President Paul Kagame has directed the speedy completion of a modern hotel currently under construction in Rusizi District, in the Western Province, where he indicated that it is the last time he is reminding concerned parties to expedite its completion as it is expected to generate a lot of opportunities, yet, its construction is being subjected to sluggishness.
The construction of Hotel Bay kicked off in 2008, by Cyangugu Catholic Diocese under the trading name Ituze, but as the diocese resources dwindled, it sought for joint investment. When he last went to Rusizi District in 2015, President Kagame requested the stakeholders, including local leaders to speed up construction activities of the Hotel and assigned Rwanda Development Bank to oversee its construction activities.
The hotel is a joint venture of Cyangugu Diocese, all Western Province Districts and Rwanda Development Bank.
When Kagame was on his campaign trail in Gihundwe Sector, on 28th July 2017, he said that it was his last time to remind concerned parties that the Hotel was supposed to have been completed in 2016.
