Rwandan Genocide

Rwandan Genocide

Rwandan President, Juvenal Habyarimana, is killed when his plane is shot out of the sky. This is the official beginning of the Rwandan Genocide. The Hutu tribe begins to systematically slaughter the Tutsis. In 100 days, 800,000 Tutsis are slaughtered while most of the world looks the other way. Nine months earlier, visionary, Ivanka, in Medjugorje was shown a vision of the slaughter, of bodies floating down rivers turned red from so much blood. She screamed in anguish at the end of the apparition on June 25, 1993, saying, “horrible, horrible pictures,” as she ran out of her house running towards the Church. Nothing was said of this apparition, until after the events Rwanda unfolded.
