Victims of Impunity: the other genocide of Rwanda

After the officially known Tutsi genocide of 1994 and Paul Kagame’s rise to power, hundreds of thousands of Rwandan Hutu were forced to flee their country for fear of extermination. Many of them, including children, women and the elderly, reached the former Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) on foot, where they tried to survive in inhumane conditions in the forests and refugee camps of the neighboring country. The RPF Tutsi army invaded Eastern Congo and carried out indiscriminate killings of the Hutu refugees with the excuse that there were murderers or genocides among them. Some lucky ones managed to survive after walking hundreds of kilometers for years. More than two decades later, the time has come to put names and surnames to their stories and their suffering.
