Ngirente made the remarks today as he joined the rest of Rwandans to celebrate Umuganura during the ceremony at Nyanza Stadium in Southern Province.
He highlighted that the annual Umuganura has great relevance in Rwanda’s history reflected through the celebration of harvests from Rwandans’ works and aligning it with a commitment to make it a foundation to achieve more.
“While celebrating Umuganura, we socialize, share what we harvested and draw measures to do better to achieve sustainable development striving for homegrown solutions and self-reliance,” he said.
Ngirente explained that seed multiplication inside the country and making them available to farmers at affordable cost are among the achievements Rwandans should celebrate.
“Terraces and anti-erosion systems are continuously built as part of ongoing land conservation efforts. Special economic zones are established in different parts of the country in a bid to promote Made in Rwanda while more programs to expand electricity are intensified where a large number of Rwandans homes have been connected. Indeed, roads are continuously built at the national level, in districts and towns in a bid to facilitate the easy supply of the harvest to the market, promoting settlements and fast-tracking development,” he said.
Ngirente also urged citizens on dedication to work.
