Gone Without a Trace

@ VOL 36 ON SEP 13, 2018

Sarah L. Rugwiro is going to share with us her story of the devastating loss she suffered when her husband Julius went missing in East Africa in 2015. He was an outspoken critic of the Rwandan President, Paul Kagame and specifically shedding light to the human rights violations being carried out against Hutu refugees of the Rwandan genocide. As soon as Julius arrived on African soil he vanished without a trace leaving behind a family with nothing but unanswered questions and only speculation of what became of him.
