About Jean Paul Saputu:
Jean Paul is a remarkable Rwandan man who experienced and survived the Rwandan genocide in 1994. His parents, three brothers and sister were killed by a childhood friend, Vincent. He went through nine very dark years, until he finally chose forgiveness. He met with Vincent at a traditional village gathering and forgave him publicly and they embraced. As a singer and song-writer he tours the world with a powerful message of love, forgiveness and reconciliation.
