Land of a thousand hills
Rwanda is a nation that derives its history from the ancient kingdom of Rwanda that had the KAMEGERIS as their legitmate rulers or kings.
It should be noted that initially Rwanda kingdom had two clusters of people which were the Tusti (the leaders/cattle keepers & minority group). The Hutu (the subjects/the land tillers & majority group) though at later times a new group has been recognised from the bushy mountain regions known as the BATWA ( they are short/bushmen, feared to be an exitincting race).
This setting however came to die out in the late 50s after the scramble and partition for Africa.
Later on Rwanda was declared a French protectorate after the Belgians had failed to full get established there.
This therefore became a nation full established with boundaries, bordering Uganda in the north, DR Congo in the west, Tanzania, in the East and Burundi in the south.
