A team of 25 Mobisol staff have visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to remember the victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi and learn more about the history of Rwanda.
Joseph Amani Tuyisenge, one of the Mobisol team, said that government should encourage more Rwandans to come to the memorial so that they can truly understand what happened in 1994 as many did not experience the Genocide first hand:
“Visiting a site like the Kigali Genocide Memorial can help everyone become aware of what happened as it contain all the facts and evidence of the Genocide against the Tutsi”
Thimothee Deo Kabagambe, who lost family members in the Genocide in former Kibungo, said that it was very hard to go through the memorial as it reminded him of the bad experience he went through with his family:
“Honestly it was not easy to pass through the History of the Genocide exhibition as I could directly remember what happened to me as well as my family members. We have a bad history but Rwandans, especially the youth, need to remember it so that Genocide does not happened again anywhere else in the world. Let us forgive but not forget.”
Raoul Ngendahayo, another member of the Mobisol team, said that while many young people participated in the Genocide against the Tutsi in 1994, young Rwandans today have so many opportunities to take constructive steps to rebuild their country:
“I think that over 60 percent of Rwandans are young people. Youth played a terrible role in the Genocide. For me, I think that young people today can play a big role in building up the country. Youth are energetic and they should use their energy to develop the nation.”
