  • Traders in the main market of Musanze district in Rwanda

    RWANDA, 2014/02/11 Traders in the major market of Musanze district in the Northern Province are relocating to a nearby taxi park to pave way for renovation works that will turn the market into a modern structure worth Rwf6 billion. Raymond Niyonzima, who leads KODUKUMU cooperative which comprises additional than 100 business owners in Musanze, said the co-op has commissioned the market's construction for a three-year period. The new market will have four floors for its front building and three floors in the backside, hosting 1,000 stands for different businesses. "Its construction will kick off in March. We have discussed with district officials and business owners in the old market and we agreed they will have relocated by February 20," Niyonzima said.
