Rwanda

City of Kigali

By: April Hughes


In 1994 Kigali was the epicenter of the deadly Rwandan genocide which broken
out during a long civil war between the Tutsi and Hutu. Men, women, and children were
brutally murdered and the few Tutsi surviors were left to pick up the pieces of their
culture.
Kigali’s Genocide Museum holds a portrait memorial of the just of the few of
the estimated one million victims killed in 1994. This touching memorial was opened
in April of 2004, marking the 10th year anniversary of the horrendous event.
Even though Rwanda’s capital city of Kigali is focused on becoming more developed and
technologically based through the establishment of industries, an overwhelming majority of citizens
living in the country live off of subsistence farming. Just outside the city limits rural villages like the
one shown above are the center of Rwandan daily life.
