Members of the National Academy (Itorero ry’igihugu) have been called upon to become the catalyst and agents of change in the country’s quest for social and economic transformation.
The call was made yesterday during a one day workshop that brought together representatives of national cadres (Intore) from all districts of the country, organized by National academy.
The cadres will facilitate the forthcoming Solidarity camp for 61000 students who completed their secondary School last year and are about to enter universities.
“They need to be equipped with all necessary materials to help them deliver quality lessons to our youth who will be the leaders of tomorrow,” the President of National Academy, Boniface Rucagu said.
Participants were lectured on dangers of genocide ideology, the role of the youth in Nation liberation and patriotism and their role in ensuring national security.
The Executive Secretary of CNLG Jean de Dieu Mucyo asked Intore to play a crucial role in fighting against the genocide ideology.
“It is by your behavior and the exemplary lead as opinion leaders that the rest of citizens will be aspired to change from bad mentalities,” noted Mucyo.
The solidarity camps will no longer be convened in Northern Province as it used to but rather will happen at district levels and will receive all students who have completed secondary school.
