Residents of Mutendeli sector in Ngoma district injected over Rwf 3 million in Mutendeli genocide memorial site renovation.
“We have embraced activities concerning the genocide memorial sites. The construction fund came from residents alone,” says Eric Rudahunga in charge of Mutendeli memorial site activities.
Residents built the genocide memorial site following advice by Odette Uwamariya, Governor of Eastern province who called on residents to reconstruct sites as Rwanda commemorates the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.
Mutendeli memorial site contains 4150 remains of the 1994 Tutsi genocide victims.
There are 49 genocide memorial sites in Eastern Province, residents are urged to contribute for their renovation.
