Rwanda | RUSIZI: unity and reconciliation among residents, only way for permanent Peace
A big step has been made through Unity and reconciliation process, a solution for permanent Peace though there are few limitations; according to findings on 17th Aug2012 when Hon. Agnes Nyirabagenzi (Member of parliament) visited Rusizi District.
Among the limitations that were discussed about include people who refuse to pay for the things they destroyed during the 1994 genocide against Tutsi as atoning for their inhuman acts however as the team that presented them went on to explain, some people were asked to pay by the courts ruling when they are very poor and have no way or means of being able to pay.
For unity and reconciliation to be effective, it takes two sides to understand each other and for those who sinned to approach those they sinned against and ask for their forgiveness and if necessary they are forgiven and those who have what to pay should pay it sooner.
Hon. Nyirabagenzi said that a clubs should be introduced from village levels to cells and sectors which will be meeting often to discuss on how to solve and end such problems.
The genocide survivors who were present said that they have done everything possible to make it easy for those who perpetrated genocide against them by forgiving them but they also want them to play a part in it and pay for what they destroyed and those who are poor to seek forgiveness.
