Kenya’s Methodist Church members have visited Kigali Genocide Memorial to witness what happened in the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

Arrived in the country on Monday for five-day visit, the group is visiting fellow Rwandans in order to combine efforts to spread Christianity in the East African Community.

After visiting different parts of the memorial and getting explainations about the history of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, Rev. Ismael Kidengi told the media that they learnt a lot which will help them fight the reoccurrence of the genocide anywhere in the World.

“God requested us to love one another and construct the nation, but the evil has interrupted our relationship and brought us many problems including murder. So, as Christians we wish that these atrocities would not reoccur anywhere in the World” he said.

The head of women in Kenya’s Methodist Church, Rev. Yuness Indangasi said that she was very impressed with the development of the country regardless to its past

“I’m pleased with how the government managed to reconcile people and live in harmony,” she said

“This country has overtaken others in Africa; together with your good leadership, I hope that you will reach far in ten years ahead,” she added

The head of Women in Rwanda’s Methodist Church, Rachel Mukamudenge said that visiting the genocide memorial helped Kenyans understand the truth of what happened in Rwanda and lean from that history

“This is a lesson for them to pray for our countries to keep the journey of development and unity. Churches should also play their role in mobilizing the community to fight against any evil that could cause the genocide occurrence,” she said
