Jean Paul Tugirimana is in charge of dissemination of information at Red Cross Rwanda. He is always busy with work including briefing the press and making efforts to get more volunteers.
In that respect, he says that although he dedicates part of the weekend to work, it is always a perfect one;
I start my weekend on Friday evening after sports at the work place. I straight away get home to check on my family. I watch new movies to let the evening pass.
On Saturday, I wake-up depending on how early I went to bed. However, if I up by 8am, I listen to the news roundup on Radio Rwanda.
I then plan to attend wedding ceremonies if I happen to be invited or else I check on friends.
Sunday is when it’s all fun; of course I have breakfast at home but have lunch out with the family. We normally enjoy it at one place in town with a brand name Oxygen just near Okapi hotel.
I never miss Ugali and potatoes, to at least make a difference from the usual meals I have during week days.
For the entertainment circles, it’s the live band at any joint of interest basically decided by my wife.
However, I make sure that I get to bed a bit early to prepare for Monday.
That makes my weekend perfect.
