Gen. Charles-Henri Delcour

Gen. Charles-Henri Delcour, the Belgian Chief of Defence, is expected in the country tomorrow on a two-day official visit.

The visit aims to strengthen ties between the two countries’ defence forces, according to officials.

While in Rwanda, General Delcour will hold talks with his Rwandan counterpart, Lt. Gen. Charles Kayonga – the RDF Chief of Defence Staff – among others.

“General Delcour and his team will also visit Zigama CSS, Rwanda Military Hospital, after which they will lay wreaths at Camp Kigali (memorial for Belgian peacekeepers killed during the Genocide against the Tutsi) and Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre,” a statement from Ministry of Defence read in part.
