Nyanza gives temporary accommodation to genocide widows

The Chief of the RDF Reserve Force on this Thursday the 5th.Sept 2013 officially started the program to offer temporarily the accommodation renovated by the Reserved Force to the 1994 genocide survivors in Nyanza district.


Lt Gen Fred Ibingira, Murenzi Abdallah the mayor of Nyanza district as well as the team of technicians and engineers visited 3 of the 19 houses that were renovated by the Reserved Force (Inkeragutabara). The houses were appreciated and temporarily given to the survivors of the1994 genocide against the Tutsis.

These accommodations are especially for widows who remained with no family members after the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis. Thacianna Mukarubayiza is one of these widows who is grateful to having a safe and a beautiful home after a long period of time.

The beneficiaries of these houses started occupying them on Thursday the 4th Sept 2013 but on a temporary note until they are full built and safer to habitat permanently.

Eng. Innocent Ntaganzwa who is in charge of construction in the Reserved Force says these houses were badly destroyed but they were reconstructed and made stronger once more.

“What remains to be done in these houses are little compared to what is done and they will be added in sooner” says Eng. Eric Gatera the officer in charge of infrastructure in Nyanza district.

The program of building and reconstructing the houses for the survivors of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis is being done in all districts of the country to end the issue of accommodation that has been going on for a long time.
