Umuhamagaro ni igikorwa kiba hagati y'uhamagara n'uhamagarwa. Guhera mu iremwa ry'umuntu Imana yifuje kubana n'abantu, igasabana nabo, igatura hagati muri bo, kandi ishaka ko baba abera nkuko nayo ari iyera; kuko yavuze ngo reka tureme umuntu mu ishusho yacu, ase natwe.
Umuntu yaje gucumura, niho Imana yatangiye kuza imuhamagara iti Adamu urihe? kuko yari yamubuze mu busabane bwayo nayo. Aho niho yateguye kumucungura.
Ibanza gushyira urwango hagati y'inzoka n'urubyaro rw'umugore. Hari igihe umuntu ashidikanya ku muhamagaro bigitangira, ariko iyo wahamagawe urabimenya, ukava aho wari uri ukajya mu kindi cyerekezo gitandukanye naho wari uri; kandi umuhamagaro urarerwa.
Aha twasomye muri Ezekiyeli, Imana yahamagaye abantu, ibanza kubezaho imyanda yabo, ibigirwamana byabo n'ingeso zabo mbi, ibanyanyagizaho amazi yo kubuhagira, ibakuramo umutima w'ibuye, ibaremamo umutima mushya, ibaha Umwuka wayo noneho bashobozwa kugendera mu mategeko n'amateka yayo, bakayasohoza.
Ibi byatumaga bagira imbaraga zituma batsinda abanyamahanga. Amateka ni ibyo Imana yakoreye abantu, igashaka ko bahora babyibuka neza; bikabasubizamo imbaraga, kugira ngo bamenye ko iyabakijije mu gihe cyatambutse ibasha no gukora ibirenze muri iki gihe no mu kizaza, bituma badakukira imitima ibibagerageza. (Ezekiyeli 36.24-27)
Abisirayeli bamaze kwambuka Yorodani, Imana yababwiye gushyiraho urwibutso nk'ibihamya by'ibyo yabakoreye. Natwe iyo twibutse intambara Imana yatuneshereje, bituma dukomera tugakomeza urugendo, tukagira imbaraga n'ubwenge ku banyamahanga bagatinya Imana yacu ituneshereza.
Uhamagawe n'Imana hari ibyangombwa agomba kugira
Aba agomba kwezwa ikamwereka icyerekezo agenderamo. Umuhamagaro wa mbere twese duhuriraho ni uwo kuva mu byaha, ikatubyara ubwa kabiri ariko kuvanwamo umutima w'ibuye ikaduha umutima mushya, tukaba ibyaremwe bishya.
Pawulo yandikira Abefeso yatweretse ko Imana yadutoranije kera isi itararemwa kuko twari mu mugambi w'Imana. Mu bwenge bw'umuntu ntiwabishyikira. Imana yavuze ko yadutoranije kera muri Kristo Yesu isi itareremwa, ishaka ko tuba abera tutariho umugayo mu maso yayo. (Abefeso 1.3-4)
Ntabwo tuzaba abera tugeze mu ijuru, bitangirira mu isi; kuko abera bo mu isi nibo mfura Imana yishimira (Zaburi 16:3). Hariho kwera kw'uburyo bubiri: Hari kwerezwa umurimo aribyo gutunganirizwa cyangwa gutoranyirizwa umurimo runaka; hakabaho no kwera kwo gutungana ugakurwa mu bigirwamana ukaba uwera mu mubiri, umwuka n'ubugingo, aricyo cya mbere kandi cy'ingenzi.
Iyo Imana iguhamagaye ikumenyesha n'icyo iguhamagariye, ikanaguha ibikoresho uzakoresha muri uwo muhamagaro, ikakubwira naho uzakorera; ntiguhamagara ngo igushyire mu rungabangabo. Hari abinjira mu mihamagaro itari iyabo, bigatuma badakora umurimo neza. Utari mu muhamagaro we atera abandi kunebwa, bigatuma bakora nabi; nabo ubwabo bakora ibitari ibyabo bakangirika, kuko baba bakora ibyo batahamagariwe. Kuko umuhamagaro waka mu muntu, umuntu ntiyikoresha ahubwo usigara ukoreshwa n'umuhamagaro. Yesu yabwiye Petero ati “ukiri umusore wagendaga uko ushaka, ariko bizagera igihe utazabibasha, ugasigara ukenyezwa n'undi.
Iyo uri mu muhamagaro wawe ntabwo uhatwa, ubikora neza bigatungana, ntawukubwiriza; umuhamagaro ubwawo ukwigisha icyo gukora. Kandi iyo urangije gukora icyo yagutegetse uranezerwa. Noneho warangiza ukazahembesha uwaguhamagaye. Ababa mu muhamagaro utari uwabo nta ngororano bazahabwa.
Bene Data bakundwa, buri wese nabanze amenye ko yahamagawe cyangwa atahamagawe; niba yarahamagawe amenye umuhamagaro we n'icyo yahamagariwe, kandi awugenderemo neza atunganiye Imana, kugira ngo azagororerwe byuzuye.

The Commissioner for Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Theos Badege has called upon youth leaders to jealously protect and sustain what the country has achieved in the transformation process.
ACP Badege was speaking on Friday to 845 youth leaders in sectors and districts in the Southern and Western provinces, currently undergoing a civic education programme – Itorero – at the university of Rwanda-College of Arts and Social Science (UR-CASS) in Huye District.
Present was the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Youth and ICT, Rosemary Mbabazi.
ACP Badege noted that Rwanda has taken a commendable step in all aspects including security and economic development, but noted that preserving and promoting these achievements is another thing that as youth leaders, should as well give emphasis.
“Don’t give any favour to anyone that tries or with intention to destroy what Rwandans have worked hard to achieve, you are the powerhouse of this country and your role both in security through community policing, implementation, sustaining government policies and programmes should be among your priorities as well,” ACP Badege said.
He seized the opportunity to show them photos of their youth colleagues who were arrested trafficking narcotic drugs, and urged them to fight such noting that it is one of the threats to youth development, affecting their education, health and their characters and ultimately the country in general.
ACP Badege also enlightened to them on the emerging threat of modern-day slavery – human trafficking – the tricks such as deceit traffickers use and appealed to them to always report strangers or other people that may attempt to seduce them with promises abroad.
One of the youth participants Achille Mpagazehe, who hails from Nyabirasi Sector in Rutsiro District, said the lecture was an eye opener to many on cross-section of issues related to security like human trafficking, and their role in promoting safety and peace.
In the same spirit, ACP Celestin Twahirwa, the commissioner for Public Relations, Media and Protocol in Rwanda National Police, echoed the same message in Timba College of Technology where he was lecturing the first batch of over 500 cell and village leaders of Nyarugenge district also attending civic education programme.
ACP Twahirwa, who dwelt much on preserving what has been achieved, and the role of local leaders in ensuring security, noted that timely information sharing with security agencies will be a vital tool in crime prevention and response.
“Make use of advanced technology and communication at you disposal to effectively implement community policing initiatives and ensure public order, safety and security of your people” ACP Twahirwa advised.
He urged them to be active in organizing parents evening meetings– Umugoroba wa babyeyi – where they discuss various issues related to security and the wellbeing of communities.
Police in Muhanga District on Saturday arrested a man for allegedly impersonating police officers and defrauding people.
Jean Damascene Mutsindashyaka currently detained at Nyamabuye Police station was arrested by security forces at about 9:00am in Gahogo Cell of Nyamabuye Sector, Chief Inspector of Police (CIP) John Bosco Karega, the District Police Commander of Muhanga, said.
CIP Karega said that Mutsindashyaka’s arrest followed information provided by one of the victims, who he had conned of Rwf 80, 000.
“He was going around telling people that he is a police officer and promising to get them jobs or help them acquire various services,” CIP Karega said.
“He told one of the victims identified as Claudine Ingabire, that he’s a police officer with connections in Kivu Fishing Project and knows all district leaders, and would help her get a job in the fishing project; that’s how he ended up defrauding her of Rwf 80, 000,” he further explained.
According to the DPC, the Kivu Fishing Project is a ghost firm and doesn’t exist. At the time of his arrest, Mutsindashyaka was found in possession photocopies of academic transcripts belonging to six people and four passport photocopies of different people.
“Police officers have their unique identity, they bear a service card and they are responsible for people’s security not getting them jobs and above that, asking them money. That would as well be bribery or corruption, which Rwanda National Police doesn’t tolerate in any way,” CIP Karega said.
Article 318 of the Rwandan penal code states that “any person who, intentionally obtains a property belonging to another person fraudulently or by using false names or qualities, to give rise to hope or fear of harm and obtains a part or whole of a fortune shall be liable to a term of imprisonment of three to five years and a fine of Rwf3 to Rwf5 million.
A shocking report has just been released indicating how 1,386 men, 24 women have been reported to have raped children in just 9 months.
Agnes Muhongerwa, Director of Gender Based violence Unit at National Public Prosecution Authority has unveiled that 1,406 cases on raped children were received between 2015 -2016 fiscal year where 1,386 men and 24women were suspected to have raped or forced children into sexual intercourse.
Speaking during the press conference last week, Muhongerwa said 802 cases were sent to court while about 400 cases were not considered due to having lacked evidence hence preventing them from being sent to court.
“Violence and abuse in families got 448 cases of which 308 went to court. It seems many crimes remain unknown because most of the time those who face violence keep silent due to various reasons,” she said.
After being sent to court, she said; 647 cases on raped children were read by court and the prosecution convicted 513 cases.
Out of 71 cases of raping adults, the court convicted 59 cases while those concerning abuse in families the prosecution convicted the suspects at 99.4% level because evidence could be found easily.
Muhongerwa said in human trafficking crimes in nine months, prosecution received 28 cases involving 15 men and 13 women of which 8 cases were sent to court and 13 were rejected.
“We still need more campaigns to explain to people, schools on violence and where they can report their violence cases. Everyone can be a victim of such crime. We want them to be responsible to immediately give information on crimes before evidence is distorted,” she remarked.
The prosecution also tried scientific evidences by sending in outside countries 44 criminal cases and 16 social conflicts cases where for example they had to discover DNA to know pregnancy facts.
“We still have challenges because such crimes are committed in hidden places and arrive late which lead to the disappearance of evidence. We also lack birth certificates as many people do not register them. If you accuse someone of raping a child, you must show birth certificate as evidence to prove their age as a child,” she said. She added that some accusers change their mind on pursuing the criminals due to different reasons.
Prime Minister Anastase Murekezi has told Kirehe residents in Eastern Province that government will soon establish a sugar factory that will produce 100,000 tonnes of sugar every year which is over ten times the capacity of Kabuye sugar plant.
Speaking during the community work-Umuganda on Saturday, the Prime minister said factories will require cultivation of sugar cane on about 10,000 hectares to supply it.
The project will be carried out in sectors of Nasho in Kirehe district and Kabare, Ndego sectors in Kayonza district.
Murekezi revealed that there is an investor from Mauritius islands who will be involve in the project. Kabuye sugar produces around 10,000 tonnes and the new factory will help in satisfying the existing demand.
Murekezi also laid foundation stone on a plot where houses will be built for 140 families evicted from the areas for irrigation projects that will irrigate crops on 1,200 hectares.
He lauded Howard Buffet over his irrigation projects to help farmers ensure food security following a drought that triggers hunger in the area.
This comes just a few months after Kabuye sugar plant appealed in March for more land of about 7,000 hectare to grow sugar cane to be able to double its production capacity by 2018. The aim is to support the country in its effort of reducing imported sugar.
They revealed the issue following the floods that affected sugarcane plantation. The plant produces 20% of the sugar needed in the country targeting 30 tonnes by 2020.

According to Rwanda Development Board, about 70% of Rwanda’s sugar is still imported. A supply mismatch is projected to widen to 150,000 tonnes of sugar annually by 2020.
Kabuye sugar plantation grows on 2,700 hectare across the Nyabarongo river swamp and the production has stagnated for years to a decline from 2,000 tonnes last year to 12,000 tonnes from 14, 000 tonnes in the previous two years.
Last years’ floods alone made the factory incur over Rwf 100 million losses in infrastructure and stock damage, while an unknown size of sugarcane plantation was washed away.
The issues were in March brought to the attention of the Ministry of Agriculture officials seeking to better infrastructure and increase produce as well as production capacity.

Enihakore Pentecostal Ministry in Gahanga Sector of Kicukiro District has pledged to use evangelism to raise awareness against gender based violence and drug abuse.
The commitment was made during their meeting with police on June25, and brought together over 400 members of the Pentecostal church.
Rev. Pr Emmanuel Nyandwi, the senior pastor at the church, said: “Preventing crimes and ensuring safer and peaceful society is in our core norms, values and principles as a Pentecostal Church. This meeting is therefore important to remind us that what we do have something in common with the police work, which is to ensure safer and God-fearing societies.”
“Before anyone becomes a member of this church, he or she is a Rwandan. Our role as church leaders is to teach them to fear God and that includes teaching them to be responsible citizens that follow the law and to be Christians who play a significant role in the development of communities and the country in general,” Rev. Nyandwi said.
He pledged strong partnership between the church and Police to front the idea of community policing and to strive for the well being of the people by raising awareness against drug abuse and gender based violence, the two high-impact crimes that are still common in societies.
Inspector of Police (IP) Hamdun Twizeyimana, the District Community Liaison Officer of Kicukiro, said the meeting is part of the ongoing anti-crime activities to explain to all Rwandans their role in identifying, fighting and preventing crimes through community policing.
Addressing the church members, IP Twizeyimana said that crimes like GBV, child abuse and other sexual related crimes are committed by people under the influence of illicit drugs, which is why fighting the vice of drugs, should be “over-emphasized.”
He thanked them for committing to building safer communities and pledged to support them in their awareness campaigns.
The Mayor of Nyabihu District, Theoneste Uwanzwenuwe has called upon residents to give value to the concept of community policing. He said it is a means to collectively and effectively approach the existing security challenges that affect their well being in their respective communities.
The mayor made the call on Friday while addressing about 150 local leaders and members of DASSO in the district, and 172 students currently in their Senior Six vacation.
This was shortly after the weekly sports exercise that also marked the end of the civic education programme for the vacists.
“We need to work as a team, and what that means is that development, security and socio-economic activities should be approached collectively by leaders, residents and security organs. It means that when you notice anything unlawful or derailing government development programmes, always be quick to report,” Uwanzwenuwe said.
He challenged the local leaders in sectors, cells and villages to be close and work with the people, know their needs and issues affecting them in all aspects of security and development in line with the government policy and programmes, which he said lies in their core responsibilities.
The District Police Commander of Nyabihu, Supt. Alex Fata reminded the local leaders and students that sports are important for one’s quality of life both physically and mentally.
Police had been asked to head sports activities that afternoon in the district.
Supt. Fata urged them to give value and always participate in Friday sports events adding that it’s both a national policy and for the benefit of an individual as well.
He commended their impact in identifying, reporting, fighting and preventing crimes, but added that there are still gaps that give wrongdoers space to carry on with their criminal activities like drug dealers, child abuse and issues related to domestic violence, which should be reported.
“You have equal responsibilities as well to report anything you think will affect the wellbeing of the people and the country in general,” he said, adding that community policing is theirs to jointly work with the police to front the ideal of safety, security and peace as the backbone for development.
15 Rwandan companies from different sectors will participate in the 2016 Dar-es Salaam International Trade Fair in Tanzania.
Local manufacturing, cosmetics, agro processing, handcrafts, leather products and textile companies will be part of the event which will kick off tomorrow and end on July 8.
According to Eric Kabeera, the head of communications and marketing at Private Sector Federation (PSF), the event is a chance for Rwandan producers to search for new market opportunities.
“Tanzanian is one of our major trading partners and events like this is an opportunity for local manufacturers to exploit new export markets and exchanging business ideas with other international exhibitors,” he said.
Albert Munyemana of Art Mix Media, one of the Rwandan exhibitors taking part in the expo, said: “Such an international event helps us as Rwandans to compare ourselves with others and know where we are not performing well, where we need to improve.”
Esaie Bitegetsimana from ESE Urwibutso encouraged Rwandan companies to always participate in different exhibitions held in the region and beyond, saying that this will enable them to be more competitive in producing and providing quality goods.
As part of the ongoing Rwanda National Police intensified operations and awareness against drug abuse, about 210 litres of locally made illicit brew were seized and poured in the districts of Huye, Nyarugenge and Burera on June 24.
According to Police, illicit drinks were seized after residents in the respective districts called police. Also seized were 63 rolls of cannabis in Nyagatare District.
Scores of people found either distilling or drinking the illicit brew were also arrested in the separate operation.
Chief Inspector of Police (CIP) Andre Hakizimana, Police spokesperson for the Southern region, said that there is improved and strong involvement of the general public in fighting drug abuse among other crimes, which continues to facilitate police successful operations.
“Fighting drug abuse is one of the priorities of Rwanda National Police because we believe that by combating this vice, we will be preventing other crimes it brings along like assault and domestic conflicts,” he said.
“The public have played a significant role in this case and no doubt, this partnership, if strengthened will ensure sustainable security,” he added.
Mauritius ACS Limited – a Mauritian firm – will soon set up a sugar factory in the Eastern Province. This was revealed by Premier Anastase Murekezi on Saturday during the monthly community work in Cyambwe cell, Nasho sector Kirehe District.
To curb the importation of sugar, Murekezi said sugar cane is to be grown in Nasho, Ndego and Kabare sectors in the districts of Kirehe and Kayonza.
“The investor has already completed soil tests and negotiations with Mauritius ACS Limited investors are finished,” said the Prime Minister, adding that the plant is expected to produce 100,000 tons of sugar when operating at full capacity. The factory is to be established on a 10,000-hectare piece of land where sugar cane will be grown.
The local demand for sugar is more than 80,000 tons per year. Kabuye Sugar Works, Rwanda’s only sugar plant which is owned by Uganda-based Madhvani Group, produces about 10,000 tons annually out of its estimated full capacity of 60, 000 tons. This leaves the country to rely on imported sugar to meet consumer demand.
Rwanda could save $28 million (about Rwf20 billion) on sugar importation when the Mauritian investor starts operating.
According to Rwanda Development Board (RDB), the market for raw sugar in the country and the region is growing faster while local production covers less than 30% of the local demand. 70 % of the sugar is imported but the target is to increase domestic production to cover 100 % by 2020 where the supply gap is projected to widen to 150,000 tons annually.
President Paul Kagame has told a youth gathering at Amahoro National stadium how this country belongs to them and that they should work together to make it better. The president made the remarks today during the closing of Itorero of youth leaders ‘Inkomezamihigo.’
The event was attended by over 2000 youth leaders. “We want to see you strive to learn, to contribute to play your part in this country because it belongs to you,” Kagme assured the energetic gathering.
“Education is about learning to work together to become who you should be and reach your potential. You will be defined by your culture, your actions and who you strive to be. We choose to use our diversity not as a cause for division but as a source of strength to achieve a common vision,” President Kagame added.
“Being young is not enough, there is an investment that you must make in yourself; invest in energy, passion, strength to face the challenges of your own life and of your country. You must be committed to investing in yourself and to playing your part, do not take being youth for granted. It is not enough we want to see the substance not just the form,” he said.
“ Security is when citizens trust that leaders are there to serve them with no injustice, the moment you believe that you are better off being taught who you should be, you have lost your worth and your dignity,” the President remarked.
“They called us a small failed state but we refused to fail, we refused to be small we are not small. I am asking you to make one clear choice, the one that costs us a lot, because being big is where we belong,” President Kagame told the youth who kept cheering and applauding him because of his inspirational remarks.
Rwanda is to host Africa Carbon Forum tomorrow where over 1,000 climate change experts will put heads together to bring lasting solutions.
Carbon market players, policy makers and project developers from across Africa will convene in Kigali to discuss Africa’s road map to sustainable development, shared prosperity and how to turn climate challenges into opportunities.
The gathering will also discuss sources of climate finance and how to access them. This is the first major conference on climate change since more than 170 countries, including Rwanda signed the historic Paris Agreement on Climate Change in December last year.
Speaking during the presses conference on this development earlier today (Monday), the minister of natural resources, Vincent Biruta said the forum will focus on the implementation of the Paris Agreement for low-carbon and transformational development in Africa.
He said Rwanda is among many countries that have already ratified to the agreement recently. “The Paris Agreement on Climate Change is an ambitious plan to limit temperature increases to below 1.5 degrees Celsius and manage the impacts of a warming planet. We must now turn this global commitment into local action. Rwanda looks forward to sharing our experiences of green growth and climate resilient development with the continent and learning from others,” Vincent Biruta said.
The Africa Carbon Forum is one of the largest gatherings of green growth and climate resilience experts from around the world. Rwanda was selected to host the conference because of its environment protection and climate change mitigation efforts.
These include a ban on non-biodegradable plastics, the restoration of degraded ecosystems, the creation, reforestation and protection of national parks and the promotion of renewable energy.
Other programmes, Biruta said, include; boosting renewable energy production, control car and industry emissions, water harvesting and irrigation, providing timely information on climate trends and extreme weather events to ensure those who call Africa home are fully prepared for the impacts of climate change.
“Countries in Africa feel the dangers of climate change and climate action can give to sustainable development. With the right climate policy choices, and by working together, countries can spur investment that benefits people and the atmosphere for sustainable development,” said Daniele Violetti, Chief of Staff, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Minister Biruta highlighted that during the forum, Rwanda will share the work of the country’s Green Fund ( Fonerwa ) , an environment and climate change fund which invests in the best public and private projects that support Rwanda’s commitment to building a green economy.
He said the fund is currently financing 33 transformative climate resilience initiatives across the country. The fund has also already mobilized over$100m to finance such projects.
Africa Carbon Forum is held every year since 2008 and is organized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat in collaboration with different partners including the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the World Bank, the African Development Bank (AfDB), Africa Low Emission Development Partnership and the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA).

Judith Heard Kantengwa has applauded Rwanda’s fashion industry for its distinct class and creativity. Heard who joined the industry in 2006 says it’s a wonderful thing to see Rwanda’s fashion designers develop such amazing skills in a very short time. Representing Moses Fashions (MOSHIONS) at the recently concluded Kigali Fashion Week grand finale, Heard said she was honoured to be part of the prestigious event.
In an exclusive interview with The Rwanda Focus, she said that she was impressed by the way fashion industry in Rwanda is improving lately. She hailed the organizer’s character and designers’ innovations on their clothing products.
“Fashion industry in Rwanda is having an unbelievable improvement. Coordination, creativity, character; what can I say! Its amazing. It’s just two years since I was last here but you can see that a lot has been done and the standard is getting better and better,” she said.
“Whichever style I found, I could not hide my excitement and say; ‘Oh my God!’ Here, local designers have very good fashion products. It’s amazing! And, in a few years, Rwanda will be at an extraordinary level in fashion. Many, not only I, can’t believe how it is improving,” she added
“Everything is in line, they have enough funds to afford a suitable place, good and comfortable venue for the fashion event. The local fashion designers are really creative on their clothing products. I got really impressed, it is unbelievable,” she concluded.
“Ruheru collection reminds the designer of his past village life, in the village home to his family where he used to see children of his generation wearing big shirts and holding flowers in their mouths.
So he chose to exhibit his collection of that kind in Kigali Fashion Week 2016 in memory of the kind of designs worn by children of his times in his village of muddy-built houses but surrounded by gardens of flowers,” Judith Heard explained.
A woman suspected of trafficking narcotic drugs into the country has been arrested in Rubavu District.
Jacqueline Nyiranzitonda, 36, was apprehended in Rubavu Sector by night patrols, after they recovered about 30 kilogrammes of cannabis.
She was later handed over to Police and currently detained at Gisenyi Police Station. At the time of her arrest, Nyiranzitonda was also found with three mattresses said to have been stolen from different homes.
Police in Rubavu said it is investigating her likely link with other suspected drug traffickers and people involved in theft in the district.
Her arrest came a day after a week-long campaign against drug abuse was launched at national level. It also came a day after other 90 kilogrammes of cannabis were also destroyed in Nyamasheke District on June 25 in a public awareness and destruction exercise.
The narcotics in Nyamasheke had been seized in separate operations conducted in the past two months. The Western Province is said to be one of the major routes for drug traffickers from the neighbouring countries.
According to Rwanda National Police (RNP), most of cannabis is seized on Mukamira-Ngororero-Muhanga and Rubavu-Musanze-Kigali roads while other substances like Blue sky are smuggled into the country through Burera borderline, although the region is in some cases used as a transit route to the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Celestin Twahirwa, RNP spokesperson said that such successful operations result from the intensified activities that include sensitization campaigns in communities and schools, and the role the general public play under the auspice of community policing and timely information sharing.
“The philosophy is that in every drug related case, be it trafficking or consumption, someone failed somewhere,” said ACP Twahirwa.
The 19 year-old talented achiever is to represent the country at the Miss World slated for October 16th Washington.
Jolly makes history to record as she becomes Rwanda’s first Miss to attend Miss World pageant. The beauty queen has recently been influential and inspiring to the youth as she made different community works, fundraising campaigns, public awareness and more.
Rwanda is one of the two new countries to be represented in the pageant since the competition started 65 years ago, alongside Bangladesh.
“Proud to be a new face taking part in Miss World. So our girl needs possible support to make her feel strong and confident in order to impress in the competition. And I am sure she can make it,” says Kagame Ishimwe Dieudonne, Rwanda Inspiration Backup Chief.
Spanish Mireia Lalaguna won last year’s Miss World award held in Sanya. Jolly is now in happy mood but stresses that she cannot do anything without Rwandans’ support.
“I think this is just the beginning and this is where I need the support from Rwandans to help me raise the country’s flag proudly and confidently,” she adds.
