for Washington DC ahead of his meeting with President Donald Trump on Monday.

The plane carrying Uhuru and his delegation departed Jomo Kenyatta International Airport shortly after midnight.

DP William Ruto and Chief of Defence Forces General Samson Mwathethe led senior government officials in seeing off the President.

During his visit to the US, Uhuru will visit the White House at the invitation of the US President with whom the Kenyan Head of State will hold talks on a wide array of subjects among them trade and regional security.

Over the years, Kenya has remained a strategic and key partner of the US in the management of peace and security in Eastern Africa covering the Great Lakes and Horn of Africa regions where the country is at the core of restoring peace and stability in South Sudan.

In Somalia, the Kenyan armed forces are involved in the fight against the Alshabab terrorist group under AMISOM.

Besides trade and regional security, the two will discuss ways of strengthening the blossoming Kenya-US relations focusing on the two nations’ shared democratic values and mutual interests.

The Uhuru-Trump meeting comes at an opportune time for Kenya considering that Uhuru is currently involved in implementing programs to bolster trade and investments in the country through his administration’s Big 4 development agenda.

The Kenyatta and Trump meeting is a major boost for Kenya’s tourism and aviation sectors as it happens just weeks before the commencement of direct flights from Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to New York in October this year.

Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma who is already in the US on Thursday met with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo ahead of the meeting between the two presidents.
