Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority(RURA) has rewarded a new motorbike worth 1.5 Million to Donat Ndayiramije, a taxi-motorist for protecting the money that belonged to his passenger who was involved in accident and rushed to Hospital.
The accident occurred on 26th July2017 when the moto was hit by a bus which left the passenger unconscious. To ensure that the money is well protected, Ndayiramije decided to declare it to the National police which in return handed it over to the victim’s family.
Speaking to the media, the Head of Media Regulation and Consumer Affairs Department at RURA, commended the integrity and professionalism displayed by Donat Ndayiramije
" This is part of good service to customer and great honor for them as well as protecting them and their belongings; that’s what we always call upon transport operators said” Anthony Kulamba
Present during the event that was preceded by a press briefing were RURA Senior Management and staff, the head of Traffic police CIP Emmanuel Kabanda and Motorcyclists as well some of the head of motorcyclist’s cooperatives.
“Other countries have been coming to learn from Rwanda best practices and we as the citizen can’t despise them and act contrary to good values of our country that leaders encourage," Ndayiramije told journalists while indicating the reason behind his humanitarian activity just after receiving the new motor.
"I’m really grateful for RURA since the reward I have been given is a great support and I will make it productive," Ndayiramije
