Posted on 20 October 2015 by peter

Barasaba ko umusozi wa Makwaza washyirwa mu hantu ndangamateka

Abaturiye umusozi wa Makwaza uherereye mu murenge wa Mukindo, barasaba ko hakongera hakagirwa ahantu nyaburanga bityo n’amateka yaho ntasibangane.

Uyu musozi wa Makwaza uri mu mpinga z’ikibaya cy’akanyaru mu murenge wa Mukindo mu karere ka Gisagara ahazwi kuva kera ku izina ry’Umukindo wa Makwaza.

Barasaba ko umusozi wa Makwaza washyirwa mu hantu ndangamateka

Abazi amateka y’Umukindo wa Makwaza bavuga ko hataramiye abami batandukanye ndetse ko hanakorerwaga imihango ya cyami inyuranye.

Amateka ya Makwaza ni maremare nk’uko abahabyirukiye bayabayemo babivuga, kandi bakavuga ko nabo bagendaga babwirwa amateka ya mbere batarabaho.

Ngizerugo Frederic w’imyaka 65 avuga ko ba sekuru bajyaga bababwira amateka y’uyu musozi aho bavuga ko hari umugabo wari warigize ikigomeke wo mu gihugu cy’Uburundi witwaga Nyaruzi rwa Haramanga wari uhatuye, nyuma akaza kwicwa n’umwami w’i Rwanda Ruganzu II Ndori amutsinze mu kabande yagiye guhiga.

Gusa uyu mugabo avuga ko nabo ari amateka basanze kandi babwiwe batazi niba ari ukuri, cyane ko uyu mwami Ndori wahawe izina rya Ruganzu wa II akaba yari umuhungu wa Ndahiro II Cyamatare, yimye ingoma mu mwaka wa 1510 byumvikana aya mateka ari aya kera cyane.

Umusaza Karoli yambabariye w’imyaka 84 uzwi ku izina rya Kajuga, utuye mu murenge wa Mukindo nawe avuga ko uyu musozi awuziho amateka menshi ndetse we akanahamya ko yawutaramiyeho igihe kinini kuko yawuhatswe mu myaka ya 1945.

Asobanura amateka y’uyu musozi wa makwaza avuga ko ku ngoma y’umwami Ndahiro II Cyamatare ahasaga mu mwaka wa 1922 ariho uyu musozi watangiye gutaramirwaho.

Avuga ko hakorerwaga imihango itandukanye irimo kubikira, no gukangura umwami ndetse n’igihe adahari iyo mihango igakorwa, hakaba abakobwa batoranyijwe baririmbaga mu bitaramo ndetse bakaba aho banakora isuku, bakanoza ibyansi.

Ati “Nahatswe kuri uyu musozi nsimbuye data nawe wari warahahatswe kuva ndi muto cyane, narahataramiye, ariko ibyo byose byaje kugenda bihinduka ingoma ya cyami ivuyeho”

Uyu musaza Kajuga ariko avuga ko kandi ibi bitahagaze burundu igihe ingoma ya cyami yavagaho, kuko ngo imitako yari ihari ahubwo yongerewe ku butegetsi bwa Kayibanda ndetse na Habyarimana yajya kubutegetsi hakarimbishwa kurushaho. Ibi byatumaga hahora ba mukerarugendo baturutse ahantu hatandukanye.

Ati “Kayibanda na Habyarimana baraharimbishije cyane nyuma y’igihe cy’abami ndetse hari akabari kiyakiriramo ba mukerarugendo. Hari imitako myinshi cyane iranga igihe cya kera irimo ibisaswa by’umwami, ibyansi, ibiseke ndetse hakanaturirwa imihigo”

Si uyu musaza Kajuga gusa uvuga ubwiza Makwaza yari ifite kuko na bamwe mu bahatembereye mbere bavuga ko koko ubwiza hari hafite buramutse buhasubijwe byagira akamaro.

Nsaguye Thomas avuga ko mbere ya Jenoside yakorewe abatutsi mu Rwanda mu 1994 yize mu cyahoze ari urwunge rw’amashuri rwitiriwe Mutagatifu Yuvenari ubu ruzwi ku izina ry’urwunge rw’amashuri rwitiriwe Mutagatifu Filipo Neli, akaba yarajyaga atemberera mu Mukindo wa Makwaza n’inshutinze.

Nsaguye avuga ko hari hafite uburanga buhebuje, kuba hari ku musozi hejuru hakurya witegeye imisozi yo mu gihugu cy’Uburundi, hakaba inzu z’umwami n’ibindi byagaragazaga amateka ya cyami, byose bikaba byari binogeye amaso kandi bigakurura ba mukerarugendo.

Ati “Nk’urubyiruko icyo gihe twishimiraga kuhasohokera kuko hari heza kuhareba kandi hari n’amateka n’abari bahatuye bakishimira kukuganirira ibyaho”

Abaturiye umusozi wa Makwaza bifuza ko haba ahantu Ndangamateka

Icyifuzo cy’uyu musaza Kajuga uvuga amateka ya makwaza n’abandi baturage baturiye uyu musozi ngo ni uko hasubizwa agaciro ndetse hagakorwa neza hakigisha amateka abakiri bato kugirango atazibagirana burundu.

Ikindi aba baturage bavuga ni uko haramutse hasubiye kuba ahantu nyaburanga hakajya hasurwa, byateza imbere uyu murenge n’akarere muri rusange.

Nshimiyimana Jean Claude ati “Aha hantu hasubiye kuba nyaburanga, twakwiga amateka menshi kandi byanateza imbere aka gace kuko hajya hagenda cyane”

Umusaza Kajuga we avuga ko binashobotse abantu bakuru nawe arimo, bazi ibyahaberaga mbere babyutsa umuco wa kera, bakajya bahataramira, bakahigishiriza abakiri bato imbyino, ibyivugo, amazina y’inka n’ibindi, maze umuco barazwe nabo bakajya bawuraga abandi babyiruka.

Ubu busabe bw’abaturage bo mu murenge wa Mukindo bumaze imyaka irenga 3.

Ubuyobozi bw’akarere ka Gisagara kenshi bwabajijwe ibijyanye n’umusozi wa Makwaza, bugasubizwa ko  nta cyemezi gihamye cyari bwafatwe kandi ko akarere kagomba kubanza kugeza ibikorwa remezo nk’amashanyarazi muri uyu murenge nyuma bukazita kuri iki kibazo bufatanyije n’ababishinzwe.

Kuri ubu uyu murenge wa Mukindo nturageramo amazi meza n’amashanyarazi, ariko nk’uko bitangazwa n’umuyobozi w’aka karere ka Gisagara Lèandre Karekezi muri uyu mwaka w’ingengo y’imari bitegenyijwe ko hazagezwa amazi n’amashanyarazi.

Hari ibisabwa kugirango ahantu habe Nyaburanga (Ndangamateka)

Kugirango ahantu hitwe Nyaburanga cyangwa ndangamateka, bite icyo bigenderwaho.

Mulisa Alphonse umuyobozi w’ingoro ndangamurage z’u Rwanda avuga ko kugirango ahantu habe nyaburanga cyangwa ndangamateka hari byinshi bikurikizwa birimo kuba koko hafite amateka, gutunganywa ku buryo hashobora kugendererwa n’ibindi.

Uyu muyobozi avuga ko umusozi wa Makwaza wasabwe kenshi n’abaturage ngo habe ndangamateka kandi ko ubuyobozi butabyirengagije, gusa ko ibikorwa bikiri byinshi kandi bigenda bikorwa mu gihugu hose, hatanirengagijwe ko ari ibikorwa biba bisaba ubushobozi bw’amafaranga.

Ati “Ibikorwa nk’iki cyo gutunganya umusozi wa Makwaza bikorwa henshi mu gihugu, ubu tumaze kugira site zitunganyije zigera kuri 500 mu gihugu hose, n’aha rero ntitwahirengagije turahateganya ubushobozi nibuboneka”

Kuri ubu ku musozi wa makwaza ibyarangaga amateka byose bisa n’aho byahashize, hasigaye igice gito cy’inzu y’umwami yasenyutse, ibyari bihari byose bikaba byarasahuwe igihe cya Jenoside yo muri mata 1994, nyuma y’aho ntiharongera gukorwa.

Rwanda | Rwanda RDB to permit

Rwanda: RDB to permit people own wild animal zoos

Posted on 23 August 2012 by peter

Rwanda | Rwanda RDB to permitAfter fencing the Akagera National Park, for the first time in Rwanda the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) will accept for the people who want to keep wild animals and to bring animals that were rare in Rwandan national parks.

The fact that Akagera National Park is small compared to the animals that live in it and what to feed them caused many problems in the past like animals escaping from the park and destroying people’s crops and even killing people,  Télésphore Ngoga who is in charge of National Parks in RDB.

Ngoga went on to say that this problem is being fixed by fencing this national park and they will remain with only the animals that they can take care of and which will not destroy people’s crops or kill them.

Ngoga said that after fencing this national park, local people might get the authority to own some of the wild animals that used to be in this park. “If a person can pay to watch impala in the park, why can’t a person have a zoo of his/her own and see them instead of finding them in the park? Like in other countries where a person can have their parks with animals like antelopes, buffaloes, crocodiles and they are used to make a living.

Apart from giving local people authority to own animals, many other animal species will be brought to Rwanda like lions, rhinoceros and others. For this to be possible, people have to first accept and show willingness to rear wild animals and the government to make laws that will guide the process.

Rwanda ranks among African countries with potential ground for tourism growth

Rwanda : Rwanda ranks among African countries with potential ground for tourism growth

Posted on 17 August 2012 by peter

Rwanda ranks among African countries with potential ground for tourism growth

A Research firm-Euromonitor International has identified some African countries that are likely to see strong growth in tourism, and could possibly be lucrative destinations for investors in the tourism industry.

These countries are Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Tanzania. According to Euromonitor, Rwanda is emerging as a well-known destination on the world tourism map recording a 3% increase of inbound tourists in 2011 to reach 723,000.

In 2011, the majority of tourist arrivals came from other African countries. Arrivals from the African continent were led by the Democratic Republic of Congo(16.5%), followed by Uganda (13.5%) and Tanzania (7.4%). Rwanda’s core overseas markets include the US (3.6%), Belgium (2%) and the UK (1.5%).

According to Euromonitor, Rwanda is also ready to implement the East African Community single tourist visa, which will allow tourists to travel freely across the region.

Tourism is the largest foreign exchange earner with $251 million earned in 2011. The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) has revealed that for the first semester of 2012, Tourism revenues have increased by 11% compared to the same period last year in 2011. The tourism sector is estimated to have generated US $128.3m compared to US$115.6m generated in the same period last year.

One of the country’s most popular attractions is its mountain gorillas – which has attracted many tourists in the country and RDB has promoted the activity through the annual Gorilla Naming Ceremony (commonly known as Kwita Izina).

Rwanda is, however, trying to diversify its tourism offering, for example through the 150 metre high canopy walkway, the Congo Nile Trail and bird watching routes.

Rwanda : Visiting gorillas in Rwanda is safe as tourism booms

Posted on 05 August 2012 by peter

The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) has revealed that for the first semester of 2012, Tourism revenues have increased by 11% compared to the same period last year in 2011. The tourism sector is estimated to have generated US $128.3m compared to US$115.6m generated in the same period last year.

In addition, RDB wishes to inform and reassure tourists and the business community that it is safe to travel to the Volcanoes National Park in Northern Rwanda despite the on-going conflict in the neighbouring country of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Rica Rwigamba, Head of Tourism and Conservation at RDB said that Rwanda’s tourism progress is attributed to peace and security: “Visitor safety is guaranteed as usual. We would like to reassure visitors to Rwanda that it is business as usual here and that it is extremely safe and secure to travel to and within the country. In addition to the all-in-one experience in Rwanda from diverse wildlife in the national parks, to the magnificent scenery, amazing climate and the rare mountain gorillas; peace and security continues to be a magnetic pool for visitors in Rwanda.”

Rwanda also hosted an estimate of 493,744 visitors in the first semester 2012 corresponding to an increase of 22% compared to 2011 in the same period and recorded a remarkable 16% increase in leisure visitors as well as an 8% increase in business visitors.

In terms of investment promotion, in the first semester only (January to June), the Tourism sector has so far registered projects worth US$ 184.1m. These projects are expected to create 1,328 jobs.

Rica Rwigamba, Head of Tourism and Conservation at RDB said that “There was a noticeable increase in revenues, visits and value of registered tourism investments as well as projected jobs created in the first semester. We believe that if we continue to achieve as reflected by the results in the first semester, we will indeed surpass our targets and more importantly, this will drive growth and generate wealth for Rwandans.”

Rwanda’s  tourism and conservation efforts  are also reflected in the commitment to the contribution towards the communities’ welfare under the revenue sharing framework, RDB recently increased the price of gorilla permits to 750$ which will consequently also increase the contribution to the communities as well as the activities in conservation. Indeed, Rwanda places conservation and community development at the core of the sustainable tourism agenda.

In addition to the current room capacity of more than 6500 today, the government is encouraging more investment in accommodation facilities, hotels and restaurants in order to match the ever increasing visitors’ number.

Tourism is the largest foreign exchange earner with $251 million earned in 2011.

A delegation from government, private sector and travel agencies were in Germany over the weekend to attend the ITB Berlin travel show in Berlin which took place March 07-11.

The Rwandan delegation was composed of officials from the Rwanda Development Board (RDB), Private Sector Federation (PSF) as well as Tour and Travel Agencies, according to RDB, which led the group.

“We showcased the diversity of tourism products with special focus on Nyungwe Forest attractions and Bird watching!” said RDB in Twitter message on March 12.

The East African region as a tourism destination was celebrated at the world’s leading travel trade show. There were dancers from Kenya, drummers from Burundi and the famous Rwandan Intore entertained participants from all over the world.

“A true East African spirit reigned on the Stand!” said RDB.

The Rwandan delegation also hosted global business leaders. For example, the CEO of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker, met with the Rwandan delegation at ITB prior to the launch of their flight to Kigali, Rwanda on March 21, 2012.
