Not Less Than 714 Churches Shutdown In Rwanda By The Govt. - See Reasons

Not less than 714 churches in different parts of Rwanda’s Kigali over the last one week have been shut down for failure to meet minimum standards outlined by Rwandans Government.

The churches were found to lack basic infrastructure, hygiene, safety standards and had issues related to their legal status. The initiative is being carried out by respective urban district authorities in partnership with the Rwanda Governance Board, New Times of Rwanda reports.

The Head of Political Parties and Civil Society Department at the Rwanda Governance Board, Justus Kangwagye, stated that places of worship are required to meet basic requirements in terms of safety, hygiene, infrastructure, and legality which those affected were found to be lacking. He added that the places of worship affected by this bill were asked to halt operations until they meet the expected standards.

In his words;

“Worshiping should be done in an organised way and meet minimum standards. Exercising your freedom of worship should not encroach on other people’s rights. They have been asked to halt operations until they meet the requirements. "For instance, if the infrastructure is deemed likely to cause danger to those worshipping, it is obvious that it fails to meet the requirements,” he explained.

Others problems included lack of parking lots which led to members’ parking by the roadsides and causing gridlock. Other churches which were closed operated from tents. " Churches that are hosted in tents were also asked to review their premises before they can continue their operations. As for hygiene and sanitation, you cannot have a gathering where there is no water for washing hands, no toilets among other issues,” he said.

Kangwagye explained that setting up a church requires a temporary certificate which expires after 12 months.

I hope Nigeria will follow suit soon because we have a lot of mushroom churches and branches in Nigeria.

I'm of the opinion that churches should be sound proof.

You know what I suffered in school with a megaphone mounted outside and waking me up by shouting alakuba.

That religion adherents are known to be violent therefore they can't be ordered to remove the noise or shut down

They shut down assemblies which contravened noise pollution laws. I don't know the type of God you worship which allows you to make noise and disturb the sensibilities of others.

Good development.

I'm a Christian but I detest all kind of noise pollution in the name of religion.

If I ever find myself in the corridor of power, I'll ban all sort of noise pollution emanating from churches and mosques. It's most annoying that some of them even disturb one's sleep at night or very early in the morning.

It's sheer hypocrisy and insanity on the part of both churches and mosques. I think government should even begin to fine or tax them heavily for such pollution in manner that deters others. I think this could probably raise tge IGR of most states.
