The Supreme Court yesterday moved to new offices in Kacyiru nearby the headquarters of Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA).

The court moved to Kacyiru following the recent relocation of the Ministry of Justice to the building in which the Office of the Prime Minister is headquartered.

The Court of Appeal also moved along with the Supreme Court in the same premises.

The former buildings in which these institutions were operating in Kimihurura are set to be demolished to develop a multibillion environmental-friendly complex known as ‘Inzovu mall’ at premises that used to house the Ministry of Justice and Supreme Court in Kimihurura, near Kigali Convention Centre.

The complex mall to be developed by Groupe Duval will be home to ‘Odalys City Business Apart Hotel’ with 140 service apartment rooms, conference rooms, offices, entertainment and exhibition areas.

It will also have Cinema rooms, markets, shops, bars and restaurants, Forex Bureaus, natural areas, children areas, playgrounds, pharmacies, clinics and others.

Groupe Duval is a French company established in 1996 by Eric Duval. With 25 years experience investing in real estate, it currently has over 4000 employees. It has so far earned over $ 700 million from executed projects.

The company has been constructing eco-friendly buildings in Rwanda through its subsidiary ‘Duval Great Lakes Ltd’ led by Vicky Murabukirwa. Groupe Duval has huge investments in real estate, hospitality and food processing among others.

The project will be implemented on 26,000 square metres where green technologies will also be integrated. The plot of land where the Ministry of Justice and Supreme Court are headquartered was handed to these investors as published in the Official Gazette of 26th April 2020.

Construction activities for the multibillion project are expected to start this year, once businesses operating in the buildings have relocated.

It is expected that the National Public Prosecution Authority (NPPA) operating at these premises will also move to new offices in Remera nearby headquarters of the National Commission for the Fight Against Genocide (CNLG).
