Rwamagana is a city in the east of Rwanda. The city is located about 50 kilometers east of Kigali and is the capital of the Eastern Province. Rwamagana has about 50,000 inhabitants. Rwamanga is on the main transit route from Kigali to Tanzania, across which most of the freight traffic from Tanzania passes. As part of the last renewal of the road, a bypass was built around Rwamagana, so that the goods and transit traffic no longer drives through the city center.
