The Model village valued at Rwf18.4 billion was constructed by Rwanda Defence Force in partnership with other Government Institutions and handed over to 120 families as Rwanda marked the 29th Liberation Day Celebration.
The Model Village consists of residential houses, Early Child Development (ECD) school, a mini-market, furniture workshop (Agakiriro), a health post and a poultry shed. The facility also has tarmac roads, electricity and water.
While addressing residents, Premier Ngirente first expressed solidarity with the local population who recently suffered from disasters that claimed lives of citizens and destroyed infrastructures in Rubavu District and other districts in Western and Northern provinces.
In his remarks, Dr. Ngirente said that Rwanda’s achievements in the last 29 years were possible due to unity, good leadership and security the country has enjoyed, thanks to the leadership of President Paul Kagame.
He emphasized that the real meaning of Liberation is to strive for development and encouraged the population to work hard and achieve more development.
The event was attended by Senior Government Officials including Ministers, Defence and security officials including the Senior Defence and security Advisor to the President, the Chief of Defence Staff and the Inspector General of Police among others.
