The Senate on Wednesday confirmed extension of a contract for Ms Aloysie Cyanzayire to serve another five-year term as the Chief Ombudsman, while Aimé, Bosenibamwe was appointed as Director of the National Rehabilitation Service (NRS).
The plenary session presided over by the Committee on Political Affairs and Good Governance chaired by Senator Jean Nepomuscène Sindikubwabo approved Cyanzayire reappointment basing on her past competitive performance in the same office.
“Cyanzayire is capable and meets the needs of the office given her record as head of the same office. She has the experience, and we considered the work she has done during her last term in office. The commission believes Cyanzayire fits in this position,” Sindikubwabo said.
About Bosenibamwe, the commission said that after holding a discussion with the newly established (NRS) it was approved that former Governor of the Northern Province is capable of leading the new institution to realize its objectives.
