History of the sub sector
The first post office opened its doors on 18th September 1922 in Kigali. At the time the Post Office Administration was linked to that of the Belgian Congo and the Headquarters was in Leopoldville, capital city of the Belgian Congo now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The situation remained the same until the period of independence within the country which ushered in a Ministry of Information, Posts and Telecommunications on 26th October 1961.
