The Rwandan High Commissioner to Uganda, Maj Gen Frank Mugambage, has said those who planned and executed the 1994 genocide are still alive and still carry the same sinister feelings.
Maj Gen Mugambage also insisted the Rwanda government has put in place systems that will ensure the massacre where over one million Tutsis were murdered does not happen again.
“During the genocide, the international community remained silent when our brothers and sisters were dying. This shows how they wanted the situation to persist but God at the end redeemed us,” he said.
The High Commissioner was speaking at the weekend during a ceremony to commemorate the 24th genocide anniversary at Kasensero, Kyotera District, where several victims of the genocide, whose bodies were found floating on Lake Victoria, were buried.
He emphasized that as a country, they are still hunting for perpetrators of the genocide.
“If such people fail to reform, we shall not wait for them to cause more trouble. Instead, we are going to start looking for them in their hideouts,” Maj Mugambage said.
He also urged Rwandans to unite and love one another regardless of tribe.
The Rwanda High Commission in Uganda has been commemorating 100 days of the genocide this year and it climaxed with visiting of sites where Rwandans were buried in Uganda.
The remains of 10,000 victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsis are buried in parts of the Mpigi, Masaka and Rakai districts.
Rakai district has Kasensero memorial site, Mpigi Golo memorial site and Masaka Lambu memorial site.
