A team of five people set out on the Leadership Development Mission in Rwanda and Congo from 30th of July 2015 to the 12th of August 2015. The first thing that meets you is the memory of the 2002 genocide that took away over 250,000 people In Rwanda. We visited the genocide site where you see the horrible site of dry bone of human persons, children and women who were innocent but died a terrifying death of massacre.
Background story about Rwanda genocide
Rwanda is a landlocked country surrounded by Uganda in the north, Tanzania in the east, Burundi in the south, and Zaire to its west and northwest.
Rwanda does not have any cash crops nor minerals as such. It’s a small country compared to Kenya and has a population of 11 million people with two main tribes, The Hutus and Tutsis. The two tribes were at war during the genocide.
At the moment, Rwanda has stabilized with good security, good roads and sufficient water supply. Its very attractive for investors even though the gap between the rich and the poor is big and still widening.
The people of Rwanda are serious about spiritual matters more than leadership matters. Nonetheless, they are hungry for the word and thirsty for spiritual direction. I'm amazed at what God has placed in my life because it is needed all over East Africa and beyond. Rwanda being a member of East Africa community, we did not require a visa to enter into the country nor make any payments. Their is a lot of trade between Kenya and Rwanda sanctioned by the two government ,and hence, a cordial relationship where Rwandese take Kenyans as their big brother.
