As Christians in Rwanda and the rest of the world celebrate Christmas, President of Catholic Episcopal Conference of Rwanda, Bishop Philippe Rukamba has urged Rwandan Christians to use Christmas in fostering forgiveness, unity and reconciliation in their communities.

Rukamba made the call during an exclusive interview with IGIHE on Christmas day.

Rukamba said that Rwandans should seize the opportunity of Christmas to overcome bad history and dedicate their lives to Almighty God.

“We call upon Christians to sit and rethink about nurturing peace in their hearts, live peacefully and overcome past odds. They should feel God and dedicate their lives to Him. This will help become good Christians as well as good citizens,” he preached.

Catholic Church continues to preach unity and reconciliation following the consequences of divisionism which led to the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
