Rwanda : People’s participation in programs ensures better Development- Executive Secretaries
Undertaking performing contracts achievement without the participation of local people will not be realized the way they are supposed to be done, Executive secretaries in Muhanga district Sectors have said.
Local people should sit down and talk about what they have to achieve in a given period of time as they know things they want so much and get support of their leaders to achieve what they vowed to achieve.
However, this way of achieving performing contracts is not respected as some of the executive secretaries of sectors are given performing contracts and told to achieve them from higher levels of administration instead of it being the other way around.
With such kind of performing contracts, local people don’t feel conversant with them and cannot own them and find themselves on different footing with their leaders.
The executive secretaries of sectors in Muhanga district say that politics from the higher administration should be discussed with them first as they know very well what local people need as they are closer to them.
Jeanne Izabiliza the executive secretary of Southern Province of Rwanda denies this and says that there are no politics from higher levels of administration as all performing levels are got from local people.
Izabiliza says that in case there are leaders who make people do performing contracts without local people vetting them, they should change their ways of administrating and listen to people’s needs since things are to be done in their favour as they are the population.
