KIGALI - An official at the secretariat of the Works for General Interest (TIG) has expressed optimism over the progress registered one year into the programme.

Anastase Nabahire, an assistant executive secretary of TIG, said this week that TIG activities are currently carried out on 5457 sites countrywide. He revealed this in a meeting that brought together stakeholders in the judiciary at Alpha Palace Hotel in Kigali.

He said TIG has progressed in achieving the three ultimate goals of its inception namely; fighting impunity, promoting unity and reconciliation and at contributing to national development. He said that among the achievements so far registered by TIG there are quarried stones worth Frw397m and 427 houses constructed in Gatsibo District, with hydrafom blocks.

TIG was introduced as an alternative punishment for people who confessed and sought forgiveness for their role in the 1994 Genocide.
