Both Hutu and Tutsi of Rwanda Should Apologise to Batwa

The Rwandan society is never visually communicated well by Artists because everything in Rwanda has been distorted to fit the Hutu and Tutsi narrative that has hijacked the true Rwandan culture. 

The other main big problem with today's Rwanda is the lack of creative minded people and the knowledge of their true story - those that are historically known for their creativity- the Batwa people; have been neglected, abused and denied the right to live a dignified life in their ancestral land. The loss of a creative culture through a systematic discriminative policy of the Batwa by both the Tutsi and Hutu respectively, has led to Batwa genocide and a cultural identity crisis in Rwanda. The descendants of Batwa of Japan are doing well when it comes to creativity, because Japanese have not carried out a discriminative policy.

But, he can’t even pardon political prisoners on bogus charges, because he is too drunk with power.
