The Minister of Local Government, Jean Marie Vianney Gatabazi has laid the foundation stone for the construction of Ruhango Bus Terminal expected to be completed at a cost of Rwf2 billion.

The event took place on Sunday 24th April 2022.

The taxi park is being built by 55 private investors from Ruhango District grouped in Ruhango Investment Company.

The Vice President of Private Sector Federation in Ruhango District, Celestin Majyambere has said that the taxi park will be built in two phases to be completed in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

“We won’t face challenges because a large number of private investors are happy and willing to raise funds for fast implementation of this project,” he said.

Minister Gatabazi assured private investors in Ruhango of continued government’s support for smooth execution of their projects including the bus terminal under construction.

“They will build commercial buildings that will be used for different business including restaurants facilitating people to access goods and services easily. Besides, Ruhango is developing gradually due to religious tourism at Yezu Nyirimpuhwe sanctuary. People visiting the place will access good services,” he said.

The Minister highlighted that the bus terminal will also bring more advantages including job opportunities during construction activities while residents will get money from sales of stones and sand.

It will also boost the visibility of Ruhango and advance progress of the district’s town.

The new modern bus terminal will be comprised of a parking spot, one storey commercial building and another section dedicated for restaurants.

The project is run by Ruhango Investment Company which owns 65% shares and Ruhango District with 35%.
