“My sister Anastasia brought her three Tutsi grandchildren to my house. They stayed a week, hidden under my bed. One Sunday, it was raining, and a local inspector sought shelter in my home. He surprised Anastasia who was bringing food back to the house. He asked her who the food was for, and he then tried to force open the door to my room at which point I told him everything. The next Tuesday, the Interahamwe militia showed up at my door and led us out to the yard. They killed the children with their clubs. It was me who buried them behind the enclosure. Anastasia accuses me of killing her grandchildren. But, from where she was standing, she could plainly see that it wasn’t me.”
