Rwanda: 15 years after genocide, artist calls for teaching forgiveness to children

As Rwanda marks the 15 year anniversary of the horrifying genocide, Rwandan artist Jean Paul Samputu called upon Rwandans to focus on children as they talk about reconciliation. “We need to have a new generation, a generation free of resentment,” said Samputu during BBC’s ‘Imvo n’imvano’, a popular weekly radio show in Rwanda’s vernacular “Kinyarwanda’. The radio programme is broadcast to Rwanda and its neighbouring countries of Burundi, Uganda and partly Congo from the BBC studios in London.
