The mother Radio in Rwanda, working under Rwanda Broadcasting Agency (RBA), was officially launched on May 27th 1961 in Kigali City.
However, the Radio broadcasting sets were in Burundi, former Ruanda-Urundi territory main headquarters.
In 1963, shortly after Rwanda's independence, regime, the radio also started to work independently in Kigali. That is where the most popular and oldest Radio in Rwanda started from.
RBA celebrated 55-year anniversary yesterday in Kigali, in the ceremony that took place in Kigali Convention Centre. It was a colorful event that was attended by senior government officials, former and current employees of RBA and general community among others.
The radio was under government control before and during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, and was used by the then government to cultivate hate among the people.
Silas Mbonimana who started to work for Radio Rwanda in 1982 said that ethnic discrimination was also inside the institution.
“I started when there was good mood inside, but, as days passed, things changed to bad because of ethnicity. Every person wanted to know others' origin, there were also extremists who wanted to harm colleagues,” he said.
After the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, the radio was used to unite Rwandans and preach new vision by the government.
Until 2003, it was the only radio that was operating in Rwanda. In 2004 private radios were opened and brought different programmes which helped them to dominate the radio that had been there for years.
As private radios had soft programmes like entertainment and sports, they attracted audience than Radio Rwanda with the majority being youth.
The changes in the industry forced Radio Rwanda to join the race and introduced similar programmes as well as recruiting young journalists.
Future of the radio
Speaking at the event yesterday, the RBA Director General, Arthur Asiimwe said that in next five years, they want to reform Radio Rwanda and affiliated radios so that they provide content based on people's expectations.
“We want to be a leading and trusted media house; we need improvement,.. we want to work without bias,” he said.
He said that in five years, they want to raise quality, embrace creativity and capacity building among employees,” he added.
Speaking at the event, Prime Minister, Dr. Edouard Ngirente requested the radio to continue to facilitate people along the development journey by providing them relevant information.
“Rwandans need media that give them well researched development news. You have been doing that and we hope that you will continue. It is few months now since the government announced the seven-year government programme, the programme has different plans that Rwandans need to know about, so, they need deep explanations so that no one will be left behind,” he added.
Rugege was speaking on Friday in Kigali at the commemoration of former justice sector personnel that were massacred during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi attended by, among others, justice sector employees and families of slain victims.
He said that the value that should be bestowed upon genocide victims is justice which does not consider ethnicity.
“Among what we should give particular attention is cases related with the genocide against the Tutsi. They should be fairly tried because when they are not properly handled, they can destabilize the attained unity and reconciliation among Rwandans,” he explained.
“I call upon prosecutors and Judges' attention when handling cases of genocide ideology, deniers and trivializers or when re-trying cases that had been tried by Gacaca courts,” he said.
Speaking at the event, the head National Commission for the Fight Against the Genocide, Dr. Jean Damascène Bizimana said that prior to the 1994 liberation, justice system turned a blind eye in pursuing people who initiated hatred and cultivated the genocide ideology among Rwandans.
“Judiciary is among sectors that paved ways for the genocide. Investigators and prosecutors were characterized by persecuting and judges were characterized by injustice, neglecting laws and violating human rights based on ethnicity; Tutsi were particularly desecrated,” he explained.
“Judiciary did not pursue politicians who initiated activities spreading hate and genocide ideology,” he noted.
He said that political parties like APROSOMA and Parmehutu started to spread documents cultivating hate and trivializing Tutsi in 1957 and 1959 through their papers.
The now Rwanda Arts Museum had been the residence of two Rwandan Presidents, Juvenal Habyarimana who lived there until 1994 and Pastor Bizimungu who lived there from 1994 to 2000.
Since 2003, the building had been Presidential Palace Museum and was under management of the Institute of National Museum of Rwanda (INMR).
According to INMR, changing the palace into arts museum came from visitors' request and artists who want to develop the sector.
Speaking at the launch of the museum yesterday, INMR Managing Director, Amb. Robert Masozera said that they are carrying reforms in different museums and today, three museums have been changed.
He said that they started from former environmental museum in Karongi, museum showcasing Rwanda's colonial history in Kigali and the next was Presidential Palace.
“This is based on visitors' and partners' wishes; they suggested different changes in exhibition and the name of the museum. There were no historical things to see in the museum,” he explained.
“We used to tell history of two presidents who lived here and people go uncontended, that is where we started to think about something that we can add here, and that's where we brought the art museum,” he added.
The same museum has been in Nyanza District since 2006 to 2018 in King Mutara III Rudahigwa Palace.
Currently, the museum has a total of 127 artifacts, among them 117 were in Nyanza based museum.
He encouraged artists to bring their artifacts to the place whose current monthly visits stand at 35,000.
Presidential Palace has been the fourth most visited museum, after the Capaign Against Genocide Museum, ethnographic museum at Huye, and Nyanza King's Palace.
Currently Rwanda has eight museums with 200,000 visitors and earn the country about Rwf200 million per month.
The launch of the museum coincided with the International Museum Day which was celebrated under the theme “Hyper-connected museums: New approaches, new publics.”
