Africa Weekly – a round up of news and features from Africa

This week on Africa Weekly, we meet some of the Rwandans working tirelessly for reconciliation, 25 years after the country’s genocide, and we travel to a camp in Rwanda where former militiamen who took part in the killings have returned after years in exile. FOR SUBSCRIBERS OF AFRICA WEEKLY ONLY

Rwanda’s genocide past lies heavy on its youth

Young Rwandans, born during the 1994 genocide or soon after, speak of how this traumatic period has cast a shadow over their lives, despite the fact that they did not directly experience it. The two-thirds of the population born in the wake of the slaughter face a burden of their own, having grown up in the shadow of unspeakable atrocities, and carrying the weight of expectations of a brighter future.

Thomas: the Tutsi man reaching across ethnic divides in Rwanda

Reconciliation in Rwanda since the 1994 genocide has come about in part due to state policy, but also thanks to the courage of certain individuals who have been able to reach out across divides. Thomas is one such individual, a member of the persecuted Tutsi minority who has worked tirelessly for reconciliation in his village.

Rwanda’s genocide killers learn new life back home

At a camp beneath mist-shrouded volcanoes, dozens of men wander around, pondering their future lives. Some of these ex-militiamen took part in the killings during Rwanda’s horrific 1994 genocide against the Tutsi minority. They have now returned to Rwanda after years in exile, and live in a camp in order to become safely reintegrated into society.

In Rwanda, a spring turns source of reconciliation 25 years on

For years, the residents of the Giheta and Ruseke lived peacefully, sharing the same water source between the two villages. The horrors of the 1994 genocide changed all that, as Rwanda spiralled into horrific violence. 25 years on, the water source is bringing the once-divided villagers back together – a source of life and of reconciliation.

Rwanda. Women in Charge (Documentary Promo)

With the world’s first-ever female-majority parliament, Rwanda has been hailed as a role model for gender equality in Africa. Women have been at the forefront of the effort to rebuild the country following its 1994 genocide. Although they are now much more empowered, the reality is that many still struggle to complete their educations and find jobs. RTD spoke to both women in power and those in menial jobs to find out if gender equality has truly been achieved in Rwanda or whether it’s still a work in progress.
