Rwandans were mostly Hutu and Tutsi peoples formed many years ago. In 1916 Germany colonized Rwanda after World War 1 and gave the land to Belgium. Then on July 1, 1962 Belgium granted Rwanda it's independence. From 1962-1990 there was a lot of fighting between the Hutus and Tutsis and the Hutus drove almost all of the Tutsis out. Then in 1994 the Tutsis came back, killed the Rwandan President and 100 days of genocide started killing more than 800,000 people both Tutsi and Hutu. Paul Kagame, leader of the Tutsi's ended the mass killing and then became the president of Rwanda in 2000.

He saved Rwanda by ending these many days of killing. Paul Kagame has been called "Rwanda's Greatest Success Story."
