Justice4Survivors

1994-2021! Can you believe it's 27 years already? Yes, 27 years have now passed since the start of the Genocide against the Tutsi in which an estimated one million women, men, and children were brutally massacred. Of them were both my parents, three sisters, and countless members of my extended family. I survived. Like most of you readers, I ask myself what to do with this bonus gift of life? Well, that is a question!
In an attempt to add some meaning to my survival, I created this blog 8 years ago to serve as a space for reflection on justice and memory after this tragedy. I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.

In conversation with Kizito Mihigo, the gospel singer who died in a Rwandan jail

Isolated from friends and family, struggling to pay bills and blacklisted from the nation’s airwaves — newly released recordings reveal why the popular gospel singer , genocide survivor and peace activist Kizito Mihigo attempted to flee Rwanda in February 2020….“You can’t work or draw inspiration from your Christian faith, to give a universal message. You must only be inspired by those in power, from the president [Paul Kagame] … The only thing they want is for us to sing the praises of President Kagame,” he said.
