On 18th July, Hon. Robinah Nabbanja, Prime Minister of Uganda, visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to pay respects to the victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi and learn more about the history of the Genocide.

Hon. Nabbanja began her visit by laying a wreath at the burial place where 250,000 victims of the Genocide are laid to rest. Together with her delegation, she observed a moment of silence to honour the victims of the Genocide.

Hon. Nabbanja was accompanied by Clarisse Munezero, Permanent Secretary in Rwanda’s Ministry of National Unity and Civic Engagement (MINUBUMWE).

“Genocide against the Tutsi is a regrettable act against humanity,” Hon. Nabbanja wrote at the end of her visit. “The Government of Uganda and all its people condemn this evil act and join the people of Rwanda in resolving that it must never happen again. Let us stand for peace and unity, Ubumwe and Ubuntu. May the souls of the Genocide victims rest in eternal peace.”
