Hope for Rwandan evictees

Submitted by on January 30, 2014 – 10:53 amNo Comment


Finally, there is now new hope for Rwandans who were last year evicted from Tanzania under orders of President Jakaya Kikwete.

Rwanda’s Ministry of Disaster Preparedness and Refugees Affairs Permanent Secretary Antoine Ruvebana, says that the victims will get permanent homes and will be resettled by March this year, as part of resettlement phases.

Over 14, 253 crossed into Rwanda following their expulsion from Tanzania in August 2013, and were temporarily resettled in various districts in the country, but a total of 8,361 have since reunited with their families.

Ruvebana said that, with the support of World Food Programme, Unicef and United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), the evictees have been provided with social amenities and education for their children and now it is time to resettle them permanently.

He added that ministry is now providing construction materials while districts are identifying land where to construct the housing units and districts hosting the evictees have been asked to speed up the process of permanent relocating.

Reports from district hosting the evictees, such as Ngororero, Rubavu and Nyarugenge among others, indicates that there is steady progress in the construction of the new homes, which will be complete in two months.
