The 16th edition of Tour du Rwanda started this Sunday, February 19, as 94 riders from 19 clubs compete in a 740km race.

Officials, riders, influencers and spectators took time to convey the Gerayo Amahoro road safety message and instill the culture of safer road usage.

The Rwanda National Police RNP spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner of Police ACP Boniface Rutikanga, said: "The first day of the race in Kigali ended incident free, and we thank the general public and motorists in particular for their patience and responsiveness."

He added: "The second day of the race on Monday will use Muhanga-Ruhango-Nyanza-Huye-Nyaruguru (Kibeho) road. This axis will experience traffic interruption from 9a.m to 14:20p.m, but the road will open for traffic flow as riders pass. 

We wish to appeal to the residents in these districts to maintain the usual Rwandan spirit to facilitate a safe and incident free race. The message and the spirit is the same, Gerayo Amahoro."
