Sosthene Musonera made this Access to Information request to Ministry of Local Government

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Ministry of Local Government does not have the information requested.

Dear National Bank of Rwanda,

I would like to ask for the following information under Law no 04/2013 of 08/02/2013 relating to access to information.
Referring to the fact that many Vulnerable people mainly those working whith VUP (Vision Umurenge Program), have a problem of not getting their money at time, and the government pays them through Umurenge Sacco. I would like to ask you questions on this issue after getting information saying that some Sacco use that money to make business with some commercial Banks in Rwanda.

1. According to your responsibilities, what causes that delay?
2. I want you to give me (on Email) the transactions made by Umurenge Sacco to Bank of Kigali, BPR (Atlasmara); from 1 January 2019 to 31 October 2019.

Yours faithfully,

Sosthene Musonera

Sent request to Ministry of Local Government again.

Sent request to Ministry of Local Government again, using a new contact address.

Dear MAKUMI, Doreen,

I did thank you for your response, but I think LODA is not the one in charge of Bank transactions and is not in charge of Umurenge Sacco thus I need operations Umurenge Sacco made with other commercial banks, because my key information that I want is to check whether It is true that Umurenge Sacco uses money reserved to VUP in Its business with other commercial banks.
So would you mind if you can reconsider my demand?

Yours sincerely,

Sosthene Musonera

MAKUMI, Doreen,
