#ShortNews: 700 churches closed in Rwanda

Rwanda has ordered 700 churches in Kigali Province to suspend activities from today (1 March) because of concerns over health and safety.

Professor Anastase Shyaka, Chief Executive Officer of the Rwanda Governance Board (RGB), which monitors public and private organisations, told reporters on 19 February: “Some churches conduct their worship services in shoddy and unclean structures – to the detriment of people’s health and safety. Cases of noise pollution have also been reported, while some operate without the required operation permits.”

Church representatives said the authorities were being too strict. “Those that failed to implement a few requirements should be reopened and allowed to work while fixing the problems raised,” said Bishop Innocent Nzeyimana, president of the Churches’ Forum in Nyarugenge district, as reported by AFP.

  1. Hello! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new
    iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward
    to all your posts! Keep up the excellent work!

  2. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

    • Hello there. Just pray and Holy Spirit will guide you to clear your mind and focus. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed Holy Week! 😀
