Several Non Governmental Organisations are said to be leaving Rwanda over the cut off of aid from western countries .
Afroamerican network reported yesterday that some of the NGOs are leaving Rwanda, while others appear to have relocated to other countries in the region.
It adds that a large number of NGOs closed by December 2012 while others have sent out layoff notices to their Rwandan employees. More to this ,the expatriates are being relocated to other African countries.
Sources in Rwanda claim that the diverse effects from the aid cuts have started to show and the devastation is expected if the international aid is not reestablished very soon.
Several Western Governments, including Great Britain, Sweden, Norway, the United States, The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany have cut their aid to Rwanda.
The measures were taken after the United Nations Security Council accused Rwandan Military and Government leaders of forming, arming, and supporting Congolese rebels, known as M23. M23 rebels have been accused of multiple war crimes and crimes against humanity. Their leader, General Bosco Ntaganda is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague.
