Rwanda’s Cabinet, permanent secretaries to give up April salaries over COVID-19

“Rwanda has ordered the Cabinet and permanent secretaries to forfeit their April salaries in solidarity with those affected by COVID-19. The government said it made the decision due to the ongoing fight against coronavirus which had put the whole country under a lockdown. This came three days after President Paul Kagame extended the lockdown in for 15 more days in a bid to curb further spread of the dreaded virus.”
