KIGALI - THE Liberal Party’s (PL) Presidential hopeful, Senator Prosper Higiro, yesterday took his campaign bid to the Western Province when he held a colourful rally in Nyundo, Rubavu District.
Hundreds of cheerful supporters thronged Nyundo Parish grounds, chanting “Tora ubushake, tora Ubushobozi, tora Higiro (vote for will and ability, vote for Higiro)”
The candidate promised to ensure modern agriculture was promoted once elected.
“We are telling Rubavu residents to vote for our party…we shall help them to access improved seeds to boost agriculture. Our government will also ensure improved service delivery,” he said.
He also promised to put in place a clear and precise policy of maintaining infrastructure and reform the education system to produce job creators rather than job seekers.
Party chairman, Protais Mitali, said they had high hopes of winning the August polls as long as nothing interrupts their campaigns.
“We have visited more than 12 districts, and everywhere we reach there is a positive response from the people because of our manifesto, candidate and rich experience,” Mitali added.
Mean while Higiro dismissed rumours that he was about to quit the race
In an exclusive interview with The New Times, at Nyundo Parish, Higiro said that claims by some media outlets that his party would eventually hand their votes to Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF), candidate, Paul Kagame, were baseless.
“We have our manifesto, and what we’re doing is to sell it across all districts …we’re not just playing and about to give up, we mean business,” Higiro said.
