According to her, the Second Parliament inherited 24 Bills and passed 349 laws, of which 312 were published in the national gazette while 37 were awaiting publication and 13 were pending when its mandate ended. Only 24 Bills were sent back to the Executive.
Her term was the best in Rwandan history: She saw through 96 per cent of her work, perhaps the reason she decided to take a less active role in the current House.
In September 2013, President Kagame nominated Richard Muhumuza, a prosecutor, as the new Prosecutor-General, replacing Martin Ngoga who still had two and a half years on his second mandate.
At the time of his replacement, Mr Ngoga was seen as one of the country’s most influential figures, having pushed Rwanda’s legal interests in the international arena and particularly taking on countries harbouring genocide suspects.
During his tenure, he convinced the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) to transfer the remaining cases to Rwanda as well as different countries to extradite genocide fugitives.
Mr Ngoga’s influence in the Judiciary was visible, particularly for the reforms he made in the prosecution authority.
It had been hoped that he would be rewarded with an even bigger post. However, Mr Ngoga is not known to hold any government or party post, five months on.
Lt-Gen Caesar Kayizari
The general was dropped as the Rwanda Defence Forces (RDF) Chief of Staff in July, 2012, and replaced with Maj-Gen Frank Mushyo Kamanzi.
It wasn’t until March last year when the football-loving military man was named ambassador at Rwanda’s new mission in Ankara, Turkey.
Lt-Gen Kayizari has since disappeared from the public radar.
Rwanda and Turkey have however taken further their diplomatic and economic ties, with the jolly general running things behind the scenes.
In 2009, Ms Museminari was dropped as the Foreign Affairs minister after a two-year stint in the hot seat.
She was replaced by Louise Mushikiwabo, who was then at the helm of the now-defunct Ministry of Information.
The soft-spoken Ms Museminari had served during a period when Rwanda was going through a volatile diplomatic spell in the region and beyond.
Her replacement with the tough-talking Ms Mushikiwabo was a clear signal that she had fallen short of steering the country through the murky waters of diplomacy, where communication and authority in decision-making play a key role.
Ms Museminari would later be appointed the UNAids Representative to the African Union (AU) and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), where she is still serves.
Dr Albert Butare /Linda Bihire
In a December 2009 reshuffle, Dr Albert Butare was dropped as Minister of State for Energy at the Ministry of Infrastructure alongside his engineer boss Linda Bihire.
Speaking in a syndicated radio interview, President Kagame then said such changes in government were necessary when one was not getting good results.
Apparently, the duo had failed to deliver in the energy and infrastructure docket, a priority for the nation to achieve its development ambitions.
The two learned fellows settled back to their old professions with Dr Butare completing his PhD and set up a consultancy firm, the Africa Energy Service Group (AESG), as well as venture in real estate.
Ms Bihire returned to London, from where she had been outsourced. According to her profile on the Internet, she has since settled back in Croydon, where she is a construction consultant.
