PRESS RELEASE The 20th Commemoration of the Genocide Against the Tutsis in Rwanda
The program, which had a diverse line up of performers, genocide survivors, academics, civil servants, and human rights activists, was both moving and thought-provoking. “The Rwandan genocide is a horrific memory in our world history,” said Mary Millben, an award-winning singer who opened the event with a stirring song. “As a global community, we must all commit to pledge ‘never again’ to allow genocide to divide Rwanda or any community across the globe.”
ADDRESS BY PRESIDENT KAGAME AT RWANDA DAY ATLANTA

Kwibuka20_Ambassador's Remarks 4-07-2014
With more than one million lives lost at the hands of fellow countrymen, it seemed not long ago that evil had triumphed in Rwanda. We have heard the searing testimonies of Jacqueline Murekatete and Eduard Kayihura who offered a glimpse into the unimaginable suffering endured during one hundred days of genocide.
Our vision is about investing in people President Kagame addressed students at Mercer University Stetson School of Business
We were very conscious of where we were coming from and what needed to be changed: our mindset. We fought against genocide and when we took responsibility, we made sure that we did everything possible to make every Rwandan feel that they have a stake in what is happening in the country. People used to wait for people to do the work for them. We said no, it has to start with us. The others can help but only if you are doing something
