There is no linguistic minority in Rwanda, because almost the entire population, 98% speak the national language, Kinyarwanda, the language of the Bantu family. Following the First World War, Rwanda was handed over to the Belgians, who introduced French as an official language. With the return of 850,000 Tutsi refugees after the genocide of 1994, the government adopted plans to make English the official language and gradually replace the domination of French. In 2003, English became the official language alongside French and Kinyarwanda, and since 2010, it is the only language used in schools. The refugees have not only brought a new language, but also a new culture, with different customs and social practices that have further divided the Rwandan national identity.
