Parliamentarian candidates of Liberal Party (PL) have promised to advocate for efficient capacity of workers under the tourism sector in Rwanda in order to boost foreign incomes.
The message was delivered by PL President Donatille Mukabalisa to Kayonza District’s citizens on August 26, 2018 at Nyamirama football ground during an ongoing electoral campaign rallies of Members of Parliament (MPs) who are seeking for votes.
She said this while admiring the development of Akagera National Park that hosts beautiful wildlife and promised to increase its development.
As it gains seats in the parliament, Mukabalisa said that Liberal party will strive to advocate for capacity of workers who are employed in tourism sector so that they offer good service to tourists who brings the money to the country.
