Listening Post – Rwanda’s media 17 years after the genocide


Subscribe to our channel

Seventeen years ago, ethnic tensions in the small East African country of Rwanda boiled over into one of the bloodiest genocides the world had ever seen. What helped to trigger those events was the hate speech broadcast on Rwandan airwaves, by one station in particular – Radio Mille Collines. Fast-forward to 2011 and Rwandan journalists are still burdened with that legacy. Plus, online hoaxes and the dilemma for journalists trying to cover the Arab uprisings.
