RWAMAGANA - Genocide widows in the country should work hard so as to be self reliant and help the country to develop, the National chairperson of the association of Genocide widows (Avega-Agahozo) Chantal Kabasinga, said on Tuesday, as the association marked its 9th anniversary.
She pointed out that the wounds of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi can only be healed by hard work and not despair.
“It is true that you experience difficulties due tough times you went through. However, I would like to remind you that you shouldn’t be overcome by despair,“ Kabasinga said.
“I so far feel proud of you for the good work you have been doing. We as your leaders will not let you down, but it is proper for you to work around the clock to facilitate your projects.”
The event attracted various officials of the organization from across the country.
Christine Mukamugenza, the chairperson of AVEGA in the Eastern Province, advised members to embrace various income generating projects.
“At your level of understanding, no one should tell you what to do. You are expected to be proactive for the purposes of being able to sustain others,” she said.
The members thanked their leaders for having given them some of the basic needs in their communities such as health services.
