Twitter Users Express Solidarity With Rwandans On 25 Genocide Anniversary

Rwandans are today remembering their loved ones that were lost during the 1994 genocide.

This year marks 25 years since Rwanda experienced the genocide that killed more than one million people and displaced millions more.

The killings were sparked by the murder of former president Juvénal Habyarimana on April 6 1994, whose plane was shot down overhead Kigali.

Killings began on April 7, fast spreading across the country.

The commemoration of the 25 anniversary of the genocide is led by President Paul Kagame, who has largely been credited with ending the war and leading Rwanda through reconciliation and reconstruction.

Tens of world leaders are in Kigali to stand with Rwandans as they remember their lost loved ones. Among those present include Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, Republic of Congo President Denis Sassou Nguesso, Nigerien President Mahamadou Issoufou, Djibouti President Ismaïl Omar Guelleh and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel.

Rwandans and other nationalities on social media have been sending their messages of solidarity with the people affected by the genocide.

Here are some of the messages we got from Twitter;
