Sitting very still, hands folded and with a soft voice, Jean-Bosco Rurangirwa relives the trauma of seeing his family hacked to death as they sheltered with thousands of others in a church.
Twenty years ago, it is said that one person died every 10 seconds over a period of 100 days as genocidal government troops joined by armed militia swept through the country.
In all at least 800,000 people, mostly ethnic Tutsis, were murdered in the slaughter that started on April 7, 1994. Countless others were raped or maimed, and trauma is said to affect a third of the population.
