Prime Minister Dr Edouard Ngirente in conversation with Chamber of Deputies Speaker Donatile Mukabalisa (C) and Senate President Bernard Makuza, at a previous session in Parliament. The Prime Minister’s administrative oversight is increasing

The Chamber of Deputies this Friday unanimously adopted the bill which radically changes the operations of the City of Kigali.

However, one key proposal to make district administrators appointed by the President of the Republic has been dropped.

The Chronicles reported about this article in the bill last week with the story “New Kigali City Draft Law Will Make ‘District Administrators’ More Powerful Than The Mayor“.

Article 36 of the draft bill, Paragraph four stated: “Members of the Executive Organ are appointed by a Presidential Order for a term of five (5) years renewable”.

It is this that has been changed in the passed bill, and here is how the management system of the capital city will operate, if the President assents to the law without any more changes.

Each of the three districts making up Kigali – Nyarugenge, Kicukiro and Gasabo – will be managed by ‘Executive Organ’ of two officials: District Executive Administrator and a Deputy.

These officials will be appointed by the Prime Minister as par the amended version of the bill which parliament passed.

Article 41 paragraph 2 reads: “Members of the Executive Organ are appointed by a Prime Minister’s order.”
Paragraph 4 adds: “A Prime Minister’s Order determines salaries and fringe benefits for members of the Executive Organ of the District.”

With these changes, it means the District Executive Administrators will be not wield the political clout they would have had if the original proposals in the bill brought by Local Government Minister Prof Shyaka had sailed through.

There are many other changes in the endorsed bill. From here it will go to the Senate, which is unlikely to make any more changes. It will then be sent to the Head of State for assent.

Green Party leader Dr Frank Habineza, who voted YES, told The Chronicles after the session in Parliament today: “We had many observations and some were dealt with”.

The Chronicles is still reviewing the law and will follow up with substantive analysis of the changes.
