Editor,

Last week, media reports indicated that the Auditor General uncovered a scam involving the construction of substandard houses for genocide survivors. Some survivors are yet to get shelter despite funds having been released towards the construction of their houses.

This is a loss on part of genocide survivors and the government.

I strongly believe the government tries its best to help genocide survivors and other vulnerable persons, but some people hold it back.

Instead of implementing government programs, they are hell bent on satisfying their egos. It is high time such people resigned in public interest.

On the other hand, local leaders should efficiently implement public interest programs, as government representatives. The state should only intervene where such leaders have failed.
