Canadian Legislators Honour Victims Of Genocide

A delegation of Canadian members of Parliament has been shocked by the 1994 genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda.

The delegation on Thursday visited Kigali Genocide Memorial and paid tribute to the victims.

The Memorial is the resting place of 250000 victims.

According to handlers at Kigali Genocide Memorial, the Canadian legislators were given a guided tour through the facility to orient themselves with the events before, during and after the horrendous genocide against Tutsi.

“Canadian parliamentarians learnt more on the history of genocide against the Tutsi through a tour of the memorial’s exhibits,” Kigali Genocide Memorial said.

The Canadians also laid a wreath of flowers in honour of the victims.

The official commemoration event will begin with Laying Wreaths at the Kigali Genocide Memorial.
