Rwanda’s ambassador to the U.S. Mathilde Mukantabana will travel to Longview Saturday for a ceremony to remember the country’s horrible genocide 21 years ago.
LeTourneau University business student Charity Mutesi, a native of Rwanda, organized a commemorative walk and ceremony to remember the slaughter that was inflicted on the Tutsi. Some 800,000 people were killed in 100 days.
Mutesi was a toddler when her family fled to Uganda. She wants college students to learn what happened and be more compassionate.
