They were not killers by nature, but somehow they turned in to cold blooded killers in the blink of an eye. The men tell of their first murders in detail, such as whom and how they killed, but only…

And, while the rise of the RPF may have been due to Hutu expulsion of Tutsi’s as a result of colonization, it is clear Habyarimana was not a leader capable of holding a country together.

The Rwanda government changed the way it identified people, from an ethnic identifier to a genocidal identifier. According to Zorbas, “Dropping the ethnic labels in favor of a ‘genocide…
