Rwanda Twenty Years After The Genocide


Twenty years ago, on April 6, 1994, the country of Rwanda was cleaved apart after the Presidents of Burundi and Rwanda were killed in a plane crash. Revenge killings engulfed the two tiny countries south of Lake Victoria with Hutus murdering minority Tutsis.

In 100 days more than a million people had been killed and the world was left grappling to stop the massacre that changed everything in Rwanda.

Over the last two decades the country has changed beyond recognition. While it still has a long way to go, the country has witnessed improvements in health, sanitation, financial inclusion, water and agriculture have been extraordinary, much of it arising from a mobile phone revolution, Al -jazeera reported.
