RGB to register NGOs
The newly created Rwanda Governance Board (RGB) has taken over the responsibility to register religious and non-profit making organisations from the Ministry of Justice.
This is part of efforts geared at enhancing quality service delivery and good governance in the country.
The files about the registration and operations of non-profit and religious organisations in the country were handed over on Friday to Prof Anastase Shyaka, CEO, RGB, by Tharcisse Karugarama, the Minister of Justice.
“We are handing over the files that were under our care so that Rwanda Governance Board can continue to deliver the services that the Ministry was delivering in terms of registration of religious and non-profit making organisations,” said Karugarama.
The Board was established last year through the merger of National Decentralisation Implementation Secretariat and the Rwanda Governance Advisory Council.
It was created to promote the principles of good governance and decentralisation, monitor the practices of good governance in public and private institutions, and conduct research related to governance to achieve good service delivery, sustainable development and prosperity.
The mandate of the board is derived from Rwanda’s commitment towards ensuring “good governance and a capable state” as explicitly indicated in Vision 2020.
“The Board was set up as a one stop centre of governance issues.
The services pertaining to the management of NGOs have been transferred to RGB to enhance the quality of service delivery,” said Shyaka.
