Ruboneza explains that having such problems 19 years after the genocide is not due to carelessness but lack of capabilities from the district and cases that are solved by law which takes time to rule them out.
Another limitation to solving such problems of the 1994 genocide survivors is the large number of poor and needy people that need support and that are supported slowly depending on the lack of economic stability of the district.
Jean d’Amour Niyonsenga the representative of the 1994 genocide survivors in Ngororero district says there are always such issues because some genocide perpetrators refuse to pay for the compensation of properties as ruled by court intentionally when they have the means to pay.
Niyonsenga goes on to say that for people who were ordered to pay compensation for the destroyed properties during the 1994 genocide but are not capable of paying back are to be used in community work for the country’s development. The government should extend the courtesy to support the people who were to be compensated through the community work done by the perpetrator.
Ngororero district management as well as IBUKA promised advocacy to make the complaints of the 1994 genocide survivors known.
