Kigali 1994-04-07

Please allow me to post this here.
If one needs to link this to aviation let’s say that para-commandos often “go to work” by air.

During one of my last trips to Kigali, I paid a visit to the place where 10 Belgian soldiers were slaughtered 25 years ago to the day and I wrote in the condolences book :

In this room, 50 liters were shed in what ended up being an ocean of blood in 1994.
10 Belgian soldiers were assassinated here after having been deployed by ignorant politicians and abandoned by incompetent cowards.
We shall never forget that. We shall never forget you.

The place is well maintained and respectful. The Rwandan government may be thanked for that.

Some of the photos I took.
