I read with horror that another genocide survivor, Séraphine Uwankwera (50) a resident of Kagatamu cell, has been murdered.
The deceased was murdered as she was coming from Gashirabwoba Genocide memorial site also in Bushenge sector where she had gone to attend a Genocide commemoration ceremony where some of her family members who were killed are buried. Uwankwera was found while lying in a pool of blood in the morning of Monday by a 15-year old girl.
How cruel can people become? I mean, we’ve just finished the week-long genocide commemoration period and it’s surprising that, especially after hearing all the talk about reconciliation, someone still has a wish to continue on the same murderous patch.
While it might have been a random act of murder, although that wouldn’t make it any better, the evidence is that murderers were genocide suspects who wanted to conceal evidence attesting to their role in the Genocide because the deceased has been a witness during Gacaca trials in the area.
And this latest murder was right on the heels of the murder of two Genocide survivors, François Gasirabo and Jeanette Nyirabaganwa, in the Southern Province late last month.
When shall those who are still killing decide that enough is enough?
Haven’t you had enough blood on your hands to last a lifetime?
