GICUMBI- Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) women committees drawn from all cells and sectors of Gicumbi District, on Saturday, celebrated their party’s achievements.
The party district women chairperson, Jolly Beatrice, said that the women representatives at all levels have contributed to stemming poverty and steer economic development among residents.
“RPF women committees have been at the forefront to support the government’s agriculture reform policies by sensitizing residents to grow Irish potatoes, beans and fruits, which are favourable to the district’s climate,” she said.
She hailed the women for spearheading gender equality, practicing family planning and sensitizing residents to join health insurance schemes in large numbers.
The district party chairman, Bonane Nyangezi, urged the women to garner more support for the party from the grass roots.
He also encouraged the women committees to champion the war on Gender Based Violence (GBV) and eradicate the consumption of illegal alcoholic drinks in their respective localities.
“RPF political manifesto calls for collective effort to ensure the well being of all Rwandans, through guaranteeing democracy, unity and development countrywide,” said Nyangezi.
The women RPF committees’ general assembly was concluded with a get together party.
Also present were RPF women legislators Pelagie Mukantganzwa, Devota Uwamariya, Marie Teresa Murikatete and Northern Province party vice chairman, Mathias Rupia.
