A group of 118 young people from abroad organized in ’Rwanda Youth Club of Belgium,’ on Tuesday, July 12, visited Rwanda National Police (RNP) at the General Headquarters in Kacyiru, where they were received and briefed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) in charge of Administration and Personnel, Jeanne Chantal Ujeneza.

The young Rwandans, majority born after the Genocide against the Tutsi in 1994, include those, who are visiting Rwanda for the first time.

This is the second edition of their ’Rwanda Youth Tour’ following their first one last year.

DIGP Ujeneza thanked them for visiting Rwanda National Police adding that the force strives to offer the best services to all residents of Rwanda.

"We encourage openness and accountability because we are here to serve the people. You are all Rwandan ambassadors... our ambassadors ; when you are patriotic, you help to spread the right message, instill Rwandan values and culture in all aspects and contribute to your country’s security and development," DIGP Ujeneza said.

She encouraged them to join Rwanda National Police and to support the national policing and security efforts.

The youth were taken through the history of RNP, its current structures and activities, community policing and human security activities and how it particularly works with and engages the young people in security and development activities.

Kennedy Bizimana, the head of the Rwandan youth group, said that the aim of the club that was formed in 2021, is mainly to help Rwandan youth born in other countries to learn and understand the history and culture of their homeland.

"We started this club last year in Belgium but it has grown to attract other Rwandan youth from 22 countries. They want to see, learn, understand, explore the available opportunities and to reconnect with their country," Bizimana said.
