The Angels Have Left Us

The Rwanda Tragedy and the Churches

By Hugh McCullum

It’s now the five years since the mind-shattering tragedy of Rwanda when the world awoke one morning to witness on its tv screens one of the worst massacres in human history. No one, as yet knows the exact number of the dead, but the estimated figure is given as one million people. This was due to ethnic fighting between the Hutu’s and Tutsi’s. Only now, some five years later, are the real causes being clarified.

In his carefully researched book, The Angels Have Left Us, Hugh McCullum, who was a journalist in Rwanda, tries to uncover the causes and what he has discovered is not very pleasant.
