As the 2012-13 fiscal year winds up, officials from Gasabo District, last week, met with different partners to evaluate the achievements for the year and strategise how to achieve what remains ahead of time.
District mayor Willy Ndizeye said the meeting was to assess the implementation of performance contracts.
“As we approach the end of the fiscal year, we have to make sure that we are performing well and meeting our expectations and together with our partners, there is need to know where to put more emphasis so as to reach our targets,” he said.
Gasabo, last year, ranked second in the implementation of performance contracts, which Ndizeye said “brought them shame”.
The mayor said measures have been taken to ensure the district excels this closing fiscal year.
Projects worth more than Rwf11 billion were implemented in various sectors, including infrastructure, health, education, security and social welfare, among others.
The district constructed roads and homes for Genocide survivors, upgraded the integrated production craft centre (now operational in Gastata) and built schools.
The vice mayor in charge of economic affairs, Jean Claude Munara, warned stakeholders whose projects are still lagging, saying they have to do their best as the financial issues have been cleared.
The pending projects, according to the officials, include the Kimironko Market rehabilitation as well as Gikomero and Rutunga sectors, which must be electrified, among others.
However, implementers expressed concerns that they are mostly offered facilities when the deadline is approaching and advised that work should be done early instead of rushing at the eleventh hour.
