Kibeho a small village in Nyaruguru District-Rwanda, is known as a place of apparition where the Virgin Mary appeared in the Southern province of Rwanda, roughly 3 and half hours’ drive.She is said to have appeared to three girls Alphonsine Mumureke, a nun in France, Marie Claire Mukangango, who was killed in the 1994 genocide, and Nathalie Mukamazimpaka, who stays at the Kibeho Shrine.
Kibeho was the site of an internally displaced person (IDP) refugee camp, with many of the Hutu refugees suspected of having participated in the genocide. The camp was the largest in Rwanda, spreading 9 square kilometers and containing between 80,000 and 100,000 people. In mid – April 1995, elements of the Tutsi – led Rwandan Patriotic Army (RPA), announced they would close the camp, with the aim of forcibly separating known Genocidaires from those who would be sent home.
As the camp was closed, tensions mounted and RPA troops opened fire on some of the remaining refugees. Australian and Zambian troops of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR) and staff from Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) witnessed the massacre.
Many of these were killed in the same school in which the apparitions had occurred ; one of the children who reported the vision was even one of the victims. The local bishop, accused by many of complicity in the genocide himself, recognized officially on June 29, 2001 three cases as authentic. The church Notre-Dame des Douleurs (Our Lady of Sorrows) was built in Kibeho, supported by Pallottines.
Kibeho became officially a ‘Holy Land’ and a place of pilgrimage in 2001 after the Roman Catholic Church had declared the apparitions. That is why pilgrims travel to Kibeho to implore God’s mercy, seek His protection or pray for solutions to thank God and the Virgin Mary for their lives.
