THE DEATH OF THE LAST QUEEN OF RWANDA 🇷🇼 (1928-1994)

On April 20, 1994 at around 11am, a detachment of soldiers invaded the home of Queen Gicanda where they abducted her and six others but left behind her bed-ridden mother.

They took Gicanda and the others behind the Ethnographic Museum where they were killed. Before her execution she begged the killers to not use machetes, they respected her wish. They mercilessly shot her 4 bullets in her chest!

The Queen was a living symbol for Tutsis, and her murder shocked many. It effectively signaled the beginning of the mass killing of Tutsi people in the southern province of Rwanda.
