After the officially known as Tutsi genocide in 1994 and the arrival of Paul Kagame in power, thousands of Hutus were forced to leave their country for fear of being exterminated. Many of them, among them children, women and the aged, got to Zaire (today the Democratic Republic of Congo), on foot where they strove to survive in infrahuman conditions in the forests and refugee camps. The Tutsi army, RPF, invaded Eastern Congo and embarked on indiscriminate killings of the Hutus with the excuse that there were killers among them. Some of them managed to survive after walking hundreds of kilometers for years. Over two decades later, the time has come to identify the victims. We are working on the documentary entitled ‘Hutus and Victims, surviving in the Eastern Congo’.
