The youth from higher learning institutions and universities who are also members of the Pan African Movement (PAM) Rwanda yesterday visited the National Liberation Museum inside the Parliamentary building located in Kimihurura.

The youth was taken through 11 rooms featuring exhibitions of liberation struggle.

Uwiringiyimana Jacqueline, enrolled in the Faculty of Law at the University of Kigali (UoK) has revealed that she learnt a lot from visiting the museum as she witnessed the bravery of RPA soldiers to liberate the country.

Uwiringiyimana said the history inspired her that she will unite with colleagues to desist people denying and trivializing the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi.

“We have received explanations that the youth played a big role in Genocide. So, we are considered the country’s strength to resist people trivializing and denying Genocide against Tutsi. I and my colleagues are ready stand against these propagandists fueling Genocide ideology,” she said.

“Patriotism comes first. Many of liberators were at the same age bracket of ours. They were still young but dedicated to selflessly serve the nation. This reminds us that we are indebted to serve the country with all efforts,” added Uwiringiyimana.

Nsabimana Jean Marie, one of Commissioners at PAM Rwanda who led the delegation said that the visit was aimed at helping the youth to learn history.

“The major purpose is to educate the youth on national liberation history particularly learning history of Genocide against Tutsi so that the youth can take the lead in resisting people trivializing and denying Genocide against Tutsi,” he said.

Nsabimana also requested PAM Rwanda members and the youth in general to consolidate gains.

“We encourage PAM Rwanda members to develop patriotism spirit, consolidate gains and stand against whoever intending to fuel ethnic discrimination or hold us back,” he noted.

Established on 8th August 2015, the Pan African Movement Rwanda is in charge of taking the lead in promoting the Pan Africanism ideology within the nation by translating it into tangible results in line with the national development Agenda. The major objective is to build a self-reliant and totally liberated Africa; “Africa without Complex”.
