Munanira revisiting the fields where he survived the 1994 Genocide.

Munanira is walking through the fields, next to a banana plantation, in what can only be described as rural Rwanda. 20 years ago, he was here, he was surviving in these fields, after being hacked by a spear as well as a machete. He was only 12 years old when all this happened. His cousin John was 7, also suffered a cut in his head and the two of them where left to die. They spent 1 week in the fields before they managed to walk away and eventually reach safety...more on that later.  Munanira recently got married and is planning on moving to a nearby area.
Munanira walks through the fields where he was left to die 20 years ago, at the age of 12. His scar in the head is still very much visible, even in this picture.
