More than 20 years after the Rwandan genocide occurred, the bodies of more than 150 victims have been buried at a genocide memorial site in the country.
Thousands of people gathered as 157 victims were laid to rest at the Ruhango Episcopal Anglican Church. The church itself is the site of a massacre and has now been converted into a genocide memorial site.
The 157 bodies were only recovered recently from different areas across the Rusororo Sector.
“It was always a challenge that our people could not get a decent burial, we have been searching for them,” said Gerard Mudahemuka, whose family were killed in the church massacre.
“Now that we found them, we pray that they rest in peace and we will continue to push so we get the remains of other relatives as well.”
