President Paul Kagame has received his counterpart of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo who came to Rwanda for one-day working visit.
Both heads of state have met at La Cornice border in Rubavu district. Tshisekedi arrived in Rwanda around 1p.m coming from Goma town.
After welcome by a guard of honour, President Kagame drove Tshisekedi to visit infrastructures damaged by earthquakes that followed Nyiragongo volcanic eruption on 22nd May 2021.
The eruption saw Congolese nationals fleeing to Rwanda where they were warmly welcomed until they returned home.
Apart from displaced citizens, tremors occasioned by the natural disaster destroyed different infrastructures including roads, health facilities and residents’ houses.
As of today, Rubavu district and partners including Rwanda Transport Development Agency (RTDA) and the Ministry of Infrastructure among others are raising funds to renovate damaged roads.
Kagame and his counterpart are also expected to hold bilateral talks at Serena Hotel in Rubavu.
