As Wundannas, Rungans, and Lords, we share a common treasure as the children of Burunga. The country long referred to as the Hills of Freedom has become a melting pot of different ethnic groups. It is a common treasure, a Bungandy, as our ancestors used to say. From this day forward, the three ethnic groups will live as a same people.”
Yet only the Rungans and Wundannas believed in that unity. As the Lord’s lust for power grew, they created a conflict that would soak the rich brown soil red. For centuries, betrayal, bloodshed, mass killings, and genocide would defeat the heroism of the Djandhis until Haydar shakes off the mantle of oppression and galvanizes his people to fight violence with violence. Lucien Nzeyimana takes the reader into the wicked web behind ethnic cleansing, shining a light, as he does so, on dark atrocities the likes of which besieged Bungandy.
