    Same thing I just asked.
    Curious rule here: There is an exception to every rule.

    The above rule, if true, would mean it was true for each rule (as by it's own words it specifies "every rule"), thus becoming the exception to itself, thus further solidifying its own truth / validity / veracity.

    People from Kivu region, eastern Congo. They have had to endure much violence which unfortunately has not ceased yet.
















    Much of the conflict revolves around the socalled Banyamulenge.

    The Banyamulenge is a term historically describing the ethnic Tutsi Rwandans (Banyarwanda) concentrated on the High Plateau of South Kivu, in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), close to the Burundi-Congo-Rwanda border. The ambiguous political and social position of the Banyamulenge has been a point of contention in the province, leading to the Banyamulenge playing a key role in the run-up to the First Congo War in 1996-7 and Second Congo War of 1998-2003.

    The Banyamulenge form a minority of the South Kivu population. Rival ethnic groups in the late 1990s claimed the Banyamulenge numbered no more than 35,000, while the Banyamulenge sympathizers claim up to ten times that number. The population of Banyamulenge in the early 21st century is estimated at between 50,000 and 70,000 by René Lemarchand[1] or by Gérard Prunier at around 60,000-80,000, a figure about 3-4 percent of the total provincial population.[2][3]
    Lemarchand notes that the group represents "a rather unique case of ethnogenesis." The Banyamulenge of South Kivu are culturally and socially distinct from the Tutsis of North Kivu and the Tutsis who fled to South Kivu in the 1959-1962 Rwandan revolution. Most Banyamulenge do not speak Kinyarwanda, and those that do speak with a dialect different from other Tutsi groups.

    Wow! What a world we live in!! First of all, I like what Wikipedia says, most of it is true. Except, Banyamulenge being responsible of both Congo wars. That’s BS mn! It’s just other people that used our name as an excuse to do whatever they did. I assure u of that.

    Second, those pictures posted below the Wikipedia quote, are not Banyamulenge. The two soldiers are from north Kivu and have nothing to do with us. The rest are Tutsis I don’t know where they are from, except the last pic. Azarias Ruberwa, former vice-president, now minister of decentralization also serving as vice-prime minister. That one is Munyamulenge for sure.
