Members of National youth council in Rukiri II cell of Remera sector Kigali city visited Ntarama genocide memorial centre in Bugesera district.
Jean Claude Nzaramba, coordinator for national youth council, asserts that youth of Rukiri II cell have learnt a lesson from Ntarama memorial centre, and this will enable them sensitize other youth on fighting genocide ideologies.
"We have seen bad history and the lessons we have learnt will not stop here but we are going to base on it to teach youth to prevent genocide from happening again," Nzaramba narrated
During the visit, youth were told that before the genocide, many Tutsis were settled in Bugesera district as a way of gathering them for easy killing and that those who survive die of tsetse fly and wild animals that were common in the area.
Bad politics that started during colonial era was supported by the government that replaced colonial rule until Tutsi genocide started in 1994 in Rwanda.
Many Tutsi denied in Ntarama swamp, rivers and in church that was made a memorial because the killers had it planned before the genocide, youth learnt.
Emmanuel Karamba, head of genocide survivors in Remera sector told the youth to understand the negative impact of genocide, in order to build a united Rwanda.
Youth gave a contribution of Rwf50000 to Ntarama memorial site and donated food to a genocide widow Chantal Murekatete from Ntarama sector.
