Even in prisons, they are serving the country

Editor, This is very interesting, especially that the Ministry of Education does not view this practice as “destructive” to learners since they “should be resting only” during holidays like we are instructed it is sometimes the case.

Editor,

This is very interesting, especially that the Ministry of Education does not view this practice as “destructive” to learners since they “should be resting only” during holidays like we are instructed it is sometimes the case.

Kudos to the provincial officials who granted permission and the ministry officials for letting the coaching go on.

For pragmatic Rwanda, the experience at Musanze Prison can demystify community mindset about prison life and prisoners. I entirely support the noble activities that benefit all who are involved.

That’s great. Even though they are jailed, still the country needs their contribution. TSome of them  are very qualified and with competitive skills. I believe with no doubt that their contribution will benefit students a lot. I’m very sure they are good at their subjects.
