Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame has assured his people that the country will return to normalcy if the right response is directed towards the fight against the novel Coronavirus.

He said that though the country is on hold, there was huge hope for the return to normal life soon.

“For now, the life of the country has to be on hold but there is hope that things will return to normal. And that hope coming true is founded on you and how you do your work,” observed H.E Paul Kagame during an impromptu visit to COVID-19 Command Post on this Easter Sunday.

The President said that success in ending the COVID-19 pandemic through the prevention of its spread will highly depend on how effective the 400-member COVID-19 Command Post does fulfill its mandate.   

COVID-19 Command Post located at Kigali Conference and Exhibition Village (KCEV), brings together close to 400 professionals from across sectors charged with the coordination of activities aimed at ending the spread of COVID-19.

Kagame has assured Rwandans that his government will continue to do whatever it takes to support the professionals achieve their mandate in order for Rwandans to return to normal lives.

“As government we will keep doing everything we can to support you, so Rwandans can return to their normal lives,” said Kagame “I know that you are doing this out of selflessness, love of your country and with professionalism. All of this makes me grateful to each of you”.

The President wished the professionals a happy Easter and said, “There will be a time to celebrate and thank you properly when this is all over”
