Nyamagabe: students urged to fight against genocide ideology
In a bid to pursue its campaign to fight against genocide, genocide ideology and trivialization of the genocide against the Tutsi, the national Commission for the Fight against Genocide (CNLG) organizes public lectures in different schools to urge students and the whole school management to take part in the fight against genocide and its ideology.
It is in this regard that on 8thmarch 2017, Damien Niyonshuti, the coordinator of CNLG in Nyamagabe and Nyaruguru districts organized such lectures in GS Gikongoro St Kizito and GS Kigeme A secondary schools in Nyamagabe District.
He explained to them the importance of commemorating the Genocide against the Tutsi and how to fight against its ideology. He also explained how it was prepared and executed. He gave them some examples of genocide ideology exhibited by some of the youth especially during the commemoration period. He urged them to take part in changing their colleagues who didn’t have the chance to attend to such lectures.
The students pledged to be the first to give information about anyone who exhibits acts, words or ideas comprising genocidal or revisionist ideology. The students pledged to create anti-genocide ideology clubs within their schools and brush off revisionism and hatred by perpetuating the Ndi Umunyarwanda programme.
At least970 students and 30 teachers in GS Gikongoro St Kizito followed the lectures while 837 students and 27 teachers in GS Kigeme A attended to the lectures.
