Democratic Green Party of Rwanda (DGPR) has unveiled a plan to build an eight-meter wall at Rwanda’s borders with Burundi and DRC if its candidate wins upcoming presidential elections in August 2017.
The wall will be built under a project that Green Party has called ‘barring enemies of the country’.
Habineza Frank, the president of Green Party who has been nominated as its flag-bearer in presidential polls made the pledge during the party’s general assembly held yesterday.
This has been confirmed by the media relations officer in Green Party,Tuyishime Deo who said; “We will build an eight-meter wall that will be closely protected by security officers. We will also install security cameras relaying what is happening around. The wall will not only be built at Rwanda, DRC border but also at Burundi border because in the recent past unidentified gunmen killed people in Rusizi, escaped and culprits are still at large.”
Green Party neither indicates the source of funding for the mega-structures nor how it will be built in the area separating Rwanda, DRC at Lake Kivu.
