On 4 July 2017, Rwanda celebrated 23 years of transformation. Liberation Day is held every year on 4 July, marking the day the Rwandan Patriotic Army liberated Kigali leading to the end of the Genocide against the Tutsi.
Kwibohora23 is an opportunity to share Rwanda’s liberation story, the journey of unity and reconciliation since 1994 and the country’s vision of shared prosperity.
The Embassy of Rwanda in The Hague celebrated this with the diplomatic community and international organizations at the Hilton Hotel in The Hague. The celebration included a lunch-reception with traditional dance, a short speech by 3 Rwandan children and a speech by Ambassador Jean Pierre Karabaranga.
