From Rusizi in Rwanda lies a historical site that is linked to the Musinga history, a palace next to the elegant tree (umuvumu) in the Rukali village behind the Kamembe Airstrip in Rusizi district our roots are in Nyanza and in Moba,Tanganyika we are from the Abega clan From the great warriors Makara, and Mutezintare The great chief Rwakagara, great-aunt Nyiratunga - Queen-Mother The situations among our families divide us The situations out of our control spread us all over the continents With the same Surname- Musinga But different dialects (languages) Forget our language - Kinyarwanda. Our Umugabekazi (Queen Mother) Nyirauhi V Kanjogera, Our King Mwami Kigeri IV Rwabigi Our uncles Ruhinankiko and Kabare brother of Kanjogera and Mbanzabigwi Grand Father Yuhi Musinga ya Ndahiro. Queen Kankazi, Mother of Mutara III Rudahigwa King Mutara III Rudahigwa Charles Léon Pierre and Queen Rosalie Gicanda Son of King Yuhi IV Musinga and Nyiramavugo Kankazi Redegonde No let me stop, the tears are running out of my eyes.
