BURERA – The Executive Secretary of National Unity and Reconciliation Commission Dr Jean Baptist Habyarimana, has challenged students completing Ingando to transfer the knowledge acquired during their course to other youths in the country.
Dr Habyarimana said that civic training-commonly called Ingando, contains the package of values, lessons about Rwanda’s past and future plans which the youths should embrace.
‘We have come from a situation marked by a very difficult past. Teachers and students need to first understand the source of this sad past in order to build a meaningful vision for the future generations,’’ he said.
He was closing the civic education program for 824 students from the Adventist University of Central Africa-Mudende at the Peace and leadership Center-Nkumba in Burera district.
The Rector of the Adventist University of Central Africa-Mudende, Abel Sebahashyi Ngabo urged the students to maintain discipline while at university and outside.
Meanwhile, Community policing Committees comprising of 30 members from each district also started two-week civic education program at the centre.
Opening the training, the Assistant Commissioner of Police and the Director of Community Policing, Emmanuel Butera, noted that Rwandans have a big role in upholding the peace and security attained.
