Frontier Stories: Banyamulenge

The Banyamulenge are nomadic pastoralists who arrived in Rwanda from the north, in search of good grazing pasture. They then moved into Eastern Congo, where they settled in the South Kivu Province. Continually marginalized, they became displaced after the Congolese revoked their citizenship in 1996. Later, they were forced to go to the Gatumba UN refugee camp in Burundi for protection. Here, a massacre took place, on the 13th of August, 2004. This film tells the Banyamulenge’s story.
