God Sleeps in Rwanda

A Personal Journey of Tranformation

Joseph Sebarenzi Laura Mullane

As a teenager, Joseph Sebarenzi fled Rwanda, escaping a campaign of genocide that saw 800,000 Tutsis murdered in just ninety days.

He returned to Rwanda and was elected speaker of parliament. Following a plot to assassinate him, he fled once again. Here, he recounts his life with elegance and wisdom, showing how the lessons of Rwanda can prevent future tragedies from happening the world over in an inspiring story of a man who eschews bitterness and hatred for love, compassion, and forgiveness.

"Joseph Sebarenzi presents a thoughtful critique of Kagame's regime. His tale is a provocative warning to the many outsiders who are ready to canonize Kagame."
