Super Level Records, Crown Paints visit Genocide survivors

Published on : 14/04/2015

Artistes under Nyamirambo-based Super Level studio led a visit to Nyamata Catholic Church where 10,000 Tutsi were murdered as the country continues to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. 
The visit, organised in partnership with Crown Paints, involved painting the memorial site and a visit to Rutobotobo Village, outside Nyamata town where the artistes and Crown Paints team handed over home supplies to 19 families of Genocide survivors.

Vipur Kapul, the country director of Crown Paints, said: "We, on this day, remember those innocent people whose lives were cut short in their own country. We ask God to help so that such a terrible thing never happens again."
Kapul said the company has a campaign where it aims at raising Rwf10 million to provide paint for the memorial site and welfare for Genocide survivors' schools.
Speaking on behalf of the artistes, Richard Nsengumuremyi, the chief executive of Super Level Records, said: "The Genocide happened and we acknowledge it. Those who deny it need to acknowledge it so that we can all understand where we have been and the goals we need to achieve."
He urged survivors to stay strong pledged more support through songs and aid. The whole exercise and aid cost the two companies Rwf2 million.
