In the 21st century, ICT is no luxury

The government of Rwanda has not only been keen on putting up a policy on ICT, but has also gone ahead to implement it in the rural areas. This is an act well done because the biggest percentage of the population lies in the rural areas.

The programme of a credit scheme of a cellphone-per-household is also spot on. One can hardly believe that the cost of a mobile phone has been slashed to Frw13, 000.

This has even been made easier by the payment method where by one has to pay only Frw1, 000 per month in a period of 13 months.

The involvement of a telecommunication company- MTN and Rwanda Development Bank (BRD) has greatly helped in the implementation of the initiative.

With this at hand, the move will ensure a smooth run towards Vision 2020. Let all Rwandans embrace the initiative to ascertain to the fact that Rwanda is indeed the ICT hub in Africa.
