As Rwandans in the country and around the world are commemorating the genocide against Tutsi, Rwandan students studying in universities located in the city of Shenyang met to commemorate the Genocide against Tutsi.
Shenyang is located in North east China, in the Province of Liaoning. The official ceremony took place at Rwandan Embassy in Beijing, but the embassy encouraged Rwandans in other cities to organize commemorations. The event started with the mass that took place at Shenyang Catholic Church, with prayers.
After church, other ceremonies took place at Kazhihui center hall, where 40 Rwandan students met and Ishimwe Prince a master’s student in Computer Sciences explained the Rwandan history.
He urged students to learn from the sad history to fight genocide ideology and build on the progress so far realized under the visionary leadership of HE President Paul Kagame.
Alain Patrick MUTABAZI, medical student and the president of Shenyang Diaspora lit a candle of Hope and urged students present to be the light of hope to their classmates from other nations.
