Kigali – Just two days out of cabinet, President Paul Kagame has again appointed ex-Defense Minister General Marcel Gatsinzi to head a newly created ministry.

According to a statement signed by Prime Minister Bernard Makuza, Gen. Gatsinzi, who had been serving on the defense portfolio since 2002, is now Minister for Refugees and Disaster Preparedness.

Gen. Gatsinzi was Saturday evening removed from the powerful defense ministry, and replaced by Gen. James Kabarebe – who was the Chief of Defense Staff.

we are happy to have this new ministry in place. we hope it will fill the gap that would occur in case disaster appears. we really need to be proactive rather than reactive. we can also bring our support as GIS emmanuel student at nur/in urban and regional planning/year4-geography
