This document from the Gacaca trials in the Nyarugunga sector was published by Pambazuka News, weekly forum for social justice in Africa.

Introduction: "According to testimonies from different groups, the killings in Nyarugunga sector began on the night of President Habyarimana’s death, so that a number of the targeted families had no opportunity at all to leave their houses. Several families who took refuge at Kanombe commune office were driven back by the soldiers and communal policemen who were patrolling there, and headed for Masaka parish where they later met their deaths. In two of its sectors, Nyarugunga and Busanza, gacaca trials have got underway. They began in Nyarugunga the day after the official launch of gacaca activities in June and in Busanza in November 2002, with the second series of pilot sectors."
