The cabinet meeting held on Tuesday 21st September 2021 has approved the draft laws repealing four institutions including the National Commission for the Fight against Genocide (CNLG), National Unity and Reconciliation Commission (NURC), National Itorero Commission (NIC) and the Fund for Support and Assistance to the Neediest Survivors of the Genocide against the Tutsi (FARG).

The four institutions have been phased out, few months after the creation of the new Ministry of National Unity and Civic Engagement (MINUBUMWE).

The Ministry is currently headed by Dr. Jean Damascène Bizimana who served as the Executive Secretary of CNLG prior to his new appointment.

The cabinet also approved the Prime Minister’s Draft Order which determines the mission, functions and organizational structure of the Ministry of National Unity and Civic Engagement (MINUBUMWE).

All the functions that were performed by each of the institutions mentioned above will now be under the responsibility of the new ministry, which will set policy and as well as implement programs.

The Ministry will have the capacity to fully discharge all of its responsibilities in collaboration with the partners and beneficiaries of each of the former institutions whose responsibilities will be absorbed by MINUBUMWE.

The new Ministry is built on four key pillars: National Unity and Citizenship Education; Research and Policy Development; Memory and Genocide Prevention; and Community Resilience.
