In June 1898 he stayed at the court of the King of Rwanda from where he finally discovered the source of the Nile in Rwanda in August 1898. Later he settled at Shangi in the shores of Lake Kivu from where he thoroughly discovered the extent of Rwanda.

In 1902, he returned to Germany. In 1904, he published his book “Caput Nile-a sensitive Journey to the Source of the River Nile». It was reprinted in 1991.

In 1905 he returned to Rwanda to continue with his research. By 1906 he had identified the Headquarter of Kigali  in Gakinjiro on Nyarugenge hill as his residence. A year later, it doubled as his headquarters when he was appointed the first colonial Resident Governor of Rwanda in 1907 a position he held up to May 1916 when the Belgium troops occupied Kigali bringing an end to the 22 years of Germany colonial rule.

In 1908, he named his headquarters Kigali, after the nearby Mt. Kigali, hence the name of the capital city. It was officially gazetted on 19th October 1908. 

  • Kigali Genocide memorial Center

This tour is almost the existing one, it starts at RDB city center, to facilitate start from the old part of the city then the Army Street because we had an army school on this same street where we have KHI( Kigali health institute) and Kist(Kigali Institute of science and technology, both of them are new schools.

The tour talks about Education starting from the 3 universities we had before the genocide and goes 27 Universities recognized by the government of Rwanda.

This tremendous change was among the target of the government of the unified Rwanda after the genocide, on the top we had the unity and reconciliation, Education, health and infrastructure etc…

Apart of universities that are built, we have as well primary and secondary schools but also the system was poor before the genocide e.g. the education was allowed to one group of the population as majority, then the country was a French speaking country, today , switched to French and English, all Rwandans share one country, education belong to all of them as they are all equal in all spheres, and the country pays for its children from P1 to S4, this made the number of educated people in Rwanda from 23% to 60% in 16 years,
