City of Kigali chief engineer Alphonse Nkurunziza has resigned.

He resigned Wednesday citing personal reasons.

His departure follows last month's resignation of Mayor Pascal Nyamulinda.

The former City of Kigali's executive secretary, Didier Sagashya, was dismissed from office in November last year over what was described as misconduct.
