The Minister of Local Government, Francis Kaboneka has said that journalists killed during the 1994 genocide against Tutsi will be always remembered as brave professionals who perished standing for and defending the truth.

He made the remark as journalists killed in the 1994 genocide against Tutsi were commemorated yesterday by Rwanda Broadcasting Agency (RBA), Media High Council (MHC) and Rwanda Journalists Association (ARJ).

Kaboneka said that media played a direct role in genocide though some journalists stood for the truth and resisted discrimination until death.

“We remember them today for their good deeds. We remember them as heroes having stood for the truth which prevailed. Those who committed evil acts will be remembered for cowardice,” he said.

Minister Kaboneka requested journalists to embrace patriotism.

“Currently, Rwanda needs professional journalists standing for the interests of the nation not for selfish desires,” he said.

These are some journalists who perished during the 1994 genocide against Tutsi and media houses they were affiliated to:
