Mr. RUHAMYAMBUGA Olivier, the executive secretary of Rubavu district addressing the audience.
As a matter of fact, he mentioned different reason why unity and reconciliation ought to be taught to younger generation since, in ahead, they are the ones who will build and protect Rwanda country. His talk was centered on not only the history of Rwanda before, during, and after colonial period but also the journey of unity and reconciliation through “Ndi Umunyarwanda program”. “Genocide destroyed the relationship which marked Rwandans from long ago” said the executive secretary. Therefore, it is our duties and responsibilities to fight against the genocide ideology.
In addition, Mr. RUHAMYAMBUGA Olivier 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 and this; will be achieved when younger generation adopts the culture of working together without being characterized by divisionism.
