    All govt employees to learn English

    Anastase Murekezi.	
cabinet meeting that convened in Village Urugwiro Thursday requested
that the Ministry of Labor and Public Service teach English to all
non-anglophone public service workers. The government wants to
see all public servants speaking English so they can communicate with
their counterparts in the region, a source in the ministry told Sunday
times on Friday. The development comes after Rwanda became a full member of East African Community (EAC) and applied for Commonwealth membership. According
to the Minister of Public Service, Anastase Murekezi, English training
programmes will commence as early as possible to equip workers with the
predominant global language. He explained during a telephone
interview on Saturday that public services workers need to know English
for a better understanding of various documentations in EAC, COMESA and
around the world.   “We shall begin with our ministry before
the programme is applied to other ministries. It will be facilitated by
government,” Murekezi said. The State Minister for Industry and
Trade Promotion, Vincent Karega, acknowledged the development saying
that across the world, exchanges in trade, education, communication,
and information technology are all done in English. “French
speaking only in France, some parts of West Africa, parts of Canada and
Switzerland,” he said during a telephone interview on Friday. “English has merged as a backbone for growth and development not only in the region but around the globe,” Karega stressed. Ends
