Rwanda Governance Board (RGB) on Wednesday received ten Namibian Members of parliament for a study tour on Rwandan governance.
The legislators are in the country for a two days tour to “understand the politics of this country and governance innovations that are taking place here,”
“more particularly to understand where and how Rwanda is mainstreaming gender equality in its government structures and systems,” according to CEO, Prof. Anastase Shyaka
Hon.Hilma Ndinelago Nicanor, the head of the delegation, said they preferred Rwanda because of “the innovations and good practices that made it a good example in the world.”
Ndinelago cited a big number of women representation in the decision making positions in the Rwandan parliament as something they can replicate through policy making in Namibia to improve on the existing ones.
“We want to learn from each other’s best practices and experiences, which we can take back home and improve the way we are.” she said.
She stressed that the experiences and good practices learnt will help them to know where to put more strength to take Namibians towards a better life.
“Where we were doing better, we can still improve on as a country, particularly about citizen’s issues such as citizen score card and governance score card,”she added.
Prof. Shyaka, told Taarifa that the MPs are also interested in “knowing how RGB monitors and evaluates delivery of public institutions as well as the strategic plan that is used to implement and follow up on home grown solutions.”
The members of parliament are also set to visit different institutions to witness different innovations that the country has implemented to enhance the quality and of institutional performance.
