20th anniversary of the beginning of the Rwanda genocide

(Genocide launch date: 7 April 1994)
Rwanda central government in Kigali and allies embark on the genocide of the Tutsi in Rwanda in which 800, 000, one-fifth of the population, are murdered – this genocide would probably have been prevented if Africa, particularly, and the rest of the world had stopped the Igbo genocide, the foundational genocide of post-(European)conquest Africa, which was carried out by Nigeria and its allies 28 years earlier, 29 May 1966-12 January 1970, resulting in the murder of 3.1 million Igbo or one-quarter of this nation’s population; a total of 15.1 million Africans have been murdered in all the genocides in Africa (Igbo, Rwanda, the Sudan [Darfur/Nuba Mountains/South Kordofan], Zaïre/Democratic Republic of the Congo) and in other wars across the continent since 29 May 1966
