carte-didentité rwanda

Africans have been wrongly categorized by Europeans. This is how the German and then Belgian settlers divided the baNyarwanda – a unique people belonging to the same kingdom, with the same language, the same culture and religion – through the socio-professional castes that composed it. They broke ties and skillfully pitted the Hutu working people against the Tutsi ruling caste, who previously lived in peace. This resulted in nearly 800,000 Tutsis and then 400,000 Hutus killed since the 1990s. (Picture: Rwandan identity card mentioning “ethnicity” even before the name. This Tutsi woman was killed)
