The Rwandan genocide shattered the political development of the community. Military structures destroyed saw the majority participating in mass killings. Political activities banished remained inactive until when the war ended giving way for an organized coalition government based on the provisions of the constitution (Spalding 14). Altering the country’ s political structure led to cases of unfairness based on race, religion, and ethnicity. Despite the political reforms and improved international assistance, the community continues to experience struggles in boosting political stability, investment and foster reconciliation. The genocide also left the country shattered socio-economically.

It left the country to reintegrate millions of refugees and to put an effort into ending the case of insurgency among the process ex-soldiers Rwandan patriotic army and the militia fighters. The war paralyzed long-term development plans that had been established when the French left (Spalding 14). The prison population is also one of the problems that the community was left to cope with having accommodated many of the perpetrators after the war.   Shattering a community is an act of evil in this context since it subjects the community to situations of underdevelopment politically, socially and economically.

The community is left with an option to account for the victims from both sides fairly (Reist 2). Shattering the community through acts of war leaves the majority of the victims with mental problems because of the genocide scenes. The community also experiences poverty expansion with roads, education institutions, churches and buildings destroyed. This is an implication that most of the important privacy, identity and safe places fostering family and country unions are lost in the process. Women as victims of the evil acts are the most affected with 70 percent displaced and over 500,000 tortured, abused and raped.

Over a quarter million of the Rwandese, children are orphans with some taking responsibility of their siblings while some live alone (Reist 2).
