It is well known in Rwanda that ethnic tribes coexisted peacefully before the genocide. Kaberuka Anatole explains to his grandson Mulima Nyautabana Yves about how the colonial regime worked to turn tribes against one another, cultivating hatred and jealousy in order to maintain control and exploit Rwanda. In a history tale that begins before Belgian rule, Kaberuka Anatole shows how the colonial regime treated the country like playing a game of cards.

"Tribes were there even before this scandal took place. Rwandese were generally united without any bias...Tutsis, Twas, and Hutus were all equal people. They shared and intermarried without regarding their tribes. There was not anything like a Hutu, Twa, or Tutsi in front of the king who reigned at that time. They were each given different tasks, and whoever accomplished his or her task was rewarded and promoted." Kaberuka Anatole

"What did whites use or do to separate Rwandese? Because as I heard from you, it seems that Rwandese were strongly united, so am wondering how they parted them." Mulima Nyautabana Yves
