In the night of the 4th.Dec.2011 around 8pm, heavy rain caused landslides in the road from Nyamagabe town to Kitabi sector going towards Rusizi district which blocked the road for almost 12hrs with no vehicles passing there.

The local authorities of Kitabi sector with the help of local population, police and the army woke up and tried to remove the landslide from the road and by 9am on Monday the 5th.Dec, that’s when small vehicles started to pass in this road.

The executive secretary of Kitabi sector, Zigirumugabe Emmanuel said that they did everything in their powers and they removed a small part. The remaining part needs involvement of other levels like the ministry of infrastructure.

The drivers who use this route say that this land slide delayed them and that it may lead to a lot of losses and damages if nothing is done to solve this problem as soon as possible.
