Rwamagana- Rwanda National Police (RNP) donated Rwf 1 million to facilitate the renovation and upkeep of Mwurire Genocide site in Rwamagana District.

A delegation of over 100 police officers, led by Deputy Inspector General of Police, Stanley Nsabimana, joined residents of Mwurire to pay tribute to Genocide victims in the area.

Nsabimana later presented a check of Rwf1 million to the Rwamagana Mayor Nehemie Uwimana, to help in the maintenance of the site.

He said that the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi was a sign of political bankruptcy from the previous regimes, adding that the cowardly acts of the despotic regime, had caused a lot of miserly in the country.

“I can assure there won’t be any more Genocide in Rwanda. The leadership and awareness of the population, today, cannot give it space,” he said.

Uwimana said that survivors went through difficult times, which was why they needed special care to keep on.

“What happened here is beyond human imagination…but the killers live to regret, when they see some of the people they wanted to finish off still breathing,” said the mayor.

Alphonse Rutinduka, a survivor from Mwurire, told The New Times that survivors have managed to put the ugly history behind and move on with the rest of the society.

“We are involved in community development through government programmes … our children go to school and access medical care. The government performed miracles to save this country from complete collapse,” he said.

Mwurire cemetery is a home to remains of over 26,000 victims.
