Description

Modern Rwanda was part of the colonial Belgian Empire before independence. Unfair ethnic interactions that had endured for centuries were exploited by the Belgians for the convenience of government and business. The tensions developed into the famous hundred days of genocide. The genocidiers got so involved in their killing that the rebels rolled right over them and forced them out of the country. Now the government is ruthlessly forcing people to be nice to each other. Seems in some ways to be working.
