Rwanda envoy cautions African leaders against genocide
The Rwandan High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador Stanislas Kamanzi, has admonished Nigeria and other African leaders to be proactive against every tendency that could lead to the genocide experience of his country.
He advocated promotion of integration among African countries.
Kamanzi gave the advise in Kaduna yesterday during a programme organized by a Kaduna-based Interfaith Mediation Centre (IMC) in commemoration of the 1994 genocide experience of Rwanda.
The programme which began with a commemoration march, also looked at areas of preventing mass atrocities and honouring victims (candle lightening).
According to the envoy, what happened in Rwanda should not have happened. He prayed that it doesn’t occur again in any country on the continent of Africa. He stressed the need for every country to learn from the lessons of what happened in Rwanda and beware of tendencies capable of a repeat in any country.
Ambassador Kamanzi said:”Countries will draw lessons from what happened in Rwanda and commit genuinely to action and ensure that all that led to the genocide is fought and block all loopholes within the system that make people to think or even show it in a negative manner and focus on what we share , which is humanity”.
