24 years after the Rwandan genocide, Rwandan, Innocent Maniraruta, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Finance Manager, says he has struggled to understand the hatred conveyed at the time.
More than a million people including, some of the MSF staff, were killed in just 100 days during the genocide.
Maniraruta is among the young people who lived through the horror and its aftermath, and would two decades later become a fieldworker for MSF.
He says the government has over the years, succeeded in unifying the country.
It is a time to recognise the good effort and hard work our brothers have done to stop the genocide and stabilise the country.— Innocent Maniraruta, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Finance Manager
The current government is headed by his Excellency Paul Kagame. I can assure you that they have done miracles because they have tried to put people together in unity and reconciliation. They have succeeded because currently if you arrive in the country you will not find a Hutu or a Tutsi, we are united.— Innocent Maniraruta, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Finance Manager
