HONORABLE KAYIRANGA ALFRED BRIEFING ULK/GISENYI CAMPUS STUDENTS
Today, 20th December 2016, ULK/Gisenyi students were honored to hear from a Member of Parliament, Honorable KAYIRANGA Alfred.
To start with, Honorable KAYIRANGA Alfred thanked the university’s management for having allowed him to make it to the campus to address students on an issue of great importance. Still there, he thanked the students for having availed themselves in spite of their tight studying schedules and the like.
As a matter of fact, his talk was centered on the fight against the genocide ideology. After disclosing the theme of his talk, Honorable KAYIRANGA made it clear that the genocide against the tutsi was, on the one hand, mainly perpetrated by young people, and it was, on the other hand, stopped by young people. Hence, young people have to play a pivotal role in ensuring the genocide never occurs in Rwanda again.
Subsequently, he talked of laws regulating the prevention and/or fight against the genocide ideology in Rwanda. Sad to say, he put it that the genocide ideology still prevails in the hearts of certain Rwandans in spite of the punitive measures and the policy of unity and reconciliation. To be concrete, he stated some cases, whereby some Rwandans proved to be characterized by divisionism through the words they uttered against their fellow citizens, known as genocide survivors.
Conclusively, Honorable KAYIRANGA called upon the students, intellectual youth, to live a life free of genocide ideology.
If you are to build a brighter tomorrow, make sure you remain genocide free. To get there, lay the foundation of your life on unity, love of your fellow citizen. Remember, united we stand, divided we fall.
It is on this exhortation note that the talk was brought to close.
