13. ABSTRACT (maximum 200 words)
In 1994 the Rwandan genocide stunned the international community. The brutality of its execution wasincomprehensible and defied one’s wildest imagination. Many authors contend that ethnic extremism coupled with politicalmanipulation were the primary factors behind this tragedy. Yet to oversimplify the cause of this tragedy makes one blind to thecomplicated nexus that generated the outcome. Even though this genocide was quick in its execution, the events that lead tothis massacre took years to unfold. The first violent clash between the Hutu and the Tutsi began in 1959. Historically therelationship between Hutus and Tutsis was harmonious until the advent of Belgian colonialism, which imposed a system that benefited the Tutsi and victimized the Hutu. The Hutu disaffection with the system did not immediately translate into conflict.It was only when they were educated about their misfortunes and inequities that they rose up violently against the injustice.Unfortunately, they perpetrated a ghastly butchery of innocents. The nature of the Rwandan society where people lived close toeach other, knew their neighbors very well, and had an element of blind obedience toward the authority served the agenda of the genocide perpetrators. These factors when compounded with intense competition for limited resources eventually led to theaforementioned tragedy

I hope that you did not misquote me.There is absolutely no connection whatsoever between Rwandan cyclical genocides and land scarcity.These genocides were perpetrated by Belgian colonial officials,Catholic priests and their local collaborators, the traitors of the Parmehutu.In its long history,land scarcity in Rwanda was never an issue.
