Are the United States of America, the Belgium, the France, and the United Kingdom the gods of the countries of the African Great Lakes Region (AGLR)? This is one of the questions that get critical and informed answers from this book. In fact, the countries of the AGLR such Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and the DRC have been experiencing penurious socioeconomic situations, insecurity, human rights violation, and diverse atrocities for more than 400 hundred years now. Ethnic killings, civil wars, and genocides had been the most deleterious ones. For the recent historic atrocious events in the AGLR like the 1994 genocide, the civil wars in Uganda, the first and second wars of DRC, the ethnic killings in Burundi, etc. Most of the people of the AGLR and some international observers and agencies have never failed to blame some Western countries like the United States of America, the Belgium, the France, and the United Kingdom as if they were authors of the destiny of the African nations! Several books have been written showing proofs of involvement of the United States of America, the Belgium, the France, and the United Kingdom in many destructive activities in the AGLR, and in Africa as a whole. Many people believe that durable peace and prosperity can only be possible if those Western countries decide it. This book provides a contradictory view with comprehensive and concise historical analysis of the problems of the AGLR. The first volume (volume I) contains six first chapters with thought provoking-provoking questions and answers in the sixth chapter focusing on self-awareness, knowledge of the land, and true and right information about the populations of the African Great Lakes Region (AGLR). The questions involve but not limited to: Who am I?; Why am I here?; Why was I born in the AGLR?; What kind of thoughts and beliefs do I have?; What do I think about my tribe or ethnic group?; What do I think about other ethnic groups or tribes of my country?; Do I know the history of African migrations?; Do I know the history of the people of AGLR?; Do I know the impact of colonialism on Africa - on the AGLR?; What gift(s) or talent(s) do I have?; What goals do I have with reference to my gifts and beliefs?; What do I like to do?; Is what I have been doing in accordance with what I was born to do?; What should I be doing from today?; etc. We are optimistic that shedding light on people's minds with the suggested enlightening answers to these questions in Chapter 6 of this book (Volume I) will help in the process of establishing durable peace and prosperity for all in the African Great Lakes Region (AGLR).
