Dr Alvera Mukabaramba, the State Minister in charge of Community Development and Social Affairs in the Ministry of Local Government, urged Rwandan journalists to air peacefully oriented messages that not only to help in uniting Rwandans but also contribute towards the development of the country. She told mourners to reshape the image of media as it was damaged by those who were involved in the Genocide.
