After visiting Rusumo boarder and extending working hours from 21 to 16 hours, Rusumo boarder residents and traders are excited for having electricity power.
Traders narrate that they could stop business at 6:00 pm because they had no light and only business people with generators could operate for long hours.
This comes after Rwanda and Tanzania signed simplified trade regime to make business easy for traders that operate from the both boarders.
Emmanuel Tubananabo, a trader at Rusumo boarder highlights that now they operate until night because of electricity power. He adds that it’s only now that he gets much profit from his business.
It’s been a month ever since electricity energy was extended to Rusumo boarder.
