Dr. Salim reflects on a difficult year in his Africa Day message.
"The tragic events which led to massacres and genocide in Rwanda last year continue to haunt our collective conscience, not only as Africans, but as humanity at large. Today Rwanda is struggling to regain its feet. The OAU and International Community are helping the Government and people of that country, re-establish mutual confidence, promote national reconciliation and move on to the vexing as well as resource demanding problem of rehabilitation and reconstruction." - Dr. Salim, May 25, 1995
