President Kagame today attended dinner hosted in celebration of Umubano Project 10 years anniversary, at Marriott Kigali Hotel, which also marked the conclusion of the project in Rwanda. The dinner was also attended by Andrew Mitchell and 80 Conservative Part supporters and volunteers.

In his speech, President Kagame recounted the story of friendship and partnership that has been written between Britain through Umubano Project and Rwanda.

“This might be the last night for Umubano Project but our friendship and partnership will endure for a long time. We’ve received support from many countries but our partnership with the United Kingdom has been very significant. The support we’ve received from the United Kingdom to help Rwandans rebuilt their lives has been enormous.”

President Kagame assured the Umubano project members that they had good friends in Rwandans who would stay with them even when the going got tough.

“We are single minded about our development and moving forward without offending anyone. We are united in our effort to get a better future for our children and grandchildren. It will take hard work, commitment, and sacrifices.”

A message from the United Kingdom Prime Minister, Theresa Mary May, commending the achievements of Umubano project and congratulating President Kagame upon his re-election was read.
