ALARM’s story began in 1994 at the end of the Rwandan Genocide, when Celestin’s home country was in its darkest days. Musekura was attending seminary in Nairobi, Kenya, in April 1994 when he heard on CNN about war breaking out in Rwanda. At first, Musekura thought it was merely a continuation of a long standing conflict between rebel fighters of the Tutsi people, one of the main tribal groups in Rwanda, and Hutu tribesmen whose leaders dominated the country’s politics. It soon became clear that something much more horrific was unfolding—with devastating speed.
