Since then President Paul Kagame continues to run the country with a strong authoritative hand, but victims and perpetrators are working and living peacefully and the economy is seeing rapid growth. Although the Hutus and Tutsis have yet to live in complete harmony, the people of Rwanda are using this time period as a backbone to change the country’s future. The Rwandan Genocide It is extremely difficult for a small country to become recognized worldwide, but for Rwanda, an East African country about the size of Maryland, it took a three month genocide. Between the months of April and June of 1962, over eight hundred thousand Rwandans were killed. Neighbors turned against each other and women were captured and sold as sex slaves.
In 1994 in Rwanda, approximately 800,000 men, women, and children were brutally massacred within 100 days. It is estimated that in four months, 1.75 million people, or a quarter of the country 's pre-war population, had either died or fled the country. In Rwanda, they were three ethnic groups formed by the Germans, the Hutu, the Tutsi, and the Twa. The Hutu made up 84 percent of the population, the Tutsi 14 percent, and the Twa only occupied 1 percent. My ethnic conflict is about the Rwanda Genocide that happened in April 1994 in Rwanda.
Although more groups of soldiers were sent in to Rwanda it was not fast enough. The UN and the OAU were both pushing for more needed equipment but supplies did not come quick enough (Rwanda,2006).”The aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide was very despicable. The effect that the genocide posed on the people of Rwanda is immeasurable.The people were tortured and terrorized as they saw those they love die and feared the loss of their own life. “It is estimated that nearly 100,000 children were orphaned, abducted or abandoned. Twenty-six percent of the Rwandan population still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder today (Enough
Rwandan Genocide Genocide is still a major problem in our world today. Genocide is the mass murder of one group of people by another group of people. The genocide in Rwanda, Africa was one of the worst cases in African history. The genocide in Rwanda, Africa started on April 7th 1994 and ended in July of 1994.There were several causes and many people involved with horrific outcomes in the Rwandan genocide. There were several causes leading to the genocide in Rwanda.
Tens of thousands died from malaria, starvation, and mass murder by the military. 2) Genocidal aid In the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the work of humanitarian aid workers prolonged the ethnic cleansing of the Tutsi [toot-see] people, by providing protection to the Hutu [hoo-too] killers. When a military campaign eventually ended the genocide, 2 million Hutus - including those that committed genocide - fled across the Rwandan border into the neighboring country, then known as Zaire. Huge refugee camps were assembled in Zaire, which quickly became militarized by Hutu extremists. The Hutus commenced a second campaign of ethnic extermination, which led to another outbreak of war and the death of tens of thousands of refugees.
I am deeply honored to be a part of this event. I speak on behalf of the international student committee of Pune. On this day, we stand with the people of Rwanda to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. Around one million people were slaughtered during the violence: which was a culmination of longstanding ethnic tensions between the minority Tutsi and majority Hutu people. Two decades on, survivors and perpetrators are still healing from the trauma left by the genocide.
As Rwanda is a country the capital city is Kigali. Kigali is actually one of the cleanest and largest city. Rwanda’s history was a very sad part time. In 1994 there was this devastating genocide that happened between to tribes in Rwanda. A genocide is when there is a killing of many people especially in particular groups about their religion or race or nationality etcetera and when the killing is the intent to wipe out or remove that type
In the 1990s the UN was involved, through action or inaction, in a number of humanitarian interventions. It started with the creation of a safe haven in Iraq for the Kurds and the decade ended with Australian intervention in East Timor. The lack of effective action in Rwanda leading to the killing of 800000 people in 100 days has means that very few people today support a complete non-interventionist approach. It is more or less agreed upon that humanitarian intervention can be justifiable in the extreme circumstances to end massive human suffering . After Rwanda the main cause for concern and debate has been about who should intervene and when.
These people became internally displaced persons in their own country as a result of the violence. Many fled their homes after their homes were destroyed, their loved ones killed and their property destroyed or looted. After the 1994, Rwandan genocide, thousand of Tutsis and moderate Hutus fled Rwanda and sought refuge in the neighboring countries like Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi and Tanzania. Victims of forced migration take long before they gain the confidence of going back to their home countries even after their countries have
