The East African nation of Rwanda has come a long way since a horrific genocide 16 years ago resulted in the death of around 800,000 Tutsis, as well as “moderate” Hutus who opposed the genocidaires. President Paul Kagame’s Tutsi-dominated government has achieved economic, political, and military stability at a time when many surrounding governments face major crises. Many Western admirers look at the Rwandan president as a model leader in the developing world. Martin Savidge hosts journalist and author Stephen Kinzer and human rights activist Noel Twagiramungu to discuss post-genocide politics, ethnic divisions, regional rivalries, and Obama's policies in the region.
