Residents of Gasabo district yesterday visited Gisozi Genocide Memorial Centre to pay their respects to victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
The ceremony began with an afternoon march that started from Kigali Business Centre (KBC) to the memorial site.
While addressing the over 2,000 mourners, the Mayor of Gasabo, Willy Ndizeye, said that the main objective of visiting the centre was to remember and honour the over 250,000 victims buried there.
“I advise each individual here to always remember what happened during the Genocide,” Ndizeye said.
He urged them to have hope in life and to render support to the vulnerable Genocide survivors in whatever ways they can and work closely with government institutions in fighting trauma cases among Genocide survivors.
The district donated Rwf100, 000 to the Management of the memorial site to facilitate its day-to-day operations.
