This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.
Dear Burera district,
I'm a journalist doing a follow up on the Rwandan students/ pupils who studied in Uganda before the travel restrictions on the border early this year.
I've learnt that local officials were tasked to do a list of those affected so they can be enrolled into local schools.
I would like to ask for the following information under Law no 04/2013 of 08/02/2013 relating to access to information.
1. What is the exact number of students/ pupils who were affected?
2. How many so far managed to secure places in local schools, and what is their level of study?
I look forward to hearing from you
Dear Burera District,
Reference is made to the access to information request sent weeks ago seeking details on the fate students affected by border travel restrictions.
I have so far not heard from you despite the law requiring you to process the request within three days. Now I would appreciate it if you could avail the details upon receiving this reminder.
