Rwanda's Paul Kagame
April 7, 2014
by Dominic Nahr
This month marks the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, that saw over 800,000 people - mostly ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus – killed by Hutu extremists in 1994. In July 1994 the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), a Tutsi rebel group, lead by Paul Kagame ended the killings by military victory in Rwanda. Kagame has since been the father of Rwanda, first serving as Vice President and Minister of Defense, and since 2000, as President of Rwanda.

These images were taken in Rwanda and Uganda, where Dominic Nahr had unprecedented access into President Paul Kagame’s work and personal life.
