I write to congratulate the government of Rwanda for selling its shares in Bralirwa and for giving the general public a chance to buy shares. On the television yesterday, the Minister of Finance; Rwangombwa said that the shares were being auctioned to the public because originally, the shares were being bought by a strategic investor, something the government wanted to change.
The shares, according to the Minister were reduced from 170Rfw per share to 130Rfw to give the locals an opportunity to buy as many shares as possible. I am happy to know that right now, I can walk into the stockbroker’s office and buy myself some shares.
By giving us a chance to buy into these shares, the government is giving us an opportunity to spread our investment wings and develop our nation along the way. The government is also instilling in us the culture of spending wisely, by putting our money into the future since shares make profits after years.
I would like to encourage fellow Rwandans to seize this chance and invest in shares for the future of their children.
Let’s not be left behind by the rest of the world since stock exchange is the way to invest and earn big in due time.
