President Kagame Urges Rwandans to Prioritize National Identity

President Paul Kagame has called upon Rwandan citizens to prioritize their national identity, even when residing outside the country.

During an interview with Radio 10 and Royal FM on Monday, April 1, President Kagame emphasized the importance of understanding Rwanda’s history to prevent the recurrence of past tragedies, particularly the genocide.

In response to a question about how youth can contribute to preventing future conflicts, President Kagame underscored the collective responsibility of all Rwandans in shaping the country’s future.

He stressed the significance of acknowledging Rwanda’s past, present, and future aspirations, regardless of one’s age or generation.

President Kagame stated, “All Rwandans, young and old, must look back and know where we came from, where we are, and where we want to go. Even people who were born later should learn something from those who were there at that time.”

The President’s remarks reflect a broader effort to foster unity and national pride among Rwandans, both within the country and abroad.

By encouraging citizens to embrace their shared heritage and values, President Kagame aims to strengthen social cohesion and promote a sense of belonging among all Rwandans, irrespective of their geographic location.

Rwanda’s history, marred by the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, serves as a poignant reminder of the consequences of ethnic division and hatred.

President Kagame’s leadership has been instrumental in guiding Rwanda through a process of healing and reconciliation while spearheading efforts to rebuild the nation and ensure a brighter future for its citizens.

As Rwanda continues its journey of development and transformation, President Kagame’s call for unity and collective responsibility resonates deeply with citizens, inspiring them to actively contribute to the nation’s progress.

By embracing their Rwandan identity and learning from the lessons of the past, citizens can forge a path towards a more peaceful and prosperous future.

President Kagame’s message underscores the importance of national identity and collective memory in shaping Rwanda’s trajectory. His call for unity and shared responsibility serves as a rallying cry for all Rwandans to work towards a common goal of peace, prosperity, and progress.
