The Minister of Foreign Affairs and East African Community Affairs, Louise Mushikiwabo has announced that first migrants among the number that Rwanda has agreed to receive from Libya will be in the country at the beginning of next year.

Mushikiwabo was speaking at the National Dialogue, commonly known as Umushyikirano, on Monday.

During a discussion about the National Strategy for Transformation, Mushikiwabo said that Rwanda is a transformational-led country which values human being.

“Recently, Rwandan government announced that the country is ready to receive Africans who were turned into slaves in Libya. This is an act of valuing human being,” she said.

“In partnership with other African States, African Union (AU) Commission and Europe, we are organizing to receive some of these migrants in the beginning of 2018. Such act of humanity and respecting human being is part of main strategies for transformation,” she explained.

Based on Rwandan history, Mushikiwabo said that Rwandans could acquire positive values from foreigners, but leave away bad ones as they continue to value human being.

The Government of Rwanda admitted to receive a total of 30,000 migrants from Libya.
