A group of over 50 delegates of the a two day international gender conference led by the Deputy Minister for Education of Ghana, Tuesday visited Kigali Genocide Memorial centre and condemned the genocidal regime for promoting racism, divisionism and hatred among Rwandans which resulted into the 1994 Rwandan Genocide against the Tutsi.

Speaking after touring the centre, Elizabeth Amoah-Tetteh said, “This tragedy of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi is a great remorse and loss to all Africans, but I also attribute it to the poor governance and administration of the former regime of President Juvenal Habyarimana, which segregated people depending on their races” Amoah-Tetteh said.

She said that basing on what she has observed in Rwanda, the country had made tremendous progress in rebuilding itself.

The minister thanked President Paul for having played a major role in stopping the Genocide and reconciling the Rwandans.

Member of Parliament, Nura Nikuze, told The New Times that they decided to visit the memorial centre so that participants who attended the conference from other countries witness what took place in Rwanda.
