Rwanda suspends nearly 200 companies from doing business
with government over breach of contracts and falsification

KIGALI Rwanda (Xinhua) -- At least 197 Rwandan companies have been suspended recently from doing business with the Rwandan government over breach of contracts and falsification during the bidding process of government tenders, Rwanda Public Procurement Authority said on Monday.

These companies will no longer be eligible to do business with the government during the period of suspension ranging between six months to five years, Augustus Seminega, director general of the procurement agency told the state radio, Radio Rwanda.

All procuring entities will not award contracts to the suspended companies, invite bids from them or enter into any business with them during their suspension, he said.

The blacklisted companies, which can challenge the decision in courts, will be posted on the portal of the agency, he added.

A report of Office of the Auditor General of Rwanda on government expenditure during the 2016/2017 fiscal year shows that contractors had delayed or abandoned a total of 109 projects worth over 235 million U.S. dollars.

Rwanda distributes laptops to government sponsored students on credit

KIGALI Rwanda (Xinhua) -- Rwandan Ministry of Education and Ministry of ICT and Innovation on Monday launched distribution of laptops to government sponsored students at the University of Rwanda and Rwanda Polytechnic on credit.

The distribution of laptops is in line with the Rwandan government’s vision of enhancing teaching and learning about using ICT (information and communications technology) as a driving tool to achieve development, Minister of Education Eugene Mutimura said at the launch in Kigali, capital city of Rwanda.

Some 14,000 locally made laptops are expected to be distributed to students who are studying on government scholarships, said Mutimura.

However, the distribution of laptops will continue until they reach self-sponsored students and those in private universities as well as teachers in primary and secondary schools benefit, said the minister.

The payment of the laptops worth 589 U.S. dollars each will be paid after the beneficiaries graduate and start working, according to the ministry.
