Kwibuka 24: CAF President Ahmad sends solidarity message

Posted on Apr 13 2018

The President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Mr. Ahmad has joined the rest of the world in commemorating the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi for the 24th time by sending a solidarity message to Rwandans.

In a letter sent to Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) on Thursday, Mr. Ahmad said, “It is with sadness that I write this letter to commemorate the tragic Tutsi genocide of 1994. The loss of innocent lives of women, children and the elderly will never be erased from all our memories,”

“The sacrifices made to bring peace to Rwanda will continue to guide us
always so that the lives of so many people never perish in vain,”

“While sport and football should not serve any political purpose, we certainly believe that they can help to bring people together in harmony and peace. Perhaps the joy that our football brings, can help the people of Rwanda and the families of the victims to overcome the tragedies of the days horrible genocide, even if it’s only for a few minutes of a match,”

“We wish you our most sincere hopes of development and prosperity to the Rwandan people. Please accept the assurances of our highest consideration,” the letter concluded.

The solidarity message from Africa’s football leader Ahmad Ahmad comes a month after he visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre during his three-day official visit to the country.

The CAF President called for the Memorial Center to be maintained as a reminder for future generations to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.

The CAF President donated his personal money of $2,000 to help in maintaining the centre where up to over one million innocent Tutsis were killed in the Genocide against the Tutsi in 1994.
