Civility Comes to Rwanda

The genocide came to an end because of the victory of the RPA, a majority Tutsi army. How did you react to that?

At the beginning when the genocide ended, we were so shocked. We thought if we had killed that we would be killed, but instead they gave us the best treatment. We got water, food, showers. We were never mistreated. We live in the best way, unlike the survivors—we watched films about how the others were treated. People who say the government of Rwanda is bad are wrong. If you’re sick, you get medicine. We can’t visit our families, but they can visit us.”
