Rurangirwa was speaking yesterday during the handover ceremony with outgoing Minister Jean Philbert Nsengimana.
“I will work hard to implement these programmes handed to me now. I am lucky because I am not coming to start from scratch, a lot has been constructed and I will start from there. There are laws, vision and institutions. I am coming to share ideas and collaborate with you in seeking solutions for the remaining hindrances. My share will be to achieve what is missing. I would like to promise partnership in the team along our job,” he said.
Outgoing Minister Nsengimana pledged support to his successor saying that he will continue to provide his contribution in constructing the nation.
“No one retires from the course of nation building and development. Someone gets off such an appointment, but I cannot say that I am leaving because we are still together. Wherever I will be working, in public institution or self-employed or in private company, I would assure you that we will be together,” he said.
President Kagame appointed Rurangirwa Minister of ICT on last week, replacing Nsengimana who had been in the position since 2011.
