‘’ The colonizers came and divided us into parts basing on race. Hatred started since 1959, Tutsis were killed, their homes set to fire and others evacuated until the year of 1994 when the genocide was largely implemented by the Rwandan youth at the daylight’’ Gen. Kabarebe says, adding that the APR youth led by the President Kagame decided to stop the Genocide against the Tutsis in 1994.
Directing ANOCA Zone V games in Rwanda complemented adding that he expresses
gratitude towards APR military courage for liberating the country from hands of
bad leadership and that the games aim at instilling peace, unity, humanity and to
build good relation among the 11 countries.

Rwanda and other countries on the earth planet still have a heavy task to teach the youth about peacekeeping and love since they have future of the world in their hands.
