Outdated information

General References
Country: 
Rwanda
You have written "Ethnic groups: Hutu 89%, Tutsi 10%, Twa (pygmies), 30,000 1% (Barrett 1982). Possibly 75% of the Batwa killed in 1994 war". This information is roughly 20 years behind. Rwanda no longer has ethnic groups, everybody is Rwandan, their is no such division. Also, the Twa were not killed in a WAR, they were killed in the 1994 GENOCIDE against the Tutsis. Hopefully this will be fixed soon Thank you

Rwanda is a COUNTRY, not a LANGUAGE

It is written that Rwanda has 3 languages "English, French and Rwanda", this is not true since Rwanda's native language is Kinyarwanda. As a Rwandan I feel very offended that this is not recognized or hasnt been fixed already. Its not like we have 70 languages and you miss one or misspell one, we have ONE native language! This is unacceptable, this should be fixed! The order in which they are placed because it is known that languages are placed in order of population that speak it. With Kinyarwanda being our native language and French slowly dying out, it should be written as "Kinyarwanda, English and French"
