Hosted by The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and the Kinship of Kush, a new venture on a mission to empower Young Global Africans to influence the world, the High Commission and members of the Rwandese Community in London attended the screening of the documentary film “The Uncondemned” at the AVIVA UK cinema.
“The Uncondemned” tells the gripping and world-changing story of a group of young international lawyers and activists who fought to make rape a crime of war, and the #Rwandan women who came forward to testify and win justice where there had been none.
Addressing the audience after the film, the Her Excellency Yamina Karitanyi said “Rape & genocide are not events – they don’t just happen and end. It stays with you. I am proud to belong to a country that has committed to fight this evil while sharing our experience to educate the world, such that this history doesn’t repeat itself.
The High Commissioner then joined a panel discussion alongside Michele Mitchel, Director of the film, Mrs Shanthi Anaan, founder of Kinship of Kush and Ms Nicola Brentnall, Director of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
