Rwanda gorilla safari company – History of Rwanda In April 1994, as the world’s media was focusing its attention on the election of Nelson Mandela, and the end of South Africa’s apartheid, something terrible was happening in Rwanda. This tiny East African country, with a population of approximately 12 million as of 2016, was the centre of the world’s most barbaric, bloodiest and cruelest massacre that left over 1 million minority Tutsi and moderate Hutus dead.
The violence was sparked by a plane carrying Rwanda’s president, Juvénal Habyarimana, and Burundi President, Cyprien Ntaryamira, being shot down in Kigali, killing both presidents. The mass slaughter left a trail of destruction bringing Rwanda to its knees as many innocent souls lost their lives. After the genocide, Rwanda’s fragile economy was completely destroyed, impoverishing the entire population.
However, Rwanda has risen from the ashes, and its remarkable story of recovery and hope has inspired the entire globe. More than two decades later, Rwanda is not only a success story on the African continent, but a perfect example for other war-ravaged countries globally to borrow a leaf from. The country has made substantial progress in developing its economy and strengthening the social fabric.
