He said this on September 27, 2020 while in Huye District to visit various infrastructures, looking at the existing achievements and the needs that are yet to be met.

As the minister was exploring the streets of Huye, he said that the construction of the road has changed the appearance of the city.

“In this World Bank project, especially on roads and other necessary infrastructure, we can see many good transformations and we have reached a very good stage; by next January all road infrastructures should have been completed,” he said, adding that it is very gratifying that the City of Huye is looking so different from what it was two years ago.
