The remains of 60 genocide victims after being prepared to be buried during the 20th memorial period

For these remains to be finally put to rest in Genocide Memorial site, it is an achievement for genocide survivors who have been waiting to get their relatives buried but could not know where they were hidden.

Many people from Ntongwe sector are participating in the preparation of these bodies by washing, cleaning and putting the bodies for the burial.

Jean d’Amour Ruhezamihigo a genocide survivor in Kinazi sector says doing this act shows that their relatives are scattered around.

“Though it has been 20 years down the road, it gives us peace of mind to know our relatives are finally laid to rest in the Memorial site where they should be” says Ruhezamihigo.

Ruhango district is preparing two mass graves to bury the 60 victims of genocide in Ruhango district Memorial Site.
