BUJUMBURA - The Rwandan community in Burundi concluded the 17th Genocide Commemoration Week with a Walk-to–Remember in the capital Bujumbura on Wednesday.

They gathered at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Bujumbura for the conclusion of the commemoration.

The function, carried out in memory of the victims of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi, was organised by the Rwandan Embassy in Burundi in conjunction with the representatives of youth associations such as Peace and Love Proclaimers, As we forgive Rwanda Initiative and AEGIS Students.

In his speech, Ambassador Eraste Kabera urged everyone to remember and fight anyone who dared to bring back divisions among Rwandans. He emphasised that truth was a preventive measure and a weapon against violence and denial of Genocide.

Kabera called upon Rwandans to work hard to overcome the numerous consequences of the Genocide.
