About the book - Rwanda: One Boy's Journey
Patrick Rukundo Tabaro was twelve years old when the aircraft in which Rwandan president, Juvénal Habyarimana, and Burundian president, Cyprien Ntaryamira were travelling, was shot down. He recalls that day as though it were yesterday.
In this autobiography, RWANDA: One Boy's Journey, the author recalls the events that led up to the assassination, as well as some of the bloodiest events that followed in the late 20th century. He relives the plane crash, the Rwandan Genocide and the First Congo War through the eyes of a child, standing amidst the bodies of his friends.
Read this first-hand account of how the author became a child refugee, and later returned home to post-genocide Rwanda, where he would become a man. Be carried along his journey in search of literacy, hope for a brighter future, and ultimately, himself.
In RWANDA: One Boy's Journey, Patrick Rukundo Tabaro shares his heart as he relives the events with remarkable composure in this easy-to-read work.
"I have seen life before and after the Rwandan crisis. I have learnt how to create a peaceful environment and know what it takes to rebuild a once fragmented life without depending on foreign aid. I would be haunted forever if I kept quiet about what I know."
