Kigali City Vice Mayor in charge of Finance and Economic development said that the master plane will be implemented through cooperation between the public sector and the private sector. He dispelled fears that land owners who won’t be able to fulfill the requirements of the plan will have their land grabbed and given to those who can afford.
“We won’t grab peoples land. The master plan is designed in a way that those who will not want to be part of the commercial district will be expropriated properly and allocated other plots to settle” the Vice Mayor said.
The exhibition will be held for five day at Nyarugenge district headquarters.
