Not completely, but what is true is that the radio did play a huge part in the Rwandan genocide as people were encouraged over the radio to keep on killing the Tutsis.
    When the Belgians had control, they appointed the Tutsis to have power over the Hutu. That segregation led to the build up of anger and conflict. When the Beligians left, the Tutsis lost power and the Hutus took revenge on them by starting mass genocide.
Most of the killing was done with machettes, and an estimated 800,000 victims were slaughtered in 3 months. This means that the view that killing on the scale and speed of the Holocaust was only possible in an industrial society, using industrial means, needs rethinking carefully.
Rwanda has previously been colonised by Germany, who first arrived to Rwanda in 1897 and took control over it soon after. In 1989, Belgium seized Rwanda from Germany in 1916 after the defeat of Germany in World War I.
many tutsis were killed with ma-shine guns and machetes and thousands of women were raped the hutus. The radio was used to encourage ordinary people to attack tutsis.
