Editor,


This is with reference to Sunny Ntayombya’s opinion piece, “Don’t sacrifice our heritage on the altar of modernity”, (The New Times, March 13).

If what the writer points out in the article is true, then culture is valueless without heritage.

The relevant bodies should preserve such ancient buildings as our natural heritage sites. I am sure tourists have in the past included the former King’s residence on their list of must-see attractions when visiting Rwanda.
