Dr. Jean Pierre Dusingizemungu, president of Ibuka foundation has asks genocide survivors to go back to their places of origin and promote development, saying the economic growth of their area depends on their activeness.
Ibuka President resolved this on July 22nd 2012 during an event to lay to rest 407 bodies if 1994 Tutsi genocide victims in Musanze district.
Dr. Dusingizemungu stresses: “Be confident, come back here and start projects like staring up schools, hospitals and do tourism businesses like others. The governor and the district mayor will make it easier for you to start businesses. ”.
He added that genocide survivors of Musanze but living outside the district should go back and compete with others on market. There are a lot of opportunities here that one can invest in and become rich, says Ibuka foundation president.
Genocide survivors reveal that genocide in Musanze started in 1991 where Tutsi “Abagogwe” were killed on grounds that they are related to “Ikotanyi”.
On April 7th 1994, “Abagogwe” were killed to an extent that two children and those that had not spent a night at home were spared, lament Musanze genocide survivors.
Some of the Abagogwe bodies are buried in Busogo genocide memorial centre in Musanze district while other bodies of their genocide victim loved ones are not yet found.
