A total of 24 people have been arrested for genocide ideology as Rwanda held the 23rd commemoration of 1994 genocide against Tutsi.

“We have recorded cases of people with genocide ideology. We have 25 files of genocide ideology cases manifested in spoken words and violent acts being assessed by the prosecution,” Police spokesperson, ACP Theos Badege has told RBA.

Badege explained that the majority of the culprits include people who don’t attend commemoration talks and those who tell others that the Tutsi should not survive, threatening that the Tutsi will be killed again among other violent acts.

He pointed out cases of a stabbed cow belonging to a genocide survivor in Kicukiro and others suspected of burning a house of an 80-year old genocide widow among others.
