DGPR Calls Upon the National Bank of Rwanda to Consider French while printing New Bank Notes

Five hundred Frw
Five hundred Frw

Kigali: The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda calls upon the Governor of the National Bank of Rwanda to consider the French language while printing all new bank notes.

It came to our notice that the National Bank of Rwanda printed new bills of 500 Frw only in Kinyarwanda and English languages yet before the old notes had the French language as well.

DGPR finds this act against the Rwandan Constitution, especially in Article 5, which states that the official languages of Rwanda are: Kinyarwanda, English and French.

DGPR calls upon the Governor of the National Bank of Rwanda to respect the constitution and consider printing new bank notes in all the three official languages as recognized by the Rwandan Constitution.
