Information was received from Kigali by none other than the deputy CEO of the Rwanda Development Board for Tourism and Conservation herself, as well as the director general of ORTPN, the then Office for Tourism and National Parks, that after 7 years at the helm of the organization and the public figurehead for the revival and renewal of tourism to the “Land of the Thousand Hills,” Rosette Chantal Rugamba is stepping down from her position. She is leaving behind a cabinet full of trophies and prizes awarded to Rwanda Tourism during her reign at the helm, and the latest global recognition came only a few days ago when ITB management awarded, for the fourth time running, the “Best African Exhibitor” award to Rwanda.

Rosette, well known to this correspondent from her years in Kampala before she moved back to Rwanda, will be joining the private sector in April this year after a short break, undoubtedly much deserved to recharge her batteries, having run nonstop in her previous capacities.

Rosette was confident in her message to this correspondent that passing on the baton to a soon-to-be-announced new public face of Rwanda’s tourism sector will be easy, having achieved in recent years a re-orientation of the tourism sector, the creation a new tourism policy and tourism law, and the formulation of a 10-year strategic master plan for future developments and product diversification of the sector.

Rosette will be missed by the many people around the world she interacted with over the past 7 years, but as she will remain in the tourism sector, she will undoubtedly come across many of those sooner rather than later again, albeit in a different capacity. Rwanda News
