Rwandan civil society responds to draft Code of Ethics


Rwandan civil society organizations (CSOs) have welcomed the yet-to-be-finalized presidential decree on public servants’ code of ethics, saying it has exhibited a high level of good governance. Jean Dela Providence Harelimana, the chairman of the CSOs in Muhanga District, said that with civil society contributing its views on the law, it shows the government’s willingness to involve them in decisions on issues of governance and development. ICNL has been providing technical assistance to both civil society and the Government of Rwanda through the MCC’s Civil Society Strengthening Program.
