National Anthem of Rwanda (1962-2002)

Rwanda Rwacu (Our Rwanda) was the national anthem of Rwanda from 1962 to January 1, 2002, when it was replaced with "Rwanda Nziza". Lyrics: Rwanda rwacu, Rwanda gihugu cyambyaye, Ndakuratana ishyaka n'ubutwali. Iyo nibutse ibigwi wagize kugeza ubu, nshimira Abanyarwanda bacyu bazanye Repubulika idahinyuka. Bavandimwe b'uru Rwanda rwacu twese nimuhaguruke, Turubumbatire mu mahoro, mukuli, mu bwigenge no mu bwumvikane. Translation: My Rwanda, land that gave me birth, Fearlessly, tirelessly, I boast of you! When I recall your achievements to this very day, I praise the pioneers who have brought in our unshakeable Republic. Brothers all, sons of this Rwanda of ours, Come, rise up all of you, Let us cherish her in peace and in truth, In freedom and in harmony! Performed by Michael Sauser.
