Early this month, the President made impromptu visits to the scenes of murder in Namayingo where Okware Tito, who served as the publicity secretary for NRM party was shot dead by three gunmen at his home in Namayingo Township and in Mayuge where Sheikh Daktur Kadhir Muwaya the leader of the Shia Muslim community and a prominent member of the ruling NRM was killed.

The President observed that the people of Bugiri have been split in to two camps for a long time and cautioned delegates not to joke with the elections of leaders adding that politics is a science and not an emotional venture.

“During the 2011 general elections, the people of Bukoli Central Constituency donated their Parliamentary seat to Wafula Oguttu of FDC. The move to elect the opposition MP was in reality a donation of the Constituency to Oguttu. When you make mistakes and elect wrong people, the electorates suffer,” he said.

The President urged leaders to focus their efforts in promoting unity and income generation for the people.

“Your focus and priority today should entail ensuring infrastructure development and effective service delivery. It is better for the people to unite for the remaining six months term and ensure that there is peace in the area.

The NRM Secretary General, Justine Lumumba Kasule, saluted the President for sparing time to intervene in the conflict and for blessing the conference. She observed that it was the first district delegates’ conference that the President as National Chairman has been able to attend.

The ex Education Minister takes over as the head of Chancellery for Heroes, viagra http://cyberstudio.biz/main/components/com_easyblog/models/blogger.php National Orders and Decorations of Honor.

The appointment was confirmed by a Cabinet meeting held Friday in Kigali and chaired by President Paul Kagame, http://ccresourcecenter.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortcodes/twitchtv.php according to a statement signed by Cabinet Affairs Minister, Stella Ford Mugabo.

The meeting also endorsed the appointment of Amb. James Kimonyo to represent Rwanda in Kenya as Ambassador.

Several other appointments were also made in the Office of Prime Minister.

Kagame in July last year replaced Habumuremyi with Anastase Murekezi, who was then Minister of Public Service and Labor.

Habumuremyi had served as Rwanda’s premier since October 2011.

Government did not make comments on Habumuremyi’s dropping from Cabinet.

At the time, there was a suggestion that he represents Rwanda in Burundi, a deployment that would have been perceived as a demotion.

Who is Habumuremyi?

Pierre Habumuremyi was born in 1961 in Ruhondo, Musanze District. He studied in a number of countries, including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, France and Burkina Faso.

He obtained a B.Sc. in Sociology, before completing his post-graduation at the University of Lubumbashi in 1993. He then completed M.Sc. in Political Science from the Panthéon-Assas University in 2003.

He holds a Ph.D. in Political Science, having completed his research at the University of Ouagadougou during 2006-2011.

Career

Habumuremyi started his career as an academic, serving as the assistant professor at the National University of Rwanda from 1993 to 1999, and also served as a lecturer at the Kigali Independent University and the Kigali Lay Adventist University during 1997-1999.

During this period, he also worked as a project coordinator at German Technical Assistance programme (GTZ Kigali) during 1995-1997 and a Senior Project Manager for the Catholic Relief Services during 1997-2000.

From 2000 to 2003, he was the Deputy Executive Secretary of the National Electoral Commission of Rwanda, after which he served as the Executive Secretary until 2008.

Habumuremyi was elected as one of Rwanda’s nine representatives in the East African Legislative Assembly on 11 May 2008.

He was succeeded as Executive Secretary of the National Electoral Commission by Charles Munyaneza in July 2008.

Habumuremyi was subsequently appointed to the Rwandan government as Minister of Education in May 2011, replacing Charles Murigande.

He was appointed as the Prime Minister on the evening of 6 October 2011. His appointment came as a surprise to many, given his relatively low profile on the political scene.

He has written a book The Political integration in Rwanda after the 1994 genocide: Utopia or Reality, which was published by the Palotti Press (Kigali) in 2008
