Banyamulenge: The Slow Genocide

Episode 34

Play episode

This programme is dedicated to the memory of Angelina, the beloved sister of our friend, Alex Ntung. Angelina was murdered by the DRC army in 2021, a victim of the genocide against the Banyamulenge.

The Banyamulenge villages are burnt, the people are massacred and the survivors are driven into refugee camps which are then subject to attack, all under the nose of the UN. Why is this happening and what can be done to prevent their extermination?


Please note that this programme contains information about events that are inherently disturbing. While we have taken care to be as accurate as possible, some details of the lynching of Major Kaminzobe are still under investigation.
