THE GERMAN EMBASSY STAFF HEADED BY THE GERMANY AMBASSADOR TO RWANDA VISITS PRESIDENTIAL PALACE MUSEUM.
The Institute of National Museums of Rwanda was on Monday 27th /10/ 2014 honored to host His Excellence Peter Fahrenholtz and the entire members of staff at the Germany embassy. They were received by the Museums' Director General Alphonse B. Umuliisa at the Presidential Palace Museum which served as a home to two former Presidents Juvenal Habyarimana and Pasteur Bizimungu during the 1970s up to 2000.
The two hours tour commenced with a general introduction about the Museum by Director General and the Museum staff members.The guests continued to the former Presidents' main house where they were given a detailed history of how these two presidents governed during their regime. His Excellence the Ambassador was amazed by the temporary exhibition in the former presidents' living room and applauded the Museums' Director General and his team for the great work done on such exhibition that explains the house in itself.
They later proceeded to visit some of the flight debris of the FALCON 50 presidential plane that went down on 6th April 1994, as the climax of the visit.
The Museums' Director General once again thanked His Excellence Amb. Peter Fahnreholtz and his team for having considered visiting the Museums.
The Ambassador also gave a vote of thanks to the Museums Director General and staff for the warm welcome offered as he promised to advocate for Rwanda Museums to all his fellow Ambassadors so that they may discover this significant history. He remarked that after the dark times Rwanda went through, he was amazed by the tremendous step the country has made and he is so optimistic Rwandans are heading for even a brighter future based on what he learned from the history of these two presidents and their residence.
It was a great bonding moment shared between the German Embassy team and the Rwanda Museums team. Once again, a great thank you to H.E . Ambassador Peter Fahrenholtz and the team.
