This year marks the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. More than 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed over a period of 100 days in 1994, starting on 7 April.

 

The Rwandan Government, working with the UK charity Aegis Trust, is leading a global commemorative campaign called “Kwibuka 20″ (“Remember 20″): http://www.kwibuka.org. The campaign was officially launched in Kigali on 7 January 2014, kicking off a series of events leading up to the commemoration on 7 April. A flame of remembrance is touring through Rwanda between 7 January and 7 April, and Rwandan embassies around the world have been asked to organize national launches of “Kwibuka”.

 

 

You are all invited to cover this event.
