Ngoma residents were urged to contribute for the renovation of genocide memorial sites.

49 genocide memorial sites in Eastern Province are not properly built yet the government fund is sufficient to cater for the reconstruction of 4 genocide memorial sites.

“It’s a responsibility of districts and residents to renovate 40 genocide memorial sites. Residents should strive to play their part,” said Odette Uwamariya; governor of Eastern province.

“Genocide memorial sites in Eastern province do not befit the victims buried in them. We have to join efforts and rebuild the memorial sites,” said Gihana Samson, IBUKA representative in Ngoma district.

The call was made to the residents while closing the genocide commemoration week in Rukira sector of Ngoma district.

Rukira memorial site contains 2462 remains of 1994 Tutsi genocide victims.
