5 months ago

Rwanda Social Security Board (RSSB) has remembered its former employees who were killed during the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi. The event was organised as part of the 28th Commemoration of the Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

 

The event held on April 29, 2022, at the RSSB headquarters, was in memory of the 19 former Caisse Sociale du Rwanda (CSR) employees who were killed during the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi.

 

In his remarks, Regis Rugemanshuro, the Director-General of RSSB noted that remembering restores dignity to the victims as well as helps the survivors of the Genocide Against the Tutsi to rebuild themselves.

 

“Remembrance enables the Rwandan community to reflect on the causes of the Genocide Against the Tutsi, and renew our commitment to Never Again,” said Rugemanshuro.

 

“These times of remembrance remind us as Rwandans of the effects of terrible leadership that had fueled divisions among the Rwandans and that led Rwanda to the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi, that killed more than a million Tutsis including those we remember today,” he added.

 

Regis Rugemanshuro, The Director-General also further stressed that according to history, the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi was planned by the government and Genocide ideology was taught and imposed on Rwandans, especially on the youth resulting in the Genocide that killed more than a million Tutsis in just 100 days.

 

The Director-General also reiterated his appreciation to former RPF Inkotanyi forces who stopped the Genocide and rescued those who were in danger.

 

‘’This was achieved because of their values of loving Rwanda and Rwandans without discrimination’’, He said.  

 

“Remembrance is therefore a great opportunity to celebrate and reflect on this courage and for everyone to understand their role and responsibility in upholding the unity of Rwandans so that Genocide will never happen again,” he stressed.  

 

The Director-General also revealed that there is the body of one of the former employees being remembered, Mutangampundu Adele, was found and will be buried appropriately soon.

He reiterated that it is a very difficult time; it hurts even more that even after 28 years there are bodies that have not yet been found and given a proper burial.

 

The event was attended by the Executive Secretary of IBUKA, Naphtal Ahishakiye, Corporate Services Division Manager of Nyarugenge district, Murebwayire Betty, Representatives of the families of former CSR employees, RSSB Staff based at Headquarters while RSSB staff located at RSSB branches watched the event via RSSB YouTube channel.
