From Cape Town to Kigali....

Foggy, blustery day in Cape Town. But it'll be clear & bluster-free when @tmurithi12 & I launch our books on international criminal justice in Africa @_IJR_ 5:30pm today.

Full house but I'm told some seats can be squeezed at the back if you RSVP here:

1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.

When I was in #Rwanda in 2017 to commemorate the #GenocideAgainstTheTutsi, I struggled with how best to honour the survivors who so generously shared their stories.Was it in retelling of unimaginable horrors they were subjected to?Or in celebrating survival,resilience & strength?
I shared stories of survival and courage. And I also took home in my heart resilience and joy. Remembering #Kigali Independent University student survivors #Kwibuka25

Today marks 25yrs since the genocide against the Tutsis in #Rwanda. The international community stood by as more than 800,000 people were slaughtered in 100 days.
In 2017, I was honoured to be in Rwanda for the commemoration. #RwandaGenocide
A thread I wrote in #Kigali in 2017 during the ceremonies to mark the anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsis. There are 250,000 Tutsi victims of the 1994 genocide buried at #Kigali Genocide Memorial #Rwanda #Kwibuka25
Kwibuka means Remembrance. It was an honour to join The Walk to Remember in #Kigali two years ago to remember the #GenocideAgainstTheTutsi. I send love and solidarity to friends in #Rwanda who are remembering today, the 25th anniversary. #Kwibuka25
