Kwibuka27: Youth have been challenged learn from the history of the Genocide against the Tutsi

During a ceremony for the 27th commemoration of the Genocide against the Tutsi in former Kibungo Prefecture, Governor of the Eastern Province CG Emmanuel Gasana said that the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi provides many lessons that the current youth should learn as future leaders of the country.

The event took place at the Kibungo genocide memorial which is the final resting place to more than 25,000 victims. There was also decent burial of nine bodies recovered last year.

The bodies include three bodies recovered from Bugera cell in Remera Sector where there was construction of a school while other bodies were recovered from different pieces of land.

Governor Gasana consoled those who lost theirs during the genocide against the Tutsi and said that it was due to bad politics nurtured by the then government which imparted divisions amongst Rwandans and destroyed their unity.

 He said that every Rwandan has the responsibility to ensure that genocide never happens again.

Aphrodice Nambaje, Mayor of Ngoma District consoled genocide survivors and pledged continued support.

He said that the history of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in the former Kibungo Prefecture, especially in Ngoma town shows that leaders at different levels took part in it.  

The Kibungo genocide memorial site is the final resting place to more than 25,000 victims killed in Sectors of Kibungo, Remera, Rurenge and Kazo.
