From 7th April 2018, Rwandans across the country and abroad commemorate the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda in 1994, where they meet dialogues held at village level and follow lectures prepared by the National Commission for the Fight against Tutsi (CNLG). After the lectures, they discuss about the given lectures for deeper understanding.

 

In a bid to commemorate by deepening understanding on the history of the Genocide against the Tutsi, some Rwandans choose to visit memorial sites of the Genocide against the Tutsi to deepen understanding on its preparation and execution.

 

It is this perspective that on 8th April 2018, at least 65 students from the University of Rwanda, College of Science and Technology (UR-CST) visited Nyarubuye genocide memorial site in Kirehe District.

 

After they got explanations on the history of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, particularly in Nyarubuye, they visited different parts of the memorial and listened to testimonies of Mukandayambaje who survived to the Genocide at Nyarubuye.

 

Again on this day, 285 people from Mukoni and Intwali villages in Nyarugunga Sector, Kicukiro District, accompanied by the Executive Secretary of this Sector, visited Ntarama Genocide memorial where they got explanations on the history of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Bugesera, particularly in Ntarama.  

 

Apart from those who visited Ntarama and Nyarubuye genocide memorials, the youth from SOS Kigali also visited Bisesero Genocide memorial site in Karongi District where they got explanations on the history of the Genocide against the Tutsi in the former prefecture of Kibuye, especially in Bisesero.
