The National Commission for the fight against Genocide (CNLG) in the partnership of AEGIS TRUST had an exposition of peace messages composed by the people of Musanze district on Tuesday the 22nd, July, 2014.
These compositions were especially made by children aged between 9years and 12 years and the young adults who won the CNLG drawing competitions organised by CNLG during the 20th commemoration period. The compositions are meant to promote peace, unity and reconciliation in Rwandans.
Nelson Ngirinshuti the coordinator of this exposition says the exposition was prepared to sent reconciliation messages to Rwandans through the compositions of the young and innocent people.
“This is also a call up message for the youth to participate in nation building. They need to learn to work with their efforts not waiting for the government to provide for solutions to their issues,” explained Ngirinshuti.
Different compositions including art and crafts, drawings and poetry all discussing the dangers and effects of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis, promotion of peace, unity and reconciliation to Rwandans were in the 2 days exposition.
“We should uproot genocide with its ideologies, embrace our similarities as Rwandans,” said Sylvie Uwineza a Senior 6 student in her recital.
“My composition is a wakeup call to all Rwandans to promote peace and unity for a better Rwanda,” explains Arsene Mukendi a 20 year old of his art.
The exposition of art promoting peace, unity and reconciliation started in Kigali towards all provinces. It will be done in 2 districts of each province. After Musanzwe, it will be in Gicumbi in the Northern Province of Rwanda.
