Kigali Genocide Memorial welcomed Rwanda’s Minister of Youth, Rosemary Mbabazi together with other staff at the Ministry who came to pay respects to the more than one million victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi.

This visit was part of a joint commemoration between the Ministry of Youth and The Ministry of Sports and Culture and its affiliated agencies (Rwanda Academy of Language and Culture; Institute of National Museums; National Commission for fight against genocide; Chancellery for heroes and National orders and decorations of honors and Rwanda Archive and Library Services Authority).

The visit began with a viewing of a short film detailing the Memorial’s history and its significance to the survivors of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi then a laying of wreaths on the burial place where more than 250.000 victims of the genocide against the Tutsi are laid to rest.

Following this, the delegation was guided through the exhibits in the museum, learning the entire story of the genocide, from the colonial roots of ethnic divisions, through to the horrors of the killings.

Finally, they had the opportunity to learn about the efforts by Rwandans of all ages and from all walks of life to rebuild and reconcile after the Genocide and the work that the Aegis Trust is doing to promote unity in Rwandan Society.

To conclude this visit Ms. Mbabazi left a message in the memorial guest book. She wrote:

“Never again. The future is bright due to our good leadership”
