The Gasabo district Mayor, Willy Ndizeye has said that according to the performance contract made for this year the target is single digit unlike the two digits that put the district to the 12th position. He said this during a press briefing held at the district headquarters Wesnday.
Ndizeye noted: “Our district jumped 21st position of last year through commendable improvements. This time we want to jump this position and either rub off second digit or emerge the best,” he said amidst thunderous applause.
Ndizeye said last year’s income generation for the district reached up to Rwf 4.4B with the progress of 39% and this gives the district, the first position in generating higher income among all districts. He further pointed out that this year’s target is expected to reach Frw 5.8billion.
According to the last year’s performances, different roads like Gishushu-Urwego-Controle (2.32km), Gishushu-UNILAK (4.58km) and a few others are under construction with the aim of reducing traffic jams that affects some places mainly Kisementi-Gishushu in the morning and evening hours.
The mayor also said the district harmonized land registration process which has been a big challenge by putting up a new system of electronic filing at the district land registration office to ease services given to the citizens.
In less than a year, the district is also coming up with the new system of video conferencing, a software for online meetings that helps to reduce travel related costs and time. The system will cost at least Rwf223M.
Other progresses reached according to Ndizeye are land consolidation, providing clean water, electricity, markets and health centers.
The anticipated total revenues that will be generated this year are Rwf 14, 787, 049, 927.
