The seventh Joint Permanent Commission (JPC) between Rwanda and Kenya ended at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kigali yesterday with commitment from both sides to implement agreed on decisions.
Amb Eugene Munyakayanza, thePermanent Secretary in the Ministry, said that following up on the decisions was always a challenge.
“Implementation has always been a problem, but I am sure now work will be done differently since what we have achieved in this meeting will help to monitor the implementation process,” Munyakayanza said.
His Kenyan counterpart, Thuita Mwangi, also concurred, but added that they addressed the challenges.
“We have also been able to re-examine the challenges, particularly meeting deadlines that had been agreed upon,” Mwangi said.
“This time around, we have been able to focus more specifically on the areas that had not been accomplished and we have established clear timelines in which they should be established”.
