From this Tuesday to November 8, MPs are on a nationwide tour to find out and monitor the current state of economic and social development in the country as the people are facing the Covid-19 pandemic.

These visits will help MPs to identify and monitor the implementation of plans for the construction and expansion of classrooms and the smooth progress of the growing season of the year 2020/2021 (Season A).

MPs will also check some of the development projects, which the Auditor General of the State and the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) have indicated that they have been delayed or mismanaged.

MPs will broadcast on both Public and Private Radio so as to share their message as they will not be able to attend meetings that connect them with MPs as it used to be.

During the nationwide tour, MPs are expected to visit the selected Sectors in all the Provinces from November 2 to November 6, 2020, while on November 8, 2020, they will visit all the Sectors that make up the City of Kigali.

The Organic Law on the Functioning of the Chamber of Deputies stipulates that it is carried out by all Deputies, the Chamber of Deputies visits the population at least twice a year, with the aim of identifying and monitoring the activities of the Government, advising the public and identifying their concerns and finding solutions.
