Rwanda has hosted its 27th anniversary in remembrance of the Tutsi genocide, which occurred in the country in 1994. This is one of the saddest days the Presidency hosts every year in commemoration of the victims who died during the tribal conflict between Hutus and Tutsis.

President Paul Kagame, alongside his wife, Jeanette Kagame, led the commemoration event through the usual lighting of the flame. This happened at the Country’s capital of Kigali Genocide Memorial, where the country buried the remains of 1994 victims totalling 250,000.

The 1994 ethnic clash

Historically, the 1994 clash remains a scar, which Rwandan citizens cannot forget. However, the citizens are to preach the gospel of peace and love amongst themselves.

While briefing journalists, President Kagame made a remark on the recently published French Duclert report. According to him, it was an important step towards a common understanding of what transpired.

This happened amid speculations from all corners of the world. However, they welcomed a report and concluded that France has been bearing overwhelming total responsibilities since the occurrence of the dark moment in the country.

Franch allegedly failed to halt the killings

According to reports, there was a confirmation that President Emmanuel Macron lamented the decision the French Government took and remained blind. This reportedly took place after the killing of 800,000 people of Tutsi ethnic origin.

However, there was an accusation that France failed to stop the killings. The country allegedly complicated issues as regards the crime, failing to establish workable relationships with Rwanda.

The documents are to mark change and desire from France so that the world will understand what happened.

Kagame led the commemoration event that took place at Kigali Genocide Memorial. The event was to mourn the victims who died 27 years ago.

According to reports, the genocide lasted for 100 days, between April and July 1994. This happened after Rwanda’s former President Juvenal Habyarimana died in a plane crash on April 6 in Kigali.

Meanwhile, he reportedly had a link with strong ties between him and French Government.
