I WOULD like to comment on the article ‘Gishwati, where Interahamwe militiamen set dogs on Tutsis’ (The New Times, March 6).
May the survivors transcend their anguish and feel an ever-growing sense of peace and hope in what the future has in store for them. That is our most profound wish.
Concurrently, may legal systems around the world continue to systematically track down and bring to justice extremists and ideologues responsible for the committed atrocities (during the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi). That, naturally, is our second most profound wish. And obviously, one has to go with the other.
The focus is to build a future full of hope and possibilities, but of course a future built on solid grounds, on the firm belief that justice has been rendered.
For the victims who were not only killed, but experienced an unspeakable death as shown in the piece; for the survivors whose minds can rest fully, only when they see the horrifying wrongs they were subjected to, ‘righted’ to the extent possible; and for the Rwandan people as a whole.
