Kigali, February 4, 2021, Hooza Media has launched Hooza Podcast, a mobile podcast application available on Android and IoS.
Hooza Podcast is downloadable under the following link https://hoozapodcast.glideapp.io
The application is free and the content offered is free to access.
On the occasion of this launch, Hooza Media is set to broadcast the audio version of the book « Bisesero, le Ghetto de Varsovie Rwandais » by French writer Serge Farnel.
The book was published in 2014 and it will be read by the author in Hooza Media studios.
This audiobook will be available in 15-minute episodes published every 2 days on the platform, allowing listeners to continue listening to this story directly and for free on their phones for several weeks.
Testimonies from genocide survivors in Bisesero will also be posted online to allow listeners to be fully occupied and to help them better understand this so sensitive part of the history of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
With each of these podcasts, a button will allow listeners to make a donation to foundations chosen for their determination, both to help survivors of the genocide and to fight against any form of denial against this genocide.
This approach is non-profit and aims to reach French-speaking communities in Rwanda, Africa and around the world.

About Serge Farnel:
French engineer (aeronautics and space), professor and writer, Serge Farnel devotes ten years of his life to fighting, as a journalist, against denial of the genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
Invited by the CNLG (National Commission for the Fight Against Genocide), then headed by Jean de Dieu Mucyo, to speak in April 2009 on the occasion of the 15th international symposium, he took the opportunity to collect testimonies that put him on the track of an active participation of whites in the biggest anti-Tutsi massacre: that of May 13, 1994 in Bisesero.
To fully document the testimonies, Jean de Dieu Mucyo and Tharcisse Karugarama (then Rwandan Minister of Justice) encouraged him to return to continue his investigation, which Farnel did in the presence of a journalist from the Wall Street Journal.
The site www.bisesero.net gathers information relating to Serge Farnel’s investigation.
