The Chamber of Deputies summons two Ministers

|   Chamber Of Deputies

On April 29, 2021, the virtual sitting of the Chamber of Deputies summoned the Minister of Trade and Industry and the Minister of Public Service and Labour to respectively provide oral explanations on the issues found in the assessment of Uruganda Iwacu (Community Processing Centres) and the management of the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

Tabling before the plenary, the Chairperson of PAC, Hon Muhakwa Valens said that Uruganda Iwacu program (CPCs) did not produce the expected results considering the investment of 4 billion Rwandan francs. Thus, some factories have been leased on heavy loss due to low productivity.

As far as IPPIS is concerned, Hon. Muhakwa said that the project was of no real benefit to the country even if it is being replaced by SmartHR which is also not promising because of the lack of storage of data.

Moreover, the Plenary sitting of the Chamber of Deputies called on Mininfra and Minecofin to resolve the long-standing problems of road construction and to identify the appropriate expropriation arrears in less than 6 months.  The decision comes after the findings of PAC showing that some citizens had been evicted from their properties without being compensated.
