Resignations of Civil Servants, a sign of democracy

Editor, Rwandans and everyone planning to live and work here should by now know that Rwanda has a zero-tolerance attitude to corruption and its manifestations. Much as some would like to look for loopholes in a bid to get rich quick without working hard, they should not be left to succeed.

Editor,

Rwandans and everyone planning to live and work here should by now know that Rwanda has a zero-tolerance attitude to corruption and its manifestations. Much as some would like to look for loopholes in a bid to get rich quick without working hard, they should not be left to succeed.

When I read in your publication that 50% of elected officials had either resigned or had been arrested for various cases of embezzlement or abuse of office, I was dismayed. Dismayed by the sheer percentage and the fact that corruption was also mentioned as one of the reason.

I, however, am glad that government did not try to sweep the dirt under the carpet but came up with firm measures.It’s no wonder that the Bugesera Mayor also resigned due to a possible tendering scam.

The mere fact that public officials can resign so that investigations can be carried out is a great sign that Rwanda is a democratic state that respects her people.

However, I would suggest serious vetting of any official before they are given any office in order to cut down on the high turn over rates which may in the end affect effectiveness of these offices.
