Mausolee du Prince Louis Rwagasore serves as the final resting place of the country’s beloved 20th-century monarch and leader. For many locals, the prince symbolizes the spirit of fighting for one’s beliefs, inspiring crowds of supporters to visit his grave, inscribed in French with a motto that translates as “Unite, Work, Progress.” He formed a new political movement that fought for independence, and won the majority of votes in the election held in September 1961. He was forming a new government when he was shot dead only two weeks after the election. Nevertheless, his ideas lived on.
