Gitesi Sector

Gitesi Sector memorial, built in 2007, took more than a decade to construct because most of the Tutsi in these areas died during the genocide, living the bodies with fewer living advocates. Now a relatively maintained memorial site, a barbed wire fence protects the mass grave, with its flat stone surface, and a white marker with the inscriptions “twarabakundaga” / “we love you”, “Turababura” / “We lost you”, “Nitiuzabibagirana” / “We wont forget you”.
