Last week the government announced that there was an undergoing review of how college and university students were to be helped to return home.
The University of Rwanda immediately asked students to approach its nearest branches and register. UR reports that the registration of 1661 students indicates that they want to return home after a difficult life due to the postponement of the school year.
On May 11, 2020, students from the faculties of the University of Rwanda in Nyagatare, Rukara, Busogo, Rwamagana, Huye and Rusizi happily boarded vehicles to various destinations from where they will connect with their families.
Everyone was wearing a mask, and at 7 a.m. they were ready to start the journeys after undergoing coronavirus tests and being reminded of measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Students have expressed their gratitude, to the Government of Rwanda for keeping in mind that wherever they were, they should go to their families. 23 Ritco buses have been hired to transport the students home.
