Let genocide perpetrators repent and be forgiven

Editor, The Unity Week launched on Monday in Shyogwe Sector, Muhanga District, should be used to unite Rwandans.  Speaking from a Christian viewpoint, it is clear that anger, hatred and vengeance do not reflect the image of Jesus Christ. We can emulate Jesus Christ and forgive those who wronged us but only if they admit to their crimes and ask for forgiveness. Forgiving genocide acts is difficult but God has mercy which He shares with us all.
