New university is to be established in Kigali City and the Seventh Day Adventist Church will expand the Adventist University of Central Africa (AUCA) and also build its national headquarters in downtown Kigali.

Rwf5 billion is the estimated cost of both these projects.

The foundation stone at the site of the new faculty in Gishushu, Remera was laid by Prime Minister Dr Pierre Damien Habumuremyi and the President of the World Seventh Day Adventist Church (General Conference), Elder Ted C. Wilson.

Wilson added, "The establishment of this university is important and it's for all Rwandans, not only those who are Adventists. We hope that it will help advance God's work in technology.I have travelled around the world and have discovered that the Rwandan government has shown interest in development of our church, not only as evidenced by the presence of government officials here, but also in different church activities. We are grateful for the support."

He further added, "The government of Rwanda appreciates all the Adventist church programmes in the country, especially those in the education sector, health as well as preparing hearts of people to be good citizens."
