"Rwanda: Kabgayi diocese, Hotel Splendid best taxpayers in Muhanga"
The headline caught my eye, as did the story from Rwanda’s daily paper, The News Times:
Pélagie Uwimbabazi, said timely clearance of tax dues is vital for national development as well as self reliance.Uwibabazi was officiating at the Taxpayer's Day held at Muhanga stadium last Friday.
Kabgayi Diocese and Hotel Splendid were awarded certificates of appreciation as outstanding taxpayers in the area.
"It is evident that the residents know the value of paying taxes. These taxes are important in supporting the national budget so as to afford good infrastructure, health and education facilities," Uwimbabazi said.
