The Chief Executive of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), Mr Mohammed Adjei Sowah, has lauded the government and people of Rwanda for their effort in rebuilding their country into a model in Africa after the 1994 genocide.
“We want to applaud you for the steps you took to transform your country after the genocide, which has made the city of Kigali a model in Africa and one of the cleanest cities in Africa,” he said.
Mr Sowah made the statement at a meeting held at the Kigali City Hall between a Ghanaian delegation and authorities of the city of Kigali, led by its Mayor, Mr Prudence Rubingisa, last Wednesday.
Mr Sowah, the co-lead of a 15-member delegation from the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and the Africa Environmental Sanitation Consult, the research and consultancy arm of waste management giant, Zoomlion, was also led by its Managing Director, Dr Abena Asomaning Antwi.
The delegation is in Kigali to understudy the waste management system of the city, including the collection and processing of waste at the landfill site and to establish the sister city relationship between Accra and Kigali.
