To day Friday, 25th August 2017 at the Amahoro Stadium, Remera, Gasabo District, Kigali City University of Rwanda celebrates its 4th graduation ceremony since it was established in 2013.
In His remarks, Prime Minister Anastase Murekezi has requested 8252 graduates to be in a position of using their skills in bringing creativity, which leads to the attitude of being job creators instead of being job seekers.
