Notably, CG Dan Munyuza, the former Police Chief, has been appointed as Rwanda’s ambassador to Egypt. Additionally, Ange Kagame, daughter of President Paul Kagame, has been named the Deputy Executive Director of the Strategy and Policy Council at the Office of the Presidency (OTP).
CG Dan Munyuza, who served as the Inspector General of Rwanda National Police until four months ago, will now take on the vital responsibility of representing Rwanda in Egypt.
In addition to these two key appointments, the cabinet meeting resolved on other diplomatic postings as well. Maj Gen Charles Karamba will now serve as Rwanda’s ambassador to Ethiopia and Permanent Representative to the African Union.
Michel Sebera has been named ambassador to the Republic of Guinea, marking a historic moment as Rwanda establishes a dedicated ambassadorship to the country. Previously, Rwanda’s interests in Guinea were overseen by the country’s ambassador to Nigeria. Michel Sebera’s experience as Minister Counsellor in Rwanda’s Embassy in the Netherlands will undoubtedly prove invaluable in this new role.
Besides, Shakila Umutoni Kazimbaya, who previously served as the Director General of Africa at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will take on the role of Rwanda’s ambassador to Morocco.
It’s important to note that these appointments come as replacements for various individuals who have completed their tours of duty in their respective positions.
For instance, Maj Gen Karamba’s posting to Ethiopia follows the conclusion of his tour as Rwanda’s ambassador to Tanzania. Additionally, Shakila Umutoni Kazimbaya replaces the former ambassador to Morocco, Zaina Nyiramatama.
Other nominations saw the former Secretary General of Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF-Inkotanyi), Francois Ngarambe, appointed the Chairman of Chancellery for Heroes, National Orders and Decorations of Honor (CHENO).
