Trucks arrive with tons of earth which they dump in the wetland on both sides of road

For weeks, on a daily basis, heavy duty trucks have been heading to Gisozi suburb of Kigali to dump tons of earth there. It seems the person behind the project is so powerful that local officials don’t want to say anything.

The are is a wetland, located in Gisozi sector, Gasabo district. Trucks arrive and offload their cargo in that wetland.

Local residents openly express public dismay at the sight of the trucks. The problem, though, they cannot do anything about the trucks, apart from just lamenting.

Small local media sites have been reporting about the trucks. But officials are adamant to speak, instead sending journalists from one official to another.

Musasangohe Providence, the executive secretary of Gisozi sector repeatedly says the trucks are doing work for a contractor who has a permit from Gasabo district to dump the tons of earth in the Gisozi. She didn’t want to comment beyond that.

At the district, the District Executive Administrator Umwari Pauline was also not in the mood to speak to media when contacted. She instead refers journalists to person named as Phoebe, who also says the permit was granted to a one Karekezi Eric to dump the tons of earth in Munesero cell, which she says “is not a wetland”.

Question now is why are these local officials uncomfortable when speaking about the trucks?
