Rwanda National Police In Haiti

The Rwanda Police peacekeepers serving under the United Nations Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) joined the rest of Rwandans, on April 7, to pay homage to over a million innocent lives massacred in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi as the country kicked off the 100 days of mourning.

The Rwandan peacekeepers were joined by peacekeeping forces from other countries serving in the Caribbean nation, Haitian national Police, local leaders and clerics to mark the 20th Genocide anniversary.

The commemoration started with a walk to remember. A moment of silence was also observed in respect of those who perished in the Genocide.

Chief Superintendent Peter Hodari, the Rwanda Formed Police Unit (FPU) contingent commander thanked all those who turned up to join Rwandans to remember the victims of the horror act.

“We gather here today to remember and pay homage to the victims of this carnage of ruthless atrocities and to also pledge solidarity and strengthen the survivors,” Chief Supt. Hodari said.
