MTI enables Strategy for Rwanda’s Utilities Regulator

Share Article

The Regulatory Board of Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA) has approved the 5 Year Strategic Plan that was researched and formulated in consultation with MTI Consulting. The Strategic Plan was based on MTI’s 8S ® Model.

“Over the last 6 months, the Senior Management of RURA worked very closely with MTI’s Team of Strategy and Regulatory Sector Consultants, resulting in an effective 5 Year Strategic Plan.” said Dr. Ernest Nsabimana, the Director General of RURA.

“The Regulatory Board, Director General and Senior Management of RURA has contributed and demonstrated a high level of strategizing and sector insights into this highly interactive and inclusive strategic planning process” said CEO of MTI Consulting – Hilmy Cader, who led this project on behalf of MTI Consulting

RURA is a multi-sectoral regulator mandated to regulate Telecommunications, ICT, Postal services, Renewable and Non-renewable Energy, Water, Sanitation, Transportation and Nuclear & Radiation Protection. The Authority plays a pivotal role between the policy maker, licensed service providers and consumers. The Authority reports to the Office of the Prime Minister and it coordinates with line ministries responsible for each regulated sector in executing its functions.

“Rwanda, considered to be the ‘Tech Hub’ of Africa and tipped to be the ‘Singapore’ of Africa,  is the 49th country in which MTI has carried out an assignment, since MTI’s inception in 1997.  Africa is undoubtedly the growth continent of the 21st century.  Over the last 3 years we have been focusing on regional opportunities across East Africa – given the access to these markets from Asia and the Gulf. Given Kigali’s strategic location we plan to access the key markets of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia from Kigali” said Hilmy Cader, CEO of MTI Consulting

Coming out of a devastating genocide in 1994, Rwanda’s socio-economic transformation is considered a ‘case study’ for the developing world. In 2019, Rwanda was the world’s 3rd fastest growing economy, ranked 38th (and 2nd in Africa) for Ease of Doing Business and 1st for Government Transparency in Africa.  Interestingly, Rwanda has the highest female participation (61%) in Parliament in the world and it ranked 9th in the Global Gender Gap index 2020 (1st in Africa).

MTI is an internationally-networked boutique management consultancy – having carried out 680 projects across 49 countries – in the last 25 years. MTI’s practices cover Strategy, Operations, Corporate Finance and Digital & Analytics.
