Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) in collaboration with the Rwanda National Union of the Deaf (RNUD) commenced a second training session on sign language. The aim is to ensure that RIB provides unlimited and inclusive services to every individual who seeks assistance. The 20 investigators undertaking training, since September 21, are expected to be equipped to provide crucial services and support to the deaf community, ensuring their voices are heard when they need it most.

The primary objective of the exercise was to equip the investigators with proficiency in sign language and to ensure that every RIB station across the country would have at least one investigator capable of understanding sign language. The effort is also expected to help reduce costs incurred by taxpayers for sign language interpreters. ALSO READ: Sign language in courts: What does it mean?
