Book Description

4 Oct 2007
By a seeming miracle, Illuminée Nganemariya, a young Tutsi bride and her newborn son Roger survived the 1994 attempt by Rwandas Hutu extremists to wipe their Tutsi neighbours from the face of the earth. Illuminée existed for 100 days in the living hell of Kigali, Rwandas capital, after watching her husband being dragged away to be killed by friends who had celebrated their wedding with them a month earlier. Then she embarked on a horrific journey through the Genocide with Roger strapped to her back. At any moment a wrong move would have seen them join the 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus who were slaughtered in the space of just three months. Illuminée Nganemariya has spent the last decade living in Norwich, England, dealing with the trauma of her 100-day nightmare.

Product Description


Illuminée Nganemariya s story is one of great courage in the face of the unimaginable horrors that beset our country in the spring of 1994. It is important that we never forget what happened in Rwanda. Miracle in Kigali plays a role in healing the scars of the Genocide. --H.E. Claver Gatete, Ambassador of the Republic of Rwanda to the United Kingdom.

About the Author

Illuminée Nganemariya was born in Kigali, Rwanda in 1968, the youngest child of a middle class Tutsi family. She married John Nsengiyumva on April 3, 1994, two days before the death of President Juvenal Habyarimana, the spark that lit the Rwandan Genocide. Her son Roger was born at the height of the Genocide. Illuminée and Roger have lived in Norwich since 1996, and were both granted British citizenship in 2004. Illuminée's ambition is to open the first Rwandan restaurant in Norwich. Paul Dickson was born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1955. He has lived in the Norwich area since 1988, where he works as a freelance public relations consultant and writer. This is his second Tagman Press collaboration.
