Rwanda Correctional Service (RCS) has said that some inmates have accepted to reveal where victims of 1994 genocide against Tutsi they killed are laid following pacification lessons in various prisons countrywide during the 23rd commemoration of 1994 genocide against Tutsi.
RCS spokesperson, CIP Sengabo Hillary has told IGIHE they collaborate with local leaders and Ibuka, umbrella organization of genocide survivors to accord decent burial to victims when inmates unveil where remains of genocide victims are scattered.
“Nine inmates from Rubavu prison, Muhanga and Rwamagana have accepted to reveal where remains of Tutsi they killed in genocide are laid. One inmate from Rubavu prison will indicate remains of genocide victim in Rubavu , one Muhanga prison inmate will indicate two locations of remains in Gakenke district while seven inmates from Rwamagana prison will indicate where remains of 12 genocide victims are scattered in respective districts of Gatsibo, Kayonza, Ngoma and Rwamagana,”he said.
Sengabo urged inmates to keep confessing and reveal where more remains of genocide victims are scattered.
“They should be relieved and provide information because it won’t increase punishments,” he said.
