Thanks for all your work on the Paul Kagame article. It's looking loads better already. Once you're done and if you feel like putting it up for GA, I'd be happy to review it. Lemurbaby(talk) 18:04, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

About Amakuru[edit]

I've been a member of Wikipedia since February 2006. Most of my Wikipedia work is article writing, particularly those related to Rwanda, with occasional excursions into other topics. My long term goal is to get all Rwanda related articles up to B class or better, but it's slow work. I am also an avid reader of other articles. Whilst mostly an article writer, I also do quite a bit of WikiGnome activity, just making minor fix ups here and there. I do a bit of admin too, including disambiguation, vandalism reversion, welcoming new users and WP:RM, where I proffer a few opinions from time to time.

My username is a Kinyarwanda word, whose literal meaning is news. It is the most common greeting in the country, equivalent to the English "how are you". The dialogue goes as follows:

  • Amakuru? (What's the news?)
  • Ni meza. (It is good.)

Rwanda is a country in central and eastern Africa located a few degrees south of the Equator, bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. All of Rwanda is at high elevation, with a geography dominated by mountains in the west, savanna in the east, and numerous lakes throughout the country. The climate is temperate. The predominantly rural population of 11.7 million people forms three main groups: the Hutu, Tutsi, and Twa. After Rwanda was first settled by hunter-gatherers in the Stone and Iron Ages, the population coalesced into clans and then into a Tutsi-led kingdom. It was colonised by Europeans in the 19th century and gained independence from Belgium on 1 July 1962 after a Hutu revolt led to massacres of Tutsis and the establishment of a Hutu-dominated republic. In 1990 the Tutsi-led Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) launched a civil war, which was followed by the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, in which Hutu extremists killed an estimated 500,000 to 1 million Tutsi and moderate Hutu but were ultimately defeated by the RPF. The economy suffered during the genocide, but has since strengthened and depends heavily on subsistence agriculture. (more...)
