Former Leader of Rwandan Parliament and Genocide Survivor Delivers Message of Reconciliation
Joseph Sebarenzi

Joseph Sebarenzi, former Speaker of the Rwandan Parliament and survivor of that country's genocide in the mid-1990s, visited Limestone College on October 11th to deliver his message of peace and reconciliation.

His appearance, which was free and open to the public, was hosted in Limestone's Fullerton Auditorium and sponsored by the Limestone Chaplain's Office.

Sebarenzi grew up in post-colonial Rwanda, and as a child experienced intermittent episodes of the tribal violence which years later would engulf his country. In 1994, when Hutu extremists slaughtered more than 800,000 Tutsis, Sebarenzi was safely out of the country, but both his parents, seven siblings, and numerous other relatives lost their lives during the genocide.
