“I today paid personal respect to remember (Kwibuka) all those innocents who lost lives during the heinous 1994 Genocide in Rwanda,” said Rwakakamba.

“For a moment, I was enveloped in deed deep pain. That pain will forever remain deeply ingrained in my heart. Looking at how Rwandans have emerged stronger from ashes of genocide I decided to salute and celebrate their Spirit. Rwanda is steadily moving forward.”

Rwanda has been carrying out memorial activities to remember and honour genocide victims.

Kwibuka means ‘remember’ in Kinyarwanda, Rwanda’s language. It describes the annual commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

More than one million Rwandans died in the hundred days of the genocide. It was one of human history’s darkest times.

Twenty years later, Rwanda continues to ask the world to unite to remember the lives that were lost and come together to support the survivors of the genocide, and to ensure that such an atrocity can never happen again – in Rwanda or elsewhere.
