Mukiza Emmanuel has many questions for his mother, Nyirasafari Leocadie, about her life before and after the war. Nyirasafari Leocadie describes her schooling, marriage, and raising children, and the hardships the family faced while living in exile. Mukiza Emmanuel is also eager to hear stories about his father and the grandfathers he never knew. Nyirasafari Leocadie tells him the lessons she learned from her father.

“During the war, I was then young. I would like to know about life during the war.” Mukiza Emmanuel

“Coming back from Zaire, we had nothing. We had lost all possessions and we had also lost people. I could not find my friends, and life had become very hard for me. Had it not been for the war, we would all be living a better life than today, because now we can’t even find what to feed you. That’s why today we are doing our best for our children to be educated. Such discussion sessions are very good for you to understand, and to do everything possible not to have this situation again because it destroys.” Nyirasafari Leocadie
