In partnership with the British High Commission in Rwanda, Ku Action pour le Développement du Peuple (ADEPE)a rights NGO organised a training workshop for sector legal representatives in Rubavu district.
According to the coordinator of ADEPE Gregoire Bicamumihigo, the training was organised to increase knowledge for the sector legal representatives to fully understand their value and their role in helping the people understand rights and laws that protect them.
“We hope that after the training the problem of people being ignorant about the laws that protect them will be over hence saving them a lot of time and resources wasted while moving about and down seeking for justice.
In his opening remarks, the District Joint Action Forum (DJAF) Emmanuel Senzoga reminded the participants that government programmes cannot be achieved if people don’t understand their rights and urged them to exploit the chance to the maximum.
“The return will be seen from the change in your communities after the training,” said Senzoga.
On behalf of the British High Commission, Samuel Paice said that they found it imperative to support this programme because true justice is that one that emanates from the people.
For Jean Marie, Sibomana a participant from Kanzenze Sector, he is sure that the knowledge they will receive from the training will help them to solve the problems they meet every day in their constituencies.
