In that atmosphere...
what was it like to be an ordinary Tutsi in the villages of Rwanda?
What did they think of the jokes and threats from the local troublemakers?
“That bunch was famous on the hill for their carousing and tomfoolery. Those fellows did not seem so bad... But when they had been drinking, they took sport in spreading misunderstandings and wicked words from cabaret to cabaret.
They used to scoff at the Tutsis and promise them serious retaliation, although they never laid hands on them... Among ourselves, we felt that gang was growing dangersome.” (Clementine, survivor)
