Hutu (Haters) vs. Tutsi (Victims)

  • The Belgians ruled over Rwanda since the 1800’s.

  • Tutsi’s were favored by the Belgian government.

    • They were given gov’t jobs and were supposed to rule over Rwanda for the Belgians.

  • After the Independence movement the Belgians left and the Hutu’s took over.

  • Hutu’s wanted to get back at the Tutsi’s for years of oppression under Belgian rule.

  • Hutu’s began systematically killing off the Tutsi’s after the President of Rwanda’s plane was shot down.

  • Hutu’s blamed the Tutsi’s.

  • Hutu’s organized a killing squad known as the Interhamawe.

  • The Interhamawe went around killing the Tutsi’s, trying to wipe them out.
