A total of 17,249 families living in spontaneous settlements and 3,905 living in high risk zones will get houses in model villages by 2017/2018 fiscal year, according to the Ministry of Infrastructure (MININFRA), where the government targets to invest a total of Rwf15 billion in constructing houses that will accommodate these families.

Speaking this week while signing performance contracts with institutions working under MININFRA, Minister James Musoni said that in this fiscal year a total of 21,154 families will be relocated to model villages.

He said that model villages have been constructed in all districts and the next target is to establish them in all sectors of the country so that individual families can extract samples and construct their own.

"Last year, we constructed model villages in all districts; now, we want to build them in all sectors so that individuals can easily copy and implement the structural plans in their respective localities" Musoni said.

The Rwanda Housing Authority Director General, Augustin Kampayana said that last year, government invested Rwf22 billion in constructing model villages in all districts.
