Gerayo Amahoro road safety campaign was on Sunday, June 4, extended to flocks in Anglican, Zion Temple and Restoration and ADEPR churches across the country.

Rwanda National Police (RNP) educated  christians on traffic rules and regulations to prevent fatalities mainly caused by reckless human behaviours and to further influence positive attitude and values to make road safety a culture.

The RNP spokesperson, Commissioner of Police (CP) John Bosco Kabera said that conducting Gerayo Amahoro campaign in churches will further impact on road users' behaviour.

“Religions have very many followers and partnering with them in educating road users will go along way to influence good behaviors that considers road safety a choice and culture. About 80 percent of road crashes are caused by human behaviors like speeding, use of phone, reckless overtaking or crossing the road, which this campaign is trying to address," CP Kabera said.

At Zion Temple Nyagatare Parish, Pastor Bernard Munanira commended the Police for choosing churches to make christians safe.

“We appreciate police’s efforts in educating people how to behave to be safe on the road. We are happy to contribute to Gerayo Amahoro campaign by disseminating road safety messages to our congregation and our communities to farther the cause and contribute to the safety of the people," Pastor Munanira said.
