The Chief Regional Commissioner, Mr. Alain Ntwari says that in this month dedicated to scouts and guides, good deeds are being carried out. He cited the bamboo planting activity on the Kanyosha River, at the same time as that carried out on the Nyabagere River.
Mr. Ntwari then asked the scouts and guides present in the day’s activities to be good examples wherever they are, so that the neighborhood wants their children to also become members of the scout movement.
