Overview – Rwanda

Rwanda’s History as Rwanda Safari Product

Rwanda’s History

Rwanda’s History

Rwanda was a monarchical Kingdom right from the pre-colonial era with three tribal groups namely the Bahutu who were the majority 85%, the Batutsi 14% and Batwa who comprised 1%. These people had different modes of livelihood as the Tutsi were cattle keepers, the Batwa were cultivators while the Twa were hunter gatherers. The Kingship was in the hands of the Batutsi and the leadership was hereditary. Since there were no overlapping interests, the traditional Rwanda was at peace and these three tribal groups despite the distinct differences, they lived together in the society harmoniously. These tribal groups are noted to have varying ethnic origins with the Bahutu belonging to the Bantu group while the Tutsi belonged to the Hamitic groups from the north east of Africa. The Batwa are indigenous to the region of East Africa.

The political history commences with King Rwabugiri’s reign that ascended the throne in the year 1860 and expanded the Kingdom as far as the present state of Rwanda on a feudal arrangement. In the period 1887 – 1914, the traditional highlands of Rwanda became of interest to the Europeans and in the year 1894, Count Von Götzen a German national visited the court of Rwabugiri. Unfortunately, the King passed away the following year and the succession turmoil had to arise and the Germans took advantage of the situation and conquered Rwanda in addition to Burundi forming the Ruanda- Urundi territory for their mighty Kaiser. The German rule did not last long as her colonies were taken from it following its defeat in the World War 1 1914 – 18 a decision that was taken in the hall of mirrors in France under the Versailles Settlement of 1919. The Belgians took over until 1962 following the League of Nations resolution in 1924 that granted Belgium the responsibility of managing the colony. However, it should be noted that the Belgian were already in Congo with the center of administration in Brussels. When Ruanda – Urundi was added, the administration was left in the hands of the Tutsi as it was traditionally and took advantage of the differences in these two major tribal groups. The colonialists introduced forced labor targeting the Hutu as the workers but put the Tutsis as their supervisors which spoilt the relations between these two local groups without realizing who exactly the enemy was.

In the year 1993, every individual in Rwanda was required to have an identity card showing the tribe. The relations between these two groups worsened in the 1950s and the few educated Hutus started to mobilize against the Tutsi culminating into the 1959 Rwandan Revolution which put many Tutsis in exile including the then reigning Mwami Kigeri who was 25 years old then. Elections were conducted in the process of preparing Rwanda for independence and Gregory Kibanda emerged the winner and was one of the Hutu manifesto authors. He led the provisional government up to the independence time. However, in the neighboring Urundi, the Tutsi managed to persist and a joint Tutsi and Hutu party won the 1961 elections under the leadership of Prince Rwagasore who was Mwami’s eldest son. Though he was assassinated a little time after, the incident did not lure Burundi into an ethnic conflict. In the year 1962, Rwanda attained her independence and it became a republic and it was when the name changed from Ruanda to Rwanda. However, Urundi maintained a constitutional monarchy but name also changed to Burundi. Gregory Kaibanda under his Party for the Emancipation of the Hutu (Parti du Mouvement de l’Emancipation du Peuple Hutu) won the first Presidential election and by the name of the party, one can tell what his government policy would focus on.

The entire country was in control by August 1994 since RPF had captured Kigali in July. The issues of Interahamwe making attacks from the neighboring Congo have been dealt with overtime and some other extremists still exist the Congo forests. The RPF has tried to build an all-inclusive nation with equal representation in government where numerical strength is given priority. And as a result, Rwanda has rejuvenated and re-built her image in the international scene ensuring economic flourish, social cohesion and political stability. The international travellers have increasingly picked interests in Rwanda safaris especially the Rwanda gorilla trekking safaris and the future for Rwanda looks much brighter than it’s past. The memorial sites are spread all over the country as living testimonies of their history. Find More about Rwanda Gorilla Safaris

Rwanda Genocide Memorial Centers

Rwanda Genocide Memorial

Rwanda Genocide Memorial

The tribalistic movement that Kaibanda had initiated branded the Tutsi as cockroaches – the Inyenzi and the killing of cockroaches was not too far to occur in this land of a thousand hills. In the month of December 1963, the hundreds of Tutsi attempted to enter Rwanda out of nostalgia from the southern section through Burundi. When they had advanced remaining with 12miles to the country’s capital, the army stopped them and the government was forced to declare a state of emergency aiming at clearing the bush of the subversive features and within a count of days, over 14,000 Tutsis were put to death in Gikongoro in the southern province in the move that was branded by Bertrand Russel as “the most horrible and systematic massacre” since the Holocaust. However, this was far minor than what the Hutu would come to achieve in the 1990s. The president Kaibanda was toppled through a military coup by Juvenal Habyarimana in the year 1973 and the new president ruled for 21 years presiding over a complete military dictatorship with support from Western states especially France. The ethnic policy continued and the number of Tutsi refugees in the neighboring states became too much and their host countries opted to send them back home and yet at home they were not welcome. In the year 1986, Habyarimana made it clear that the refugees were no longer allowed to return home and in the year that followed, the refugees hatched the idea of Rwanda Patriotic Front which was to launch an armed struggle against the reigning Rwandan government so as to get the means of getting back home. On the date which they had earlier planned October 1st 1990, the participants most of which were serving officers and men in the Ugandan Army and had actively participated in the NRA guerilla war that brought Gen. Yoweri Museveni in power deserted along with other equipment and launched an invasion from the north west of Rwanda. The incident started as a small invasion but saw the overthrow of the Habyarimana government. Unfortunately, they provoked the most horrific genocide act of the century.

The first invasion was repulsed by Habyarimana with the help of the French Paratroops that were extended by President Mitterand in October 1990. This was followed by the tough times for the Tutsis. The Rwanda’s most racial newspaper published the ten (10) commandments and some of these called for the complete separation of the Hutu from the Tutsi to ruthless hand upon them. In fact like the commandment eight read “the Hutu should stop having mercy on Tutsis” and this gave birth to the Hutu power in 1991. The president Habyarimana supported the Hutu power and recruited the Hutu militia who were named Interahamwe literally translated to those who attack together. This group exhibited extreme hooliganism in the name of the President including conducting drunken meetings in public. They also met in private to perfect the skills of machete wielding, setting houses ablaze and listing the Tutsi names and the Hutu moderators. As if that was not enough, the Radio Rwanda spread a false rumor in March 1992 that the Tutsi had the plot to exterminate the Hutu. In the same year, the Hutu extremists were disappointed by their own president who out of international pressure embarked on negotiations other than suppressing the guerrillas. In august 1992, when the news spread that the president agreed for a cease fire, the Hutu made attacks on the Tutsi. The peace process continued taking the president far from the Hutu power move and in August 1993 the President Habyarimana signed the Peace treaty with the Rwanda Patriotic Front to put the war to the end. The highlights of the Arusha Peace Accord included the refugee return, the incorporation of RPF in the national Army, the transitional process that would lead into elections and establishment of a democratic government and in this period the power was to be in the hands of the provisional government with good representation of RPF and the United Nations forces were to come to make sure that the situation was in order. It should be noted that these terms were a total disappointment to the Hutu extremists and on April 6th 1994 the presidential jet was brought down by a rocket believed to have been released by the Hutu extremists leading to the death of 2 presidents Habyarimana and his Burundi counterpart. This occurrence sparked off the genocide. The Hutu extremism exploded over the next weeks and the radio broadcasts called upon all the Hutus to look out for the Tutsis and eliminate them. The State Radio announced on 29th April that 5th May should be the cleaning day and that the city of Kigali should be cleaned up of the Tutsis. In fact one broadcast went ahead and emphasized that even the unborn babies should be ripped from their mothers’ wombs even if their mothers are dead. The Hutu using their ordinary tools like the Machettes and other advanced weapon for the military were able to put down over 800,000 Tutsis and the Hutu sympathizers between April and July. This was followed by massive refugee influx mostly by the Hutus to Tanzania, Zaire and Burundi in fear of the advancing Rwanda Patriotic Front which had resumed the fighting following the President’s assassination.
