Walking to mark every day of the Rwandan genocide

When Hyppolite Ntigurirwa was seven years old he saw his father killed during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. This year is the 25th anniversary of the genocide and Hyppolite has just completed 100 day walk across Rwanda. The 100 days represent each of the days that the massacres took place. He spoke to BBC Newsday's Shaimaa Khalil about why he started this journey.
