Will Ferguson: "There's more to Rwanda than the genocide"
When Jean-Claude Munyezamu first invited friend and fellow soccer dad Will Ferguson to his native Rwanda, the Canadian author said he didn't want to go.
Cut to Ferguson being emasculated by a gorilla while exploring the East African country — just one of many adventures chronicled in his new book Road Trip Rwanda.
Munyezamu, who narrowly escaped the 1994 genocide, led the Giller Prize winning writer on a true journey of discovery. Yes, Ferguson met Rwandans recovering from one of the worst mass killings in modern history — but he also broadened his horizons to include all the beauty, humour and vibrancy of the nation.
Both men join Shad, himself a son of Rwanda, to discuss the perspective-changing journey.
