After visiting those sites, Mr. Nitunga said he was satisfied with the progress of the work. According to him, the deadline for the work, which extends from 2018 to 2022, granted to the company Sino hydro, will undoubtedly be respected as this company had guaranteed.

The communication officer within the said company, Lin Bigirimana, specified that this hydroelectric dam will be operational from next May, adding that all the work necessary to stabilize the bank of the Ruzibazi river, Bugarama side where is built the dam, will be completed before project closure.
