Vestine Niyonsaba, a widow of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi gave her testimony about how she regained hope in life after the death of her husband.
“I met a group of RPF members talking about government policies. I approached them and they oriented me. I acquired a loan from the bank, built a house, paid school fees for my children and bought a cow,” Niyonsaba said.
She added that since then, she has been involved with a number of projects and that she is now back in school pursuing a bachelor’s degree.
“Women have realised that, with Kagame, everything is possible, I pray to God that he wins the elections,” she said.
