Rwanda High Commissioner in UK Yamina KaritanyiHundreds of Rwandans and friends of Rwanda in West midland came together to mark the 22nd commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. The function which was organised by West Midlands Rwandese Community Association {WM-RCA} took place Saturday 23rd April 2016 at St Georges Community Hub, Great Hampton Row, Newtown, Birmingham in West Midland.
Speaking at the event, Rwanda’s High Commissioner in UK HE Yamina Karitanyi, urged commemorators to stand united for the common good to ensure what happened in Rwanda 22 years ago, does not happen elsewhere. “She requested Rwandans to fight genocide denial and channel their energy into constructive actions to build a better country, a proud legacy to future generations".

This Saturday 08th of February 2014, The Kwibuka Flame of Hope reached the city of Coventry in (West Midlands).

The event was attended by Rwandans and friends of Rwanda living in West Midlands including Rwandan Student's Association from University of Birmingham.

Upon receiving The Kwibuka Flame of Hope from the Reading delegation at the Coventry Transport Museum, the West Midlands Rwandan Community Chairman, Mr Bosco Ngabonzima, handed it over to two 20 years old Rwandan youths, Natalie Gasaro and Serge Ngaboyisonga, who then led other members of the community on a Walk of Remembrance through the City of Coventry.

The walk ended at Saint Peter's Centre where participants took a minute of silence in remembrance of the innocent victims of the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda, followed by prayers, survivor testimonies and a keynote address by the community Chairman Mr Bosco Ngabonzima. The participant also viewed the Kwibuka20 documentary and listened to the kwibuka theme songs.
