Northern corridor renews tourism bid

Rwanda, Kenya, and Uganda, that are part of the East African Community and whose three members constitute the Northern Corridor Integration Projects initiative are reviewing their joint tourism marketing programs.

The focus will be on attracting more international leisure and business visitors; continuing to position the East African region as a single tourism destination, drawing on the depth and diversity of the attractions within the region and offering an estimated 141 million people as an attractive market for investment.

Joint tourism marketing brings together the government and private sector agencies in charge of tourism marketing including Rwanda Development Board’s Department of Tourism and Conservation, Kenya Tourism Board and Uganda Tourism Board under the Northern Corridor Integration Projects Initiative.

Speaking during a press briefing in Kigali after a joint consultative meeting, Ambassador Yamina Karitanyi, the Chief Tourism Officer at the Rwanda Development Boards said that the partner states collectively considered issues like security, infrastructure and ease of access as central to ensuring domestic, regional and international visitors’ confidence in their personal safety and comfort when touring East Africa.

“We have pledged to continuously and actively promote the Northern Corridor states as a joint destination. Security and ease of access and tourist confidence remain a top priority for this destination.

As you know, we introduced the East Africa Tourism Visa last year and this already has had an impact. In addition to organizing joint events at fairs, we have organized travel trade and travel media trips for the groups to familiarize them with the offering.” she said.

Fiona Ngesa, Assistant Regional Marketing Manager at the Kenya Tourism Board indicated that the region remains a very safe destination for every tourist and that Kenya was addressing the security situation.

“We want to reassure our domestic, regional and international visitors that they will be safe and secure. We are open for business & we therefore encourage all to come & sample the diversity of our tourism products.”

Edwin Muzahura, the Marketing and PR Manager at the Uganda Tourism Board said “We are in a unique region that has a lot to offer and at least regionally, we are taking advantage of it.

There has been an increase in inter regional trade and tourism as a result of use of the interstate passes, the East Africa Tourism Visa and the IDs. Northern Corridor Initiative

Ujya kwinjira mu mujyi wa Butare aturutse ahitwa mu Rwabuye abanza kunyura ku rugo ruri ku burebure butari butoya na gato, rushushanyijeho imitako nyarwanda y’ubwoko bwinshi kandi rugiye ruriho amacumu arutatse, mu mwanya w’ibyuma abandi bantu bakunze kwifashisha bubaka ingo zibereye ijisho.

Imitako iri ku rugo rukikije ingoro y’umurage y’i Huye ni iyo gutuma unyuze inyuma atekereza ku biri imbere-Umuliisa2

Urwo rugo ni urukikije ubutaka bw’ingoro y’umurage y’i Huye, yitwa Ingoro y’Amateka y’Imibereho y’Abanyarwanda bo Hambere, abanyehuye benshi bakunze kwita kuri mize (musée), rukaba rwubatswe vuba.

Uretse urugo, no mu kibuga cy’iyi ngoro haravuguruwe: udukuta turimo twari dusanzwe twubakishije amatafati ahiye twasizwe irangi tunashushanywaho imitako nyarwanda. Ngo uku kuvugurura kuzakomereza no mu zindi ngoro z’umurage w’u Rwanda, zishyirweho ibiziranga umuntu abonera kure atarazinjiramo byahereye.

Imitako yose ifite ibisobanuro

Umuyobozi w’Ingoro z’Umurage zo mu Rwanda avuga ko imitako ishushanyije ku rugo rukikije ingoro y’i Huye yakuwe mu yo Abanyarwanda bifashishaga mu gutaka. Ubu ngo bari gukora ubushakashatsi kuri iyo mitako, ku buryo mu bihe bizaza bazasohora igitabo kiyisobanura.

Amacumu atatse kuri uru rugo ngo ni ay’amoko y’amacumu yifashishwaga n’Abanyarwanda. Kugeza ubu ngo ubushakashati bwabashije kumenya amoko 43, nyamara ngo Abanyarwanda bagiraga amoko 120.

Ku bwinjiro bubiri bunini bw’iyi ngoro, hari ibihanga bibiri bibiri by’inka z’inyambo (zifite amahembe maremare ateze neza). Impamvu zabyo ngo ni ukugaragaza agaciro Abanyarwanda bahaga inka.

Ibyo bihanga ariko biri mu ibara rya zahabu. Si mu ibara ry’inka. Bwana Umuliisa avuga ko mu bugeni n’ubuhanzi, atari ngombwa ko ibintu byashushanyijwe bihabwa amabara asa n’ayo biba bifite iyo bitashushanyijwe. Ati « ubundi bishyirwa mu ibara rya zahabu no mu rindi ntazi uko bita mu kinyarwanda. »

Agaciro k’urugo  ntigakwiye kubarwa mu mafaranga

N’ubwo hari abajya bavuga ko urugo rukikije ingoro y’umurage y’i Huye (urukuta rushushanyijeho ahagana ku muhanda ndetse n’urugo rugizwe n’amatafari n’ibyuma by’amatubes) rwaba rwaratwaye akayabo ka miriyoni 500, Bwana Umuliisa avuga ko atari byo. Ngo bifashishije ibihumbi 300 byonyine.

Ati « nk’uko iyi ngoro ubwayo ntayibara mu mafaranga, n’uru rugo ni uko. Byose bifite icyo bivuga ku mateka y’Abanyarwanda… » Ngo bibereyeho kwigisha kandi uburezi nta wabuha agaciro mu mafaranga.

Na none ati « aya ni amateka, kandi amateka ntitwayabara mu mafaranga. N’ubwo abantu baza kubisura tubishyuza, ariko igishoro ntidukwiye kukibara. Ntabwo nshaka kunganyisha umuco n’amafaranga. »

Kuvugurura ntibyarangiye

Bwana Umuliisa kandi avuga ko uretse gukikiza urugo hegitari 20 z’isambu y’ingoro y’umurage y’i Huye, ibikorwa by’ivugurura bitazarangirira aho. Ati « muri uru rugo tuzahazana n’udusimba abantu bazajya basura. »

Nyabihu slam MINISPOC for unfulfilled promise to construct Mukamira Memorial site

Posted on 19 April 2015 by peter

For five years, the Ministry of Culture and sports (MINISPOC) promised Rwf65 Million to Nyabihu District for construction of Mukamira Genocide Memorial Site but trials have been on a regular failure without clarification.

Despite numerous struggles to get the ministry to release the promised funds, Nyabihu is still waiting in vain a reason they made the final attempt to remind the ministry of the promise made and get the fund to finish the construction of the memorial site.

Nyabihu slam MINISPOC for unfulfilled promise to construct Mukamira Memorial site

The 1st Phase of Mukamira Memorial site was completed; the second construction phase is being awaited.

“When Joseph Habineza was the Minister in MINISPOC and had joined us in a genocide memorial event, he had  promised to give us the money to complete the construction of Mukamira Memorial Site but since then, the promise has not been realized,” recounts Anastase Juru, the coordinator of IBUKA in Nyabihu district.

After finishing in renovation, painting, fencing and tiling among other things one part of Mukamira Memorial Site with the support of local people and Nyabihu district, they are waiting for the Local Government Ministry to fulfill its promise and have the 2nd part of Mukamira Memorial Site be constructed.

“The first phase of Mukamira Memorial site renovation had cost Rwf70 Million and we are waiting for Rwf65 Million from MINISPOC to finish the 2nd phase” explains Juru.

The 2nd part of Mukamira Memorial Site will include construction of a museum house, a room and office, the tiled part where to lay wreaths of flowers during commemoration, tiling the mass graves for 1994 genocide against Tutsis victims, toilets and the watchman’s house.

The 2nd phase construction project is ready to commence as soon as MINISPOC releases the Rwf65M.

The Ministry concerned has not been able to explain the cause of delaying funds despite several inquiries for the right answers.

Mukamira Memorial Site is situated in Kazuba village in Mukamira sector and has about 2074 1994 genocide victims laid to rest in the area.
