Eastern province Police official, CSP Alexandre Muhirwa, has said that youth drug abusers are a big problem to their families and the country at large.
This April2012, CSP Alexandre Muhirwa while talking to Mukarange sector youth on dangers of drug use, expressed:
"Anybody who wakes up to doing drugs can never think of developing his country, but instead brings trouble to himself that might lead to death."
Muhirwa reveals that most youth in rehabilitation centres were caught doing drugs. In this case they become a problem to their families that have to bring them food every day and a problem to the nation as well.
"The amount of money the government spends on youth in Iwawa rehabilitation centre could be used in other developmental projects," laments CSP Muhirwa.
CSP Muhirwa calls upon youth to choose wisely and participate in fighting against drug abuse, in preparing for their bright future and that of their country Rwanda.
World Health Organization shows that almost 200 million people use drugs all over the world and the number is increasing to an extent that it might double if something is not done, Muhirwa adds.
The government of Rwanda has succeeded in lawfully dealing with drug abuse and distribution, where by drug dealers that buy drugs from neighboring countries are constantly arrested.
