We are seeing another group of Rwandans who have remained (some of them) with the ideology of genocide, being sent for a traditional course.
Whereas I concur with the organizers of this kind of course, I at the same time warn them that unless, some well trained people are sent there to put reasonable sense in those teachers who cater for our children, the results will remain the same.
It should be remembered that the same people have been in the same place before.
At least every adult person in Rwanda has been in the same ‘Ngando’ in different capacities.
Some where there; when they were joining higher institutions of learning, as local leaders, ex- soldiers returning from Congo forests, etc. Teachers have all these categories of people.
The new team in the ministry of education should thus make sure that a different approach and perspective is used when sensitizing teachers who are going to ‘Ingando’ tomorrow.
This will save them from a futile exercise that would only be seen as reinventing the wheel. They need a different taste and not what they have heard because it will be boring them.
