HE the President and RDF C-in-C went on underlining that the RDF roles and responsibilities are interlinked with the national commemoration of the Genocide against the Tutsi, a tragedy that must be prevented by all means to happen again.
The RDF C-in-C further urged Participants and the RDF community in general to maintain high standards of discipline, recalling that discipline has always been the main pillar the RDF is built on.
