Police in Northern Region embrace ‘Ndi Umunyarwanda’

Police officers operating in the Northern region on December 11 converged at the National Police College (NPC) in Musanze District to join other Rwandans in promoting unity and reconciliations under ‘Ndi Umunyarwanda’ initiative.
Bishop John Rucyahana, the President of the National Unity and Reconciliation Commission (NURC), who presided over the event, said: “This programme is intended to maintain the dignity of Rwandans and the country in general. This is a means to erase hypocrisy and promote togetherness as we continue to learn our bad history.”
He urged the officers to uphold ‘Ndi Umunyarwanda’ and also participate towards raising awareness among officers and in communities to own this exercise.
He further reiterated that the Rwandan community broke apart due to its bad history that was characterized by divisionism that resulted into mass killing during the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi where more than one million Rwandans were massacred.
He added: “We want Rwandans to be open to one another and speak out their minds freely; this is how we will be able to build a united society with common. The bad history destroyed the tradition and spirit of unified Rwandans, which we should strive to revive.”
Present at the event was also Commissioner of Police Vianney Nshimiyimana, the Commandant of the College and CP Christophe Bizimungu, the Dean of studies at NPC.
