The cabinet also selected Faith Rugema, as the new director general in charge of Bilateral Relations at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, while Diane Gitera and Col. Gerald Butera were also appointed as the director general in charge of Multilateral Relations, and Chief of State Protocol at the same ministry, respectively.
At a cabinet meeting also appointed Nikobisanzwe Claude to take over the post of permanent secretary at the ministry of Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation replacing Ambassador Jeanine Kambanda who has been moved to parliament as the new clerk.
Kambanda had previously served as Rwanda’s high commissioner to Singapore while Nikobisanzwe Claude served as a security advisor in various Rwandan embassies.
