MYCOTOXIN BIOWEAPON IN RWANDA AND THE SHODDY RESEARCH BY THE MAKERERE UNIVERSITY

A sea of skulls after the Rwandan genocide: Apart from journals and investigation by scientists, the book 'The Shadow of the Sun' by Polish writer Ryszard Kapuscinski, reveals that Belgium is responsible for the Rwanda genocide.


"Mycotoxin which causes aggressiveness was used in Rwanda during the genocide. The substance made the Belgian soldiers urinated on the faces of dead Hutus. We haven't forgotten that!!"

The Rwandan genocide is historically one of the shortest yet also bloodiest genocides of all time. The genocide lasted only 100 days, but in that short time span, an estimated of 500,000-1,000,000 people were killed. 

In the small Central African country of Rwanda, there was a deep running history of tension between the two major ethnic groups; the Hutus and the Tutsis. When the Belgian colonists settled in Rwanda in 1916, they created identity cards that specified the two ethnicity groups. 

The Belgians originally considered the Tutsis superior to the Hutus. The Belgians found it easier to enforce Tutsi superiority because they were the majority population. But when  Belgium granted Rwanda their independence in 1962, they left something behind to ruin the country after the Hutus took over.

Most striking is the fact that two years before the outbreak of the genocide, the U.N. deployed 2,500 troops in Rwanda. They observed the tension and informed the international community of the massacre that would surely occur.

In August of 1994, the Tutsi RPF group led by Kagame retook the capital and soon after, the rest of the country, ending the genocide. When the Hutus discovered their reign had ended they feared Tutsi backlash and about 2 million Hutus fled the country into neighboring countries such as Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zaire, taking their man-made diseases with them.
