He focused on the fact that judges should  be the exemplary Rwandans in all their  deeds and reprehend any one who keeps performing badly.

President Kagame reminded the assembly on important  juridical issues that deserve a quick treatment  during this coming term ,including the ones relating to  genocide ideology,sexual violence against  women and girls,human traffic,drug abuse ,drug dealers,national treasury smugglers and people who are accused to willingly destroy  infrastructures of national interests.

Prof Rugege Sam highlighted key achievements of the  Rwandan justice system  since 2004.

He said that all of these were achieved through joint efforts of everyone being part of the justice.

In 2oo8  judicial cases were around 40,239 cases ,meaning  12 cases per judge

During last year 78 428 cases  were dealt with while currently 83. 584 cases are under treatment meaning 27 cases each month.

Martin Ngoga, The General Persecutor,underlined the necessity to electronically keeping the records and ensure that the records of genocide perpetrators are kept for further investigation.

However the persecution still faces challenges relating to unwillingness of different countries that hide the perpetrators and do not send them to Rwanda or try them in their respective countries.
