The deal was yesterday signed during the Africa Hotel Investment Forum that is taking place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.


The 76-room resort will be constructed in Rusizi District, Western Province, and completed in 2016 under the brand “Protea Kivu Marina Resort Hotel.”


“The $22 million investment project is an excellent private-public partnership model involving seven districts that make up the Western Province as well as the Diocese of Rusizi as shareholders. It is also a landmark project for Kivu Belt region,” Yamina Karitanyi, the head of tourism and conservation at Rwanda Development Board said.
