Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) René Irere has been appointed the spokesperson of Rwanda National Police (RNP) Traffic and Road Safety department.

The position has been vacant since 2017.

SSP Irere was previously assuming duties in Community Policing Unit.

Recent figures from RNP show that road accidents have gradually reduced compared to the past three years where they claimed 548 lives in 2021, 687 in 2020 and 739 in 2019.

SSP Irere has explained that most accidents result from irresponsible driving.

“There are several causes of road accidents including reckless driving, impaired driving, and ignorance of road sign posts,” he noted.

SSP Irere has urged road users to remain vigilant particularly during rainy seasons and respect traffic rules.

SSP Irere has been named spokesperson of Traffic Police Department.
