Members of National Assembly of Zambia pay respects to victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi

Posted in Uncategorized

A delegation of parliamentarians from Zambia visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to pay tribute to victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi and learn about genocide history.

Their visit started by a guided tour of the memorial’s exhibits which tell Rwanda’s history before, during and after the genocide. Guided by Bonheur Pacifique, one of the guides and survivor of the genocide, these parliamentarians learnt about the causes and reality of the Genocide against the Tutsi as well as the steps Rwandans have taken to rebuild the country and unite.

The group also toured other parts of the exhibits like the one that gives summary on other Genocides happened around the world: Namibia, Cambodia and the Balkans as well as the Holocaust. They also visited the room dedicated to children killed in the Genocide against the Tutsi.

They ended their visit by laying wreaths on the burial place and observing a minute of silence to respect more than a million victims of the Genocide.

Patricia C Mwashingwele, one in the delegation, left a message in the memorial’s guest book:

“Thank you very much on behalf of the National Zambian Parliament Committee to relive the genocide. Never let it happen again anywhere”.

Members of the delegation praised the memorial for its incredible work in educating people about genocide prevention.
