URUGWIRO VILLAGE - A Cabinet meeting that sat yesterday appointed Dr Jean Baptiste Habyarimana as the new Executive Secretary for the National Unity and Reconciliation Commission (NURC).
This follows the recent appointment of Fatuma Ndangiza, as Rwanda’s Ambassador to Tanzania, replacing Zeno Mutimura.
Ndangiza who has headed the commission’s executive since its inception over a decade ago, reported to Dar es Salaam last week and her replacement, Habyarimana, had been hitherto the Chairperson of the commission.
Meanwhile, the same Cabinet meeting that took place at Urugwiro Village chaired by President Paul Kagame approved Jack Kayonga as the Director General of Rwanda Development Bank (BRD).
Kayonga has been acting in the same position which he took over following the departure of Theogene Turatsinze.
Other appointments that were made included that of Dr Magnifique Ndambe Nzaramba as the head of Rwanda Horticulture Development Authority (RHODA), a position that has been held by Peter Muvara.
Appolinaire Mushinzimana was named the coordinator of the National Decentralisation Implementation Secretariat (NDIS) while Edouard Ngirente and Leonard Rugwabiza were appointed to the Ministry of Finance.
Ngirente was named as Economic Advisor to the minister while Rugwabiza will be the director of planning.
