CNLG carries on sensitization of secondary school students on the fight against genocide and its ideology.

 In a bid to carry on the campaign on the prevention of genocide, fight against genocide ideology and denial of the Genocide against the Tutsi, the National Commission for the Fight against Genocide (CNLG) has organized lectures in 25 secondary schools across the county. They aim to urge students, teachers and head teachers to take part in prevention of genocide, the fight against genocide ideology and trivialization of the genocide against the Tutsi.

 It is in this regard that on 14th February 2017, Clever Gatabazi, Memory and Prevention officer at CNLG and Damien Niyonshuti, the CNLG coordinator in Nyaruguru and Nyamagabe districts gave lectures to students in GS St Marie Merci, GS St Paul Kibeho and Imanzi College in Nyaruguru District to urging them to take part in the fight against genocide and its ideology.

They expounded to students the role of commemorating the Genocide against the Tutsi, prevention and fight against genocide ideology, the preparation and execution of the Genocide against the Tutsi and gave them some examples of cases of genocide ideology exhibited by youth, especially during the commemoration period.

 After getting explanations on the questions they had asked, the students in both schools resolved to brush of revisionism nurtured by some of their parents and other people and inform authorities whenever necessary.

They also pledged to never conceal whoever exhibiting genocide ideology, and create clubs within their respective schools to fight against genocide ideology relying on the Ndi Umunyarwanda programme.
