To link Oxford Business School with SFB

KIGALI - The British Conservative Party will continue giving budget support to Rwanda if elected into government next year, the British Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, and Member of Parliament for Sutton Coldfield, Andrew Mitchell, has said.

He made the revelation during an interview with The Sunday Times, on Friday.  Over 100 members of the British Conservative Party had been in the country for two weeks, working on a number of projects in the health, education, legal, tourism and private sectors.

“If a conservative government were elected next year, a conservative government would continue with budget support to Rwanda as a good way of promoting development.”
He revealed that Rwanda has “good governance in terms of doing a good job in ensuring that development money is well spent.”

He said that they have developed good and deep relationships in Rwanda.“After three years here, we have made friends.”

Mitchell said that they recently published their policy proposals for international development, saying that most of their understanding of international development comes from their experience with project Umubano in Rwanda.

“We have been trying to understand and learn about conflict resolution and when a conflict ends, how you try to bind people together.”

The UK politician also told The Sunday Times that they are in the process of linking Oxford University Business School with the School of Finance and Banking (SFB).

At the same time, the Conservatives plan to put in place a partnership between “a very well known UK Law firm” and the Nyanza School of law. This project he said will also be extended to the law faculty at the National

Ends
