Rwanda’s exotic gorilla named “Cute one” by Microsoft’s Bill Gates

Musanze, Rwanda, 30th June, 2014:For a decade, the African nation of Rwanda has celebrated the mountain Gorillas, rare and endangered primates, through a colourful naming ceremony called “Kwita Izina”. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the global event, and Rwanda has a conservation story to tell about these rare primates.

Naming and conserving mountain Gorillas has become an international. Big international names like CNN founder Ted Turner, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Hollywood icon Natalie Portman have visited Rwanda’s mountain Gorillas and named infants. Rwanda has over 150 mountain gorillas, from 10 families or groups. Bill Gates visited the ‘Sabyinyo’ family in June 2006 and named a baby as ‘KEZA’ or ‘cute one’.

On July 1st, 2014, the 10th anniversary of the ceremony, Rwanda will celebrate the birth of 18 mountain Gorillas in Musanze district, near the gorilla habitat shared between Rwanda, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo.

There are strict rules to ensure safety of both gorillas and tourists. Visitors must maintain at least a distance of 7 meters from the gorillas, only 8 tourists are allowed per visit, with a limit of one tourism group per day, per each gorilla group, and visits are limited to an hour.

Rwanda’s mountain gorillas were first brought to international attention by the conservation efforts of American late Dian Fossey in the 1960s and 1970s, a call that Rwanda has given undivided attention since. After the genocide targeting Tutsis in 1994, Rwanda’s tourism and hospitality sectors boomed.

Last year, tourism revenue rose to $294m, from a meager $62m in the year 2000. Payments for gorilla permits count a big portion. In 2010, Rwanda hosted 666,000 visitors who generated US$ 200M – a 14% increase from 2009. In 2013, Rwanda hosted 1,137,000 visitors.

Five per cent of the revenues collected from gorilla tourism are invested in the surrounding communities. Park communities have benefitted from more than 300 projects including schools.

As government revenues have grown, so has the number of gorillas. Ambassador Yamini Karitanyi, Head of Tourism and conservation at the Rwanda Development Board or RDD said last week that Rwanda’s community-led conservation efforts have led to a 26.3 per cent growth in the population of gorillas since 2003.

For Rwanda, more mountain gorillas means more revenues

For Rwanda, more mountain gorillas means more revenues

At the foot of the Virunga Volcanic Mountains, Northern Rwanda, thousands of villagers gather to celebrate the birth of 18 mountain gorilla newborns just meters from the bambooforest up in the hills.

Hundreds of tourists and foreign dignitaries attend the annual baby gorilla naming ceremony, locally known as KwitaIzina. Local foods are prepared. Chefs roast fresh goat meat and fish.  Beer and soft drinks are in abundance.

Rwandan Intore warriors, dressed in traditional attire,brave the freezing mist, thunderously thumping their feet on the floor, jumping high and rhythmically swaying their neatly weaved toupees.The crown suddenly gets wild, with applause in response. Speeches are said and praises made. Selected individuals are given the advantage to give names to the newborns.

On July 1, 2014, Rwanda held the 10thKwitaIzinafestival. American Ambassador to Rwanda, DonaldKoranwas given the privilege. He enthusiastically stepped on the floor and named one of the babies ‘Twiyubake’,loosely translated as self-reliance.

LeoniCuelenaere, the Netherlands Ambassador to Rwanda named the baby ‘Inzozi’, meaning dreams. Some names are so expressive, the crowd cheers when they are announced.

Normally, after the naming exercise, the real party kicks off. Traditional instruments are played to set the mood right.The national troupe, a selection of beautiful and exemplary women dancers seizes the dance floor; swinging their attractivelycurved bodies to the heart-shattering sounds of drum-beats.International and local pop artists perform too. The crowdgets even wilder.

It is a privilege to name a baby gorilla. The Bill Clintons and Bill Gates have once been given such privileges.In June 2006, Bill Gates visited the Sabyinyo familyfrom which he named their new baby ‘KEZA’ [cute].

Biggest names present

KwitaIzina, launched in 2005, which has grown to become an international event, creates a global buzz. Global media networks, such as National Geographic, Discovery Channel, SABC, Reuters and M-Net Studio 53, Animal Planet, all broadcast the event live to millions of viewers around the world. International celebrities, such as Star Wars heroine Natalie Portman have attended. In 2008, Natalie Portman named a baby ‘Gukina’ [to play].

The late crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin, was represented by his former manager John Stainton who named a baby ‘Ingufu’ [strength], in memory of Steve. Renowned American conservationist Jack Hanna, Marjorie Kaplan of Animal Planet and Terry Lundgren,the President of Macys’have attended the festival. Famous actor Don Cheadle was invited to the ceremony in 2010 and named a baby gorilla Zoya, meaning life.

According to Valentine Rugwabiza, theChief Executive Officer of Rwanda Development Board, the eventemphasizes the conservation of the gorillas. Since 2005, KwitaIzina was launched, 163newbornshave been named.

Due to the festival, the mountaingorilla population in Rwanda has increased to over 600from 10 families of the remaining 880 gorillas found in Rwanda, Uganda, and the Eastern DR Congo, owing to collaborative efforts of the government, the local communities neighboring the national park and conservation partners.

“Because of the country’s community-led conservation efforts that led to a 26.3 percent growth in the population of gorillas since 2003,” Rugwabiza said.“That constant growth in the gorilla numbers is a clear sign of good conservation policies by the government of Rwanda.”

More gorillas, more revenue

And for Rwanda, more gorillas meanmore revenues.Gorilla trekking permits count for the large share. In 2010, from 666,000 visitors, Rwanda generated $200m. In 2013, from 1,137,000 visitors, the tourism industry generated about $294m. The industry has grown exponentially, it made only $62m in 2000.

The government allocates 5 percent of the revenues to local communities around the national park.  A school of six classrooms was built with funds from the ‘Shared Revenue Scheme’. More than300 projects have been rolled out, including construction of more than 50 primary schools, roads and clean water supply.

Rwanda’s Prime Minister Dr. Pierre Damien Habumuremyi, who presided over the ceremony, and named the baby ‘Birashoboka’ [it is possible], said conserving the nature is integral to Rwanda’s developmentagenda.

Particularly, he said, “local residents are the primary beneficiaries as it has helped set up community businesses and income generating projects that has improved lives and the communities’ economy.”

The Prime Minister strongly advised residents to keep up the conservation practices in order to maintain the current benefits from tourism.

To emphasize the importance of KwitaIzina, cerebrations are organized with themes.  This year’s theme for example was; “A Decade: Conserving-Empowering-Growing”, with emphasis on how gorilla tourism empowers communities through revenue sharing programs.

Conservationists and gorilla admirers such as Ambassador Cuelenaere, say Rwanda’sconservation effort for the Mountain Gorillas is remarkable.

Emmanuel Bensah, a Ghanaian who attended the carnival said, “Rwanda should serve as an example that Africa can link conservation and tourism.” “This is a message that Africa should not leave conservation to the [foreigners].”

m_Gahunda yo gukurura ba mukerarugendo yatangijwe no gutunganya kumukore wa Rwabugiri

Amwe mu mazu azifashishwa n’abazasura kumukore wa Rwabugiri

Nyuma y’igihe kinini akarere ka Ngororero gatekereza ku gukoresha ahantu h’amateka ku butaka bwo muri aka karere mu gukurura ba mukerarugendo, ubu imirimo yo gutunganya ahingenzi muri uwo mushinga yatangijwe no kubaka ahitwa ku Mukore wa Rwabugiri mu murenge wa kageyo.

Kuri ubu, imirimo yo kubaka amazu ndangabwami hamwe n’andi mazu azifashishwa n’abazahasura akaba ari hafi kugerwa ku musozo, kuko bitanyijwe ko imirimo izaba yarangiye mumpera z’uku kwezi kwa Kamena 2014.

Aha kumukore wa Rwabugiri hari amateka y’uko ariho umuzungu wa mbere waje mu Rwanda Von Geotzen w’Umudage yahuriye n’umwami w’u Rwanda kuri icyo gihe wari Kigeli IV Rwabugiri, akaba ari nawe witiriwe aho hantu.

Gahunda yo kwibuka mu bigo by’amashuri ikorwa ahanini  igamije kwibuka no gusubiza icyubahiro abishwe barererwaga muri ibi bigo, abarezi n’abari abakozi babyo, ariko kandi hakaniyongeraho ko ibigo biba bigamije ko abanyeshuri babwirwa ububi bw’ibyabaye, hagafatwa ingamba z’uko bitasubira.

 Ikimenyetso cy’urwibutso kibafasha gutekereza ku bubi bwa Genocide

Ahenshi muri ibi bigo banatangiye umuco wo kubaka ibimenyetso byo kwibuka bakanandikaho amazina y’abahaguye, bigashyirwa hagati mu bigo ku buryo buri wese abasha ku bibona kenshi. Iki kigo cyitiriwe mutagatifu Filipo Neri nacyo kiri mu byubatse ikimenyetso nk’iki hagati mu kigo aho buri munyeshuri, buri murezi ndetse n’abahagenda bose bakibona.

Aba banyeshuri bavuga ko ari igikorwa cyiza kandi ko bibafasha cyane gutekereza ku mateka mabi yaranze igihugu, bikanatuma banafata ingamba nziza zo kugira uruhare mu kurandura amacakubiri ayo ariyo yose ndetse n’ingenga bitekerezo zishobora gutuma habaho ubwicanye nk’ubwabaye mu Rwanda.

m_Le Rwanda va célébrer le dixième anniversaire de « Kwita Izina »

Rwanda se prépare à célébrer son dixième anniversaire de la cérémonie connue sous le nom de « Kwita Izina ». Cette cérémonie qui consiste à donner des noms aux nouveaux bébés des gorilles de montagne du fameux par des Virunga va coïncider avec la naissance de 16 bébés des gorilles. Cet événement annuel sera célébré le 21 Juin 2014 à Kinigi, aux pieds du Park National des Volcans.

C’est  dans ce cadre que sont prévues des activités en rapport avec le tourisme pour marquer cet événement de « Kwita Izina ». C’est entre autre l’exposition du commerce du tourisme de l’EAC sur diverses activités et produits que la région peut offrir.

Cette exposition qui va se tenir à Kigali va durer 3 jours, du 18 au 20 alors que le 21 Juin 2014, sera le jour grand jour de donner des noms aux bébés des gorilles.

Cet événement est non seulement très important dans l’industrie du tourisme du Rwanda mais aussi de la région surtout les pays comme l’Ouganda, la RDC et le Burundi.Il permet de réunir différents intervenants dans ce secteur et des invités de marque susceptibles d’investir, de plaidoyer ou de promouvoir le tourisme de la région.

Kwita Izina est un événement annuel et prend de plus en plus le caractère international. Depuis sa création en 2005 jusqu’à présent, plus de 170 bébés des gorilles ont eu des noms par différentes personnalités invités. Là il faut entendre le président Paul Kagame et la Première Dame Jeannette Kagame, diverses stars de Hollywood, des grands journalistes, des acteurs du tourisme, de la conservation, entre autres.

Chose encore plus importante, ces espèces de gorilles de montagnes sont en voie de disparition. Les seuls gorilles qui restent au monde habitent dans le Park des Virunga. Ce dernier est partagé entre trois pays dont le Rwanda, l’Ouganda et la RD du Congo. Et le nombre total ne dépassant pas 500 dont le gros habite dans la partie rwandaise la plus sécurisée et la plus visitée. Raison de plus la politique de la sensibilisation pour la conservation de ces gorilles de montagne.

Ce Park des Virunga, avec son relief montagneux et une végétation étagée, est unique au monde. On y trouve également d’autres animaux de hautes montagnes comme les antilopes, les buffles de montagnes…dont le nombre ne cesse de croître.

La politique du Rwanda est que la population environnante bénéficie des dividendes de ce park. Raison pour laquelle une partie des revenus entre dans les caisses de l’Etat et une autre partie est orientée dans les activités de développement communautés des populations. Une somme de plus 978,065 dollars déjà injectée dans ces activités par RDB dans le but promouvoir le développement communautaire.

Hari hamwe byakozwe, n’aho bitarakorwa bfiza ko byakorwa

Inama y’igihugu y’abafite ubumuga (NCPD) isanga inzibutso za jenoside zikwiriye gutunganywa ku buryo byorohera abantu bafite ubumuga bunyuranye kuhagenda, kugira ngo nabo babashe kuzisura kuko ari inshingano zabo nk’abanyarwanda.

 Inzibutso za Jenoside zikwiye gutunganywa ku buryo bworohereza abafite ubumuga-NCPD.

Ibi byatangajwe kuri uyu wa kane tariki ya 08/05/2014 ubwo abagize inama y’igihugu y’abafite ubumuga basuraga urwibutso rwa Jenoside yakorewe abatutsi rwa Murambi, hagamijwe kunamira abazize jenoside barushyinguyemo no kwigira ku mateka yarwo ngo bafate ingamba zo guharanira ko itazongera kuba.

Tuyizere Oswald, umuyobozi ushinzwe kubaka ubushobozi bw’abantu bafite ubumuga muri NCDP akaba anafite ubumuga bw’amaguru kuko yifashisha imbago ebyiri ngo abashe kugenda, avuga ko ubwo basuraga urwibutso rwa Murambi abafite ubumuga bahuye n’inzitizi z’ingazi nyinshi (escaliers), ku buryo nk’abantu bafite ubumuga bagendera mu magare batabasha kugera mu bice byinshi byarwo, iki kibazo urwibutso rwa Murambi ngo rukaba rugisangiye n’izindi hirya no hino mu gihugu.

Ati “Twavunitse cyane kuko hari escaliers (ingazi) nyinshi. Ni inshingano z’umunyarwanda wese kwibuka ariko hari inzitizi z’uko ahashyinguye imibiri y’abacu ntabwo hateye ku buryo umuntu wese ahagera. Nk’uko mubona izi escaliers, hari abantu batabasha kuhagera bitewe n’ubumuga bwabo. Nk’umuntu ugendera mu kagare ntabwo yabasha kuhagera”.

Tuyizere akomeza avuga ko inzibutso zikwiye gutunganywa ku buryo ababana n’ubumuga bunyuranye badahura n’imbogamizi mu gihe bahasura, dore ko biri no mu mabwiriza agenga inyubako rusange ko hagomba gushyirwaho inzira zagenewe ababana n’ubumuga.

Gatabazi Eric, umukozi w’ikigo cy’igihugu gishinzwe kurwanya jenoside (CNLG) ukorera ku rwibutso rwa Murambi avuga ko bigaragara ko abamugaye babangamirwa iyo basuye uru rwibutso, ngo bikaba biterwa no kuba inyubako rukoreramo zarubatswe kera hatarashyirwa ingufu muri gahunda zo korohereza abafite ubumuga ariko hamwe na hamwe bikaba byarakosowe, bakaba bagiye kubimenyesha ubuyobozi bwabo ngo harebwe icyakorwa babashe korohereza abafite ubumuga barusura.

NCPD yemereye akarere ka Nyamagabe amagare 20 y’abafite ubumuga baba barasigiwe na jenoside yakorewe abatutsi muri mata 1994 ndetse n’abandi baba bakeneye insimburangingo cyangwa inyunganirangingo bakaba bahabwa ubufasha.
