Members of Parliament will start a month-long outreach on Monday to assess Rwandans’ welfare, citizen participation in local government’s activities and existing measures towards public hygiene and fight against malnutrition.

The lawmakers will visit the Northern Province from 8th to 12th January, Western Province from 15th to 20th January and City of Kigali from 3rd to 5th February.

During the exercise, legislators will also assess the implementation of good settlement master plan.

According to the Parliament’s press release, MPs will mainly assess the implementation of key projects in the 2017/2018 fiscal year and citizen participation in their development programmes.

“They will also assess hygiene, fight against malnutrition programmes and the progress on “bye bye umwanda (poor hygiene)” programme,” it reads.

“During the tours, people will have the opportunity to discuss with legislators about their development and other government programmes. MPs will get to know in deep daily lives of the population, understand their problems and give orientation on how they can be addressed,” reads the statement.

MPs’ outreach exercise has become a yearly routine since it was launched in 2015.
