Different Types of Judgement
Lies are always changing, the truth stays the same. Different people in the world sometimes say or hear something untrue about their country, life or religion; however, it is terrifying to hear it. This buzz is the signs of the lack of information on the country or life or religion. A stereotype is an idea about generalization of different types of things. The people can stereotype on different things, such as country, religion, or life. Rwanda has stereotypes that most people from all around the world believe of them such as all Rwandan performed the genocide against the Tutsi in 1994, Rwanda does not have mineral resource, and All Rwandan students do not have access to the technology.
The first stereotype people make about Rwanda is all Rwandan people performed the genocide against the Tutsi in 1994; nevertheless, there are many people in Rwanda who never committed that crime in fact, Rwanda has three tribes. According to (wcl.american.edu) “In this point, Rwanda has three tribes which are Tutsis, Hutus, and Twa. The Hutus tribes were 80%, and they migrated from southern Africa, they were also cultivators and laborers. The Tutsi were 20% they migrated from northern Africa (Egypt, and Ethiopia). Before colonial: privileged class with control of castle and arms. Most of the land was ruled by Tutsi king, the Mwami, some Hutu areas were independent. Twa were -1% which was mixed economy”.
Tutsi, Hutus, and Twa; however, the genocide was against the Tutsis. Some of the Hutus participated in that genocide against the Tutsi, but some of the Hutus hired the Tutsis in their homes. There are also the Hutus who honored by the Government because they saved the life of the people during the genocide. According to (worldwithoutgenocide.org) “Rwandan Genocide “refers to the 1994 mass slaughter in Rwanda of the ethnic Tutsi and politically moderate Hutu peoples. The genocide made by Hutus over the Tutsis, but was not all the Hutus who performed the Genocide. The killings began in early April of 1994, and continued for approximately one hundred days until the “Hutu Power” movement’s defeat in mid-July”.
It was genocide against the Tutsi ethnic and Hutus ethnic. The majority of Hutu ethnic participated in the genocide Rwandans People used to marry each other before; nevertheless, in 1994 the Hutus killed the Tutsis and families’ friends. They did not care about the relationship, and friendship they used to have between each other. Rwanda used to have three ethnics among these ethnics involved in the genocide, but it were not all of them. Currently, Rwandans citizens are obliged to fight against the genocide, and all ethnicity issues. We built the on reality and integrity because we are all Rwandan. We do not have the same mindset as before. Before 1994, the leaders basically used divisionism, negationism, and segregation of ethnicity. During the President Habyarimana Juvenal, all Tutsi were scary because of the bad Government.
The leaders were tortured the Tutsis and they friends. The Tutsi, the Hutu, and Twa were the same and equal before colonial period. According to(rwandanstories.org) “The Belgians did little to protect the Tutsi minority from this wave of killings which Bertrand Russell described as “the most horrible and systematic human massacre since the extermination of the Jews by the Nazis.” The Hutu, Tutsi, and Twa are currently equal in Rwanda. We practiced what we called reconciliation. Rwanda was not going to be the country we have, but we achieved to equality because of we seated down and became united. Rwanda has a good government that is why we are going far no more Genocide in our country.
Another stereotype people make about Rwanda is Rwandans do not the mineral resources. This stereotype is not true. First of all, Rwanda is nearby Congo, and it is also located in the heart of Africa. So most the African countries including Rwanda has the amount of Mineral resource; nevertheless, it had own land, and resources as a country. Rwanda has more than 400 local mining exploitations companies. According to (export.gov) “Most local mining companies are artisanal in their settings. Over 400 local mining companies and 30 cooperatives are open to consider partnership and JVs, covering financing, capital equipment, technical support and competitive mineral trade contracts”. In Rwanda there are different categories of mineral resource. According to ( rdb.gov.rw) “These companies are dealing with Cassiterite, wolframite, niobium-tantalite. Rwanda also possesses a variety of mineral such as good quality silica sands, kaolin, vermiculite, diatomite, clays, limestone, talcum, gypsum and pozzolan”. The mineral resource Rwanda has it not from anywhere else. Good governance in Rwanda made everything possible, before the 1990 the Government was not responsible for it resource. After 1994 the Rwanda has huge change in different sectors Such as Mineral, public, forest and infrastructure, telecommunications, and others. These sectors used to have a gap of bad leadership because of the corruption. Whatever you do brings the value, and reward. That is the main reason why the Rwanda has more investors in mining sector. Rwanda has 30 districts and each one of these district has mining resource.
According to(bgr.bund.de) “Rwanda mining sector Started in the 1930s when exploration and exploitation activities were dominated by Belgian investors, Rwanda’s mining sector has a long-standing history of private and public management (partly being nationalized from the 1970s until the 1990s). It has recently been re-privatized, with on-going efforts by the government to establish and refine the associated policy and regulatory framework (e.g., through the new Mining Code of 2014). The sector plays an increasingly important role in the national economic and development framework. In its current second Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS II), the Rwandan government identifies the mining sector as one of the selected priority areas to facilitate economic growth and fight poverty”.
The last stereotypes people make about are Rwanda does not provide a better education to their children. Is a nonprofit group that thinks big? (ezproxy.aclin.org) “Since 2007, it has sold inexpensive but rugged laptop computers to the governments of less-developed countries. The goal is to equip each of the two billion children in the developing world with his or her own computer. It’s been slow going. About 1.6 million of the group’s laptop has been distributed to date, said Matt Keller, vice president for global advocacy at the O.L.P.C. Foundation, based in Cambridge, Mass. Today, the largest concentrations are in Uruguay, at around 400,000, and Peru, at 280,000, followed by Rwanda (110,000) and Haiti and Mongolia (15,000 each). Rwanda implemented the new program to the children.
They started the most beneficial called Laptop per child. This program is a great to the kids because each child owns a new laptop. Those laptops also help them to revise and do some research to their studies”. This project helps Rwandan children’s activities. In Rwanda the government implemented this program because it is promoting an ICT. Each child has Laptop, and use it for the home works. The education in Rwanda currently is totally different from the education for the past 25 years. Rwanda has a stable Ministry of education, while in the past a few years were the education was weak. Before the incident of 1994, inequality proportion system was used for entry into to schools, which was openly based on tribes, religion, and regional criteria, on behalf of scholastic performance. The education system was particularly targeted during the conflicts. Educated, teachers, and the people who had great opinions were murmured and kidnaped one by one. (unicef.org/rwanda/education) “Rwanda is one of a few African countries on track to achieve universal access to primary education (96% net enrolment in 2011) with girls enrolling at slightly higher rates than boys. Under the Nine Year Basic Education Reform, Government abolished primary school fees in 2003 and lower secondary fees in 2007. It also invested heavily in teacher training and classroom construction to get more children into school while maintaining the quality of education.”
In this particularly case the education standard in Rwanda, residue low despite accomplishment of the new policies such as such as obligatory education for middle school six years(6years) enrolling at least basically 3 years of high school. The state school executes all activities concerned by free education. All the children are not required to pay school fees for the obligatory schooling free. The parents are also obliged to encourage their children to go to school because the school is enthusiastic. The government and school states are also able to evaluate all the execution for the new implementations. Ministry of education executes the new rules and put them in actions for better education. The teachers and administration council also have to make sure everything is going well. Currently each children have access to the education and access to technology (one Laptop per child).
