For years, people have studied and grieved over the horrible incidents that happened in Rwanda. Recent news has once again brought up the incident that the nation is still recovering from. According to BBC News, a suspect in the Rwanda genocide is being deported from the United States. This news has people once again looking into the incident and how this man is tied into it.

The news of this deportation arose on Tuesday. BBC News reports that Leopold Munyakazi is being deported. Munyakazi has been having a very difficult battle with court systems in order to gain asylum in the United States. The man was previously employed as a university professor and has some background as a scholar.

Munyakazi is alleged to have some very serious connections to the genocides. BBC news is reporting that not only has the man been accused of wearing banana leaves during the incident to identify himself as Hutu, but he has also been accused of participating in the organizing of night raids of Tutsi homes. He is also credited with writing an article in which he promotes giving Tutsi people only 10% representations in the job market and in the school systems. Munyakazi has continued to deny all of these allegations.

The genocide in Rwanda had drastic effects on the people of the area. Officials estimate that in just about 100 days, over 800,000 Tutsi people and their affiliates were slaughtered by the Hutu people during the genocide. BBC News is also reporting that after the incidents transpired, Munyakazi fled to the United States around 2004.

The genocide that transpired in Rwanda has continued to have  some drastic effects on the people of the nation as well as other people around the world. If the allegations against Mr. Munyakazi are true, his position in the United States or any other nation should definitely be called into question. As the people of Rwanda continue to heal, one can only hope that those guilty of the crimes will be brought to justice.
