Unity and Reconciliation among Rwandans has risen by 12% in the last 10 years, according to the Minister of National Unity and Civic Engagement, Dr. Jean Damascene Bizimana.

 This was discussed during the second day of the Umushyikirano National Council. The discussions focused on the unity and reconciliation of Rwandans in 30 years after the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

Minister Dr. Damascene said that the rate of unity and reconciliation among Rwandans has been increasing every year since 1994. In 2010 it was at 82.3%, in 2015 reaches at 92.5%, and in 2020 it was 94.7%. That is an increase of 12.4% in 10 years.

Dr. Bizimana stated that the good governance in Rwanda has led to a harmonious coexistence, with statistics showing that 97.1% of Rwandans live in harmony with their neighbors.

He further explained that various decisions have contributed to the increase in unity and reconciliation among Rwandans. These include the elimination of ethnic identity cards, land distribution, and the implementation of alternative prison services designed to rehabilitate prisoners.

Additionally, Dr. Jean Damascene highlighted the government’s efforts in establishing institutions to combat corruption and injustice, as well as empowering the people to actively participate in decision-making processes. 

He also emphasized the importance of Rwandan cultural practices such as Abunzi, Umuganda, Gira Inka program, Itorero, and others.

 Minister Jean-Damascène Bizimana urged the youth to combat those who seek to divide Rwandans, emphasizing this does not require a history expert, 

It takes seeing where Rwanda has reached and not accepting it to be ruined.
