New museums planned in Rwanda to remember the fight to end the genocide


Rwanda will be launching a new museum at the end of the 100 days  of mourning  the million  lives lost during the genocide. This museum will be at the national Parliament of Kigali. It will be two decades since the genocide happened in the Land of hundred hills.

The Parliament has always been a museum of its own with bullet holes from the final days of liberation. It also shows the two Army soldiers operating a heavy machine gun that was used to first contain and stop attempts by Genocide.

With time, Rwanda Development Board will be also launching the liberation Museum and this will be at the Former RPA command Centre in Mulindi. It was this building that was used before between 1990 to 1994 to liberate Rwanda.  Once these are launched then Rwanda will officially have 3 National museums to include the Kigali Genocide Memorial which has now become one of the famous places visited by foreigners who come to Rwanda for Safaris and also business.

Despite the fact that the genocide militias and remnants of the former regime army pose a threat they are still holed up across the border in Eastern Congo which is a big threat to this land of a thousand hills. The United Nationals and also the Congolese army Is aware of their existence they are still left to   untouched.
