Why was Rwanda Colonized?
Just as with the rest of the African continent, it was colonized by the European powers for the purpose of empire (money, expansion of global influence, to "civilize" the "dark continent"). I believe Rwanda's cash crop was coffee... Germany ruled Rwanda until WW1, then the territory was handed over to Belgium, then independence from Belgium in the 1960s.
