Revealing the need for the rehabilitation,  the Permanent Secretary for the Office of the Prime Minister Pius Bigirimana said the first time he visited the centre, the place was in a sorry state and was not suitable for children that government is trying to correct.

“The multiple buildings on the complex had not been maintained and most had peeling paint, broken windows and no light bulbs. The toilets were overflowing and non-functioning,” he added.
