This Sunday we are celebrating Easter. Meanwhile, yesterday was the beginning of the commemoration week dedicated to remembrance of the victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
It is time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and at the same time a somber mood will engulf the country as Rwandan’s of all walks and even foreigners, remember those who died during the genocide and recommit themselves to ensuring that what happened will never happen again.
We think that although we are mourning, it is also possible to be fashion conscious in the purple colours that are the hallmark of the mourning period in Rwanda. Martin Bishop talks to fashion experts and takes you through how to look your best in the colour purple during the period of commemorating the genocide.
Ingina Y’Igihanga reflects on the events of 1994, telling us why the crime of genocide can never be wished away. From the genocide against the Herero of current Namibia, to the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, Ingina give readers food for thought as we mark the 18th commemoration of the genocide.
Dr Rachna Pande gives us a rare glimpse into the medical and social dangers associated with teenage alcoholism. She advises parents, during the holiday break for students, to be on the look out lest their kids take to alcoholism.
Today we are also introducing Eating Out, a column that asses several eating places around town and gives you a verdict you will not find elsewhere. We are sure, you will find information you can use in the Eating Out column by Martin Bishop. He starts by Visiting Africa Bite in Kimihurura.
You will also fall off your seat as you read the hilarious work of your usual humorous writers, Diaspoman and The Villager. Have a Nice Easter Weekend and a peaceful Commemoration Week.
