EAC commemorates the Rwanda genocide 28 years on

The East African Community Secretariat Thursday commemorated 28 Years of Genocide Against Tutsi at the EAC Headquarters in Arusha, Tanzania.

EAC was in collaboration with the Tanzanian Local Authorities in Arusha, and the Moshi Rwandan Community and the Embassy of Rwanda in Tanzania.

The commemoration event was preceded by a walk to remember and laying of wreaths at the Commemoration monument at the EAC gardens as a tribute to the more than one million innocent lives lost through the heinous extermination of Tutsis in Rwanda in 1994.

Arusha Regional Commissioner, John Mongella noted that genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi in Rwanda was a tragedy not only to Rwanda as a country but to humanity as a whole.

Rwanda High Commission in Tanzania and Permanent Mission to the EAC, John Kizito expressed his appreciation to the East African Community for standing in solidarity with the people of Rwanda during trying moments.
