Kagame pledges another Ferry to Nkombo residents
President Paul kagame has pledged to give residents of Nkombo Island the second Ferry that will enable residents access the rest of the neighbouring communities for better business and improve their welfare.
The pledge comes at a time when the Nkombo residents have been using only one ferry (also donated by the president) after many years of difficulty trips crossing from the island to other parts of the Lake Kivu, in the western region.
â€œOur citizens may not have equal abilities but they must be given equal access to opportunityâ€ Kagame Insisted.
The President has been on a two- day tour in Rusizi and Nyamaseke to interact with the citizens and share challenges and solutions to the problems affecting the residents, but also challenging the citizens to work hard to ensure the country fully achieves self-reliance.
At times when Nkombo was considered as an isolated part of Rwandans because of lack of transport and use of a different dialect from mainland Rwanda, Kagame encouraged the residents to strive for more.
â€œWe have achieved a lot but there is still a long way to go. We want a nation where every citizen is prosperousâ€ Kagame persuaded
