Huye: NIRDA Commemorates Employees Killed in Genocide
National Industrial Research and development Agency (NIRDA) on Tuesday June 30 commemorated its former workers lost in the Genocide against the Tutsis. The ceremony took place at the ministerial headquarters.
The ceremony involved officials from the government paying tribute to 19 victims at the NIRDA memorial site.
Dr Joseph Mungarurire, the director of NIRDA said that commemorating the murdered employees is a way of showing them respect and dignity.
“We will continue commemorating together with the survivors because the employees who were killed would have been around working for their country; but they didn’t survive the genocide due to bad leadership characterized by divisionism and discrimination. However, we will continue to work together and develop our country,” Mungarurire said.
He further urged the survivors to involve in job creation which will help them to develop themselves, generate income and develop the country.
“We have to fight genocide ideology and teach young children to love themselves, others and the country. We have good leaders who oppose genocide ideology, which will not be tolerated because we want a country without divisionism, but with peace and development,” Dr Mungarurire said.
