Bill For Nuclear Treaty Meets Spirited Opposition In Parliament

Despite government assurances, opposition lawmakers in Parliament yesterday March 14 put up fierce resistance to plans for a nuclear treaty – some saying Rwanda is “too small” for  a nuclear plant.

Parliament was convening for the final session to vote on a nuclear energy bill brought by Infrastructure Minister Claver Gatete last year.

A parliamentary committee assigned to review the bill, recommended in the session yesterday – but with some reservations, that it was OK to put the bill to the House for a vote.
