Rwanda : Gicumbi District Gets New Leadership

m Gicumbi district 300x201 Rwanda : Gicumbi district gets new leadership
Alexandre Mvuyekure: New Gicumbi Mayor
The Gicumbi District Council on Tuesday elected new leadership for the district following the sudden resignation of the two term Mayor Bonane Nyangenzi in June this year.
The Tuesday bye-elections saw Alexandre Mvuyekure elected the new Northern District Mayor to replace Nyangenzi who resigned citing personal reasons.
Muvuyekure was prior to Nyangezi’s resignation, the district’s Vice Mayor for Finance and Economic Development. He also served as acting Mayor after the resignation.
Mvuyekure is now deputized by Stanislas Kagenzi. Kagenzi is now the Vice mayor for Finance and Economic Development.
According to sources at Ministry of Local government, though Nyangezi resigned saying it was personal reasons, it emerged that he resigned for incompetence.
He resigned after he had been called to attend a provincial meeting, which inside sources say, could have led to his eventual resignation.
Nyangezi is said to have been under pressure over the district’s poor performance.
The district was ranked 27th out of 30 in last year’s performance contract assessment, a position the district had failed to move up from.
Nyangezi was the second mayor to resign this following Francois Niyotwagira, of Ngoma District who resigned in May.
Niyotwagira was also facing criticism over mismanagement of the district and grabbing land meant for returnees from Tanzania several years ago.
