President Paul Kagame has urged leaders to improve on citizen outreach, saying that development partners seem to have a better understanding of the local issues than some leaders. He was presiding over the dissolution of the outgoing Lower House, which also involved the signing of the 2018/19 Imihigo where local and central government leaders signed new performance contracts.
