The Rwandan akazi (forced labour) system, history, and humiliation

The article examines the Rwandan history and its relationship to the employment of humiliation. According to the author, social inequalities had persisted even before Belgium took control of Rwanda. The ranks of society were based on the proprietorship of cows. With the introduction of forced labor, The Belgian authorities convinced the people that no differences existed between services rendered and forced labor. But, the Hutu was forced to submit to the humiliation of forced labor under the Tutsis. As a result, genocide followed and created the most tragic catastrophe of death, misery, and humiliation that the Hutus could inflict on the Tutsis.
