Soccer in Kigali

Soccer in Kigali

Last week, I had to take pictures of a man found guilty of organizing one of the massacres in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.
I was reminded of a journey that took me to the country a couple of years ago, leaving also a lot of positive memories. This shot that I found in my archives shows a boy playing soccer on the outskirts of Rwanda’s capital Kigali with a self-fabricated ball, wearing an old Colorado Buffaloes sweatshirt.

A former mayor of a city in Rwanda sits in a coutroom in Frankfurt, Feb.18, shortly before being sentenced to 14 years in jail for organizing one of the massacres in the 1994 genocide. This was was the first case heard in Germany related to the genocide in Rwanda.
