9th Gorilla naming ceremony to empower communities around the Virunga parks

Posted on 19 June 2013 by peter

GorillaThis year’s Kwita Izina {gorilla naming ceremony} is under the theme, “Celebrating nature and empowering communities” and seeks to empower communities surrounding the gorilla park areas.

“We chose the theme to appreciate the local communities surrounding the parks as well as recognize their role in protecting nature and the park,” says Rica Rwigamba, the head of tourism and Conservation at Rwanda Development Board.

While unveiling this year’s Kwita Izina program,Rica Rwigamba said that it would be moer than just one event but a series of events which will include community celebrations,launch of community projects as well as the Kwita Izina caravan. This tour will go from Kigali to Kinigi passing by the different touristic attractions and community projects on that route.

Through the tourism revenue sharing scheme, RDB funds various community projects throughout the country. This year, Maize Grinding Plant, a maize production cooperative near Nyungwe National Park will be launched. This women’s cooperative used to cut trees from the park to curve mortars for maize crushing. Today, with the support of RDB, they have a modern grinding machine that has increased their production. They now supply maize flour throughout their area.

The 9th annual gorilla naming event will take place on 22nd June in Musanze District, Northern Province of Rwanda.12 baby gorillas and 1 family will be named by various government officials and international guests.

According to the organizers, there will be free transportation arrangements from Kigali to Musanze.

Kwita Izina was initiated to identify and protect the endangered mountain gorillas and their habitas in the Virunga parks. More than 80 per cent of tourists visit Rwanda for gorilla tracking.

Rwanda boasts of 293 of the 480 gorillas in Virunga parks.

The caravan tour is set to replace last year’s Kwita Izina cycling tour.

Genocide survivors demand protection of memorial sites

Posted on 09 June 2013 by peter

01

Nyaruguru district residents living in Kigali town have requested that historical places should be marked even when the memorial graves are shifted to other places.

The request comes after the government of Rwanda has embarked on reducing the number of 1994 Tutsi genocide memorial sites for easy maintenance.

Genocide memorial sites were built in areas where massacres took place during 1994 Tutsi genocide. However, victims’ bodies have to be shifted to other memorial sites because of low capacity as far as maintenance is concerned.

It’s in this regard that genocide survivors see it right to reserve those places as historical so that history is not forgotten.

Theodore Simburudari, one of Nyaruguru residents says memorial sites should remain standing in areas where many Tutsis were massacred but their bodies can be taken to other graves.

“An example is a place like Nshiri where Tutsis were stopped and killed at the border trying to cross over to another country. Such a place needs a historical significance,” Simburudari laments.

The genocide survivors wish that books be written about the famous killers that killed multitude Tutsis.

Also, where people were killed should be marked with sign posts showing how the persecuted went from place to place until killed. This would help the government to spend less yet build memorial sites.

Nyaruguru genocide survivors in Kigali took time to remember the victims in a mass at Sainte Famille parish in Kigali town.
