2010 Alumna, Marie Josée Kankera and 2011 Alumna, Teddy Gacinya were sworn in yesterday to Rwanda’s Parliamentary House. Teddy, a newly appointed Senator and Marie Josée, one of the newly appointed members of Parliament, took their oath of office Wednesday and then were welcomed to the House by President Paul Kagame.
President Kagame noted that while there are challenges along the way, the most important thing is for the people to have the will and dedication to tackle them and even work harder for further progress. The President then urged legislators to work hand-in-hand with their colleagues to fulfil the demands of the people, noting that as lawmakers their job is to work with others to serve the interests of the Rwandan people.
Way to Pay It Forward Teddy and Marie Josée! There are no limits to how far the women of PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS can go!
