(p.130) 7 Rwanda
Telecommunications in Africa

Alphonse Kabayiza

Oxford University Press

Rwanda's political instability indirectly caused the destruction of its telecommunications system. By the time the country was relatively prepared to recover from the damages, repair of the networks was the least priority of the government as it was more concerned with consolidating its constituents. In this regard, study of telecommunications as a determinant of economic development requires attention especially as stability returns. The main goals of Rwanda's policies for the optimization of its communication technology are as follows: to devise a recruitment and training scheme for highly qualified technical people who can assure the proper usage and maintenance of equipments; to conduct organizational restructuring and to establish demarcations between managerial and operational positions; to bring in high quality and huge capacities of service provisions to be able to penetrate national and international networks; and to conquer the predicaments of the fund allocation and management.

Keywords:   Rwanda, political instability, telecommunications system, government, economic progress, policies, restructuration
