Nderitu visited the memorial yesterday as she concluded six-day working visit to Rwanda.
Nderitu was taken through different parts of the memorial and received explanations on tragic history that led to the execution of the Genocide, how it was stopped and Rwanda’s resilience journey.
She wrote a message in the memorial’s guest book that UN will always contemplate the extreme cruelty with which it was executed.
Speaking to the media after visiting the memorial, Nderitu called on countries sheltering Genocide fugitives to bring them to face justice.
“I will make possible efforts to engage with member countries accommodating these people [Genocide fugitives] because they must face justice,” she said.
Nderitu and her delegation arrived in Rwanda on 28th August for a visit which she concluded on 3rd September 2021.
Nderitu also visited Rebero Genocide Memorial which is home to slain politicians killed during the Genocide for innate personality or beliefs which differed from the Government which prepared and executed the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi.
As she visited the memorial, Nderitu highlighted that the greatest honour to Genocide victims is to reflect on endured sufferings, recommit to build hope and prevent reoccurrence.
During her stay in Rwanda, Nderitu held talks with President Paul Kagame and different Government officials including Minister Biruta and representatives from umbrella organizations of survivors of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi.
Kenyan Nderitu was appointed to the position towards the end of last year replacing Adama Dieng hailing from Senegal.
