A Rwandan academic, researcher and politician Papias Mlimba Musafili has challenged students at the Faculty of Veterinary Science and Veterinary Medicine at the University of Rwanda (UR-CAVM) to embrace technology in order to tackle Genocide ideology.
In his speech, Musafili delivered the message at a ceremony last Friday to commemorate the 28th anniversary of the ISAE Busogo students and staffs as well as other victims who were killed during the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi.
He said that some of the perpetrators of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi were youth who took up the immoral advice from parents, caretakers and instructors but we’re privileged that the well-to-do young people who love Rwanda have stopped the Genocide.
Additionally, he said that what is left to do now, is to preserve what we have achieved while striving to make sure it never happens again. So using technology, you’re urged to use social media to fight against all sorts of discriminations that promotes genocide ideology.
Some of the students who added the rite said that commemorating the Genocide against the Tutsi reminds them of the atrocities committed and never to accept what happening by fighting ideology.
Speaking to the media, Flank Rwema Hatungimana said, “Such an event gives us a lesson especially since we’re still at school preparing to be the next future generation of leaders, we condemn all those carried out these atrocities”
Some of the survivors who spoke on behalf of others also urged the students to unite, oppose anyone who instilled divisionism among Rwandans
The commemoration was organized to remember the five staff, twelve students and others who were killed during the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
