Religious groups to be involved in Genocide commemoration



In its efforts to sensitize the public on the upcoming 19th commemoration of the genocide against the Tutsi, today 26th March 2013, the National Commission for the Fight against the genocide met religious leaders at its Headquarters in Remera.

This was in the same line with routine meetings CNLG has been organizing with different categories of people and partners with an aim of well preparing and conducting the 19th commemoration of the genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi in 1994.

This year’s genocide commemoration will be marked under the theme: “Let’s commemorate genocide and strive to self reliant”

This consultative meeting was chaired by the Executive Secretary of CNLG Mr. Mucyo Jean de Dieu who took this opportunity to brief them about the preparations of the upcoming commemoration. As people who are in constant contact with different public, he reminded them to sensitize their members to participate massively in the commemoration activities.

He further told them that, genocide survivors mostly need moral and material support from the whole community around, and this is where religious leaders have to show their solidarity and let the public they serve get involved effectively in all commemoration activities.

Religion is where we find healing and hope. Further, history will show that the faith community is a key component to building an enduring society. Mucyo said.

On their side, religious leaders committed to fully participating in commemoration, especially by making sure that their Sunday services end earlier and join others in their respective villages and keep one-minute silence at 12:00 a.m. on 7th April 2013 when the whole country and the World will be remembering the Tutsi who perished in the genocide in 1994. They also committed to provide to survivors with support whenever possible.
