Dear Mr Ivan Mugisha,

We just spoke on the phone, and I acknowledge receipt of your request for import and export statistics of gold, entailed in your email below. I would also like to inform you that your request is misdirected, because the Rwanda Mines, Petroleum & Gas Board is not the institution responsible for monitoring exports and imports into the country, and neither is it the custodian of national statistics. I therefore advise you to direct your request to the relevant institutions of the government of Rwanda.

With best regards.

Francis Gatare
CEO,
Rwanda Mines, Petroleum & Gas Board.

Dear Ivan,

Having read Francis Gatare's response above, please let me know if you want me to redirect this access to information request to the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda or if you know the institution responsible for monitoring exports and imports into the country

Technically - in line with the 2013 Access to information law - Mr Gatare should have made efforts to help you by passing on this request to the correct authority on your behalf, but our system allows requests to be forwarded to other authorities so let me know if I should do that.

Murakoze,

Stephen Abbott Pugh
Team Sobanukirwa

Hey Steve, thanks a lot for your interest.
Yes, please go ahead and request for the information from NISR. It is quite interesting that the Mining Board does not have statistics relevant to its own field of operation.
