Prime Minister, Dr. Eduard Ngirente has urged prosecutors to uphold good values and carry out their duties professionally.

Presiding over the swearing-in of newly appointed prosecutors at the primary level in Kigali on Friday, Ngirente told them to consider their oath adding that it is the foundation that binds them to the pact they have made with Rwandans.

Sworn-in are Marie Louise Igena, Angélique Uwimana and Ildephonse Twagirayezu who were appointed by the cabinet meeting of 5th December, 2017.

“The Government of Rwanda expects you to effectively execute your responsibilities. You should work tirelessly and collaborate with others in the profession,” he said.

“Upholding honesty, fairness, flexibility, respect and listen to clients, time management and use of ICT in service delivery should be on top of your targets,” he urged.

Citing examples of recurrent crimes that continue to frustrate the society, Ngirente urged the prosecution body to work on them ruthlessly.

“I call on the prosecution body to take into account cases of corruption, embezzlement of public resources, drug and human trafficking, gender based violence and cyber-crimes,” he urged.

The Premier said the Government of Rwanda recognizes the work of prosecution in litigating cases of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi fugitives who still are inciting genocide ideology around the world.
