The Vice President of Zambia, Inonge Wina, has called on the world to learn from Rwanda’s experience and the Genocide against the Tutsi so that people may live in peace and harmony. Vice President Wina made the statement while writing in the guestbook after visiting the Kigali Genocide Memorial.

The Zambian leader was welcomed to the memorial by Aegis Trust Regional Director, Freddy Mutanguha, and guided through the memorial by guide Bonheur Pacifique. During the highly emotional visit, the Vice President expressed amazement at the remarkable strength of Rwandans after the Genocide and the speed with which the country has recovered.

“I am overwhelmed with emotion to witness such human atrocities against other humans. The world should learn from experiences like this one to know that human beings were made in the image of God and should live in peace and harmony.”

The Vice President was joined by the First Daughter of Zambia, Tasila Lungu, who expressed great interest in learning from the history of the Genocide, Rwanda’s recovery and the role of the role of the government in fostering a shared sense of national identity.

The visit concluded with a prayer at the burial place where more than 250,000 victims of the Genocide are laid to rest. The prayer was dedicated to the victims of the Genocide and to Rwanda’s ongoing recovery.
