The flame travels next to Ntarama in Bugesera District on 22 March 2014.

Rwamagana is composed of the former communes of Rutonde, Bicumbi, Muhazi and Gikoro.

When the genocide in Rwanda started on 7 April 1994, Tutsi from Rwamagana travelled to Mwurire Hill where they took refuge and resisted multiple attacks by militia intent on killing them.

The militia was led by Semanza who was Mayor of Bicumbi.

He was backed by soldiers who killed the more than 26,000 Tutsi who had gathered in Mwurire.

Rwamagana has twelve genocide memorial sites where 80,505 victims are buried.

Today’s event will be hosted by the Mayor of Rwamagana and will reflect on the events of the 1994 genocide as well as the journey of unity and renewal in Rwamagana and Rwanda since.

The Flame of Remembrance will be received from Kayonza District by two 20-year-old students, Aline Uwamahoro and Benjamin Mugabo from Agahozo Shalom Youth Village.

A children’s choir from Ecole primaire de l’espoir will sing ‘Urumuri Rutazima’ (Never Ending Flame) to welcome the flame. The special guest is Hon. Prof Silas Lwakabamba, Minister of Infrastructure. The Governor of the Eastern Province, Odette Uwamariya will also speak.

Testimony will be given by survivor Jean Marie Vianney Rutareka. A dramatic performance will be presented by students from Agahozo Shalom Youth Village and a message of unity will be rolled out by Alphonse Shumbusho.

The Kwibuka Flame symbolises remembrance as well as the resilience and courage of Rwandans over the past twenty years.

Carried in a simple lamp, the flame is being used to light other lamps in communities around Rwanda. To mark twenty years since the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, all memorial fires throughout the country are being lit from this single Kwibuka Flame.

National mourning

President Paul Kagame will use the Kwibuka Flame of Remembrance to light the National Flame of Mourning.

This will take place on 7 April 2014, marking the official beginning of the national mourning period to commemorate the genocide in Rwanda.

The flame will also be the source for lighting candles at a vigil at Amahoro Stadium on the evening of 7 April 2014.
