Miracle in Kigali
Event in Norwich on Rwandan genocide 25 years on 


Rwandan Genocide survivor  Illuminee Nganemariya will talk about her experience in Rwanda during the genocide in 1994 and her subsequent life in Norwich at an event on October 23.

The event marks 25 years since the genocide and is part of Black History Month. Illuminee will be in conversation with Paul Dickson, who assisted her to write her book ‘Miracle in Kigali’.

How does it feel to wake up every morning for more than three months facing the prospect that you and your newborn baby are likely to be brutally murdered that day?

This was the experience of Illuminée Nganemariya, a young Tutsi bride. By a seeming miracle, she and her son Roger survived the 1994 attempt by Rwanda’s Hutu extremists to wipe their Tutsi neighbours from the face of the earth.

Illuminée existed for 100 days in the living hell of Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, after watching her husband be dragged away to be killed by friends who had celebrated their wedding with them a month earlier.

She embarked on a horrific journey through the Genocide, with her baby strapped to her back – their survival was a miracle.

Illuminée and Roger moved to the UK in September 1996 and have built a new life in Norwich.

A new anniversary edition of Miracle In Kigali has been published and it updates Illuminée and Roger’s story, including Roger’s developing film and TV acting career. He was most recently seen as Dadir Hassan in the BBC drama Informer
