The story of the individuals that masterminded the Rwandan genocide, one of the worst atrocities of the late twentieth century, has yet to be told. But now, with newly discovered documents, first-person interviews and secret intelligence reports, it is possible to get to the very heart of the dreadful events of 1994. In this book, Andrew Wallis pieces together, for the first time, the role of the Rwandan akazu (meaning 'little house'), the hidden group, consisting primarily of the friends and family of assassinated president Juvenal Habyarimana, which planned the ethnic cleansing of one million Tutsis. He shows how the group organised the mass killings as a way to cling on to a power they had become fixated with and traces the long-term history of the genocide - from the time that Habyarimana took power in a 1973 coup to the genocide. In doing so, this book provides an important new history of the genocide and a vital insight into what really happened in those fateful months of early 1994.
