THE MAYOR of Kigali, Fidele Ndayisaba, has urged city residents to turn up in large numbers and welcome foreign visitors who have come to join the nation in commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
He said Kwibuka 20 is a special event because it reminds the world of the Genocide. For that reason, the country will receive many visitors.
“We should show our warm culture of welcoming guests; first by attending the commemoration at Amahoro Stadium and by serving them beyond their expectations,” he said.
The stadium will tomorrow open at 7 am.
The mayor said some business will remain open and adviced people to work in shifts (morning or afternoon) to allow them attend at least one event.
Activities related to entertainment such as discos, cinemas, sports are suspended for the entire commemoration week.
