MUHANGA – Residents of Mushishiro sector in Muhanga District have agreed to promote patriotism as a way of redeeming their history.

During the period from 1997 to 1998 Mushishiro zone (former Bulinga Commune) witnessed various levels of rebel infiltration from the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.

‘They have been involved in constructing schools, health centers, feeder roads, and collected Rwf1.4million for the 9 year Basic Education programme,’ he said.
