Sir: Your leading article on Rwanda, by focusing on what seems a hopeless situation, serves only to make it more hopeless. In reality there is hope, if the vision is widened a little. At the same time as the tragic events in Rwanda, a general strike has been taking place in Nigeria against a hated military government. Here ordinary Africans of many different ethnic backgrounds have shown that it is possible to unite to change the world.

Their example should give hope that the future in Rwanda can be different as well.

Yours faithfully,
