April 7, is dedicated as a day of remembrance of the victims of the 1994 genocide in which more than 800,000 people were slaughtered by ethnic Hutu extremists within a period of 100 days. The killers were targeting members of the minority Tutsi community, as well as their political opponents, irrespective of their ethnic origin.
Eyes of a Journalist, a book written by veteran journalist Justus Muhanguzi Kampe, is slated to be launched today Thursday, September 28, 2017 at Hotel Africana at 5:30pm. The book brings back to life names we have not heard from for a long time that played important roles in the RPF struggle to dislodge President Juvenal Habyarimana and the Hutu majority regime in Kigali. The author shares his impatience that turns into frustration after trying in vain to meet the overall RPF commander, Major-General Fred Rwigyema.
