There's a Rwandan proverb: "A message is given to many, but those who are meant to understand, understand." There's always a subtext in Rwanda. You don't have to resort to brutal language. People understand. ~ Alison Des Forges

Rwanda, officially the Republic of Rwanda, is a country in Central and East Africa and one of the smallest countries on the African mainland. Located a few degrees south of the Equator, Rwanda is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
