Zula Karuhimbi deserves better

Editor, I thank you for this inspiring story, “Karuhimbi pretended to be a witchdoctor and saved Tutsi” (The New Times, April 29).

Editor,

I thank you for this inspiring story, “Karuhimbi pretended to be a witchdoctor and saved Tutsi” (The New Times, April 29).

However, it also makes me wonder: I appreciate all the efforts towards honouring Zula Karuhimbi, but the fact that nothing has been done to improve her welfare is inexplicable. Honestly, it’s a shame for this great woman to be still living in a rundown house that looks like one of the demolished hatched ones (nyakatsi). Can’t something be done?

This is amazing and the woman is a real hero. Why can’t the local authorities construct a descent home for her? Please, this grandmother deserves more respect. The Mayor of Ruhango District should start working on this. It’s the mayor’s duty to help this heroine; she did what strong and able people never did.

Why can’t the public raise funds and construct a modern house for our old heroine and provide her with the basic necessities in order to help her push on with the difficult life she’s facing today? I urge the local authorities to start that campaign so that we can all join in.

I can’t believe we still have heroes and heroines in Rwanda, who showed bravery in saving the lives of people during the Genocide against the Tutsi, still living such a life! For sure, something is missing in Rwandan society’s spirit. Where is Minaloc (Ministry of Local Government and Social Affairs) or CNLG? Please do something simple but useful to this old lady.
