On Sunday, the Rwandan community in Switzerland was joined by members of the diplomatic community and friends of Rwanda to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Liberation Day. 

The reception, which took place in Geneva, was hosted by the Rwandan embassy and was attended by over 150 guests. 

The keynote address was delivered by H.E. Dr. Francois-Xavier Ngarambe, Ambassador of Rwanda to Switzerland. He remarked that 20 years after Rwanda's liberation is an occasion to reflect both on the history of our country and on the bright future we are building together. 

Amb. Dr. Ngarambe paid tribute to those who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Rwanda and called on Rwandans, particularly the youth, to honor the memory of those heroes by continuing to promote their vision of prosperity, dignity and equality for all Rwandans. 

The celebration concluded with performances by the Rwandan cultural group ‘Urunana’.
