Abstract: »During the Genocide perpetrated against Tutsi in Rwanda, Tutsi women were systematically raped by members of extremist Hutu militia groups. Consequently, genocide-rape survivors were left pregnant and gave birth to children whom they are obliged to take care. This article evaluates the psychological state of genocide-rape survivors living with rape born children, their interpersonal relationships and how raped survivors perceive their children’s behaviors. Participants were selected amongst victims in Kamonyi and Karongi districts. Therefore, different tools for data collection including Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interviews, Statements public use to describe parents, Behaviors Checklist and individual interviews were used. With qualitative and quantitative data analysis, the findings reveal that the fractious and adverse effects of genocidal rape are still fresh in the minds of the genocide-rape survivors. They are suffering different psychological problems which are influencing the efforts they are engaging in rearing rape born children and consequently affect the child behaviors.« [Source: During the Genocide perpetrated against Tutsi in Rwanda, Tutsi women were systematically raped by members of extremist Hutu militia groups.
