Stepp’d in blood: Akazu and the architects of the Rwandan genocide against the Tutsi written by Dr Andrew Wallis

The 1994 Rwandan genocide against the Tutsi was the signature moral horror of the late 20th century. Andrew Wallis reveals, for the first time, the personal lives and crimes of the family group (‘Akazu’) that destroyed their country and left one million dead. Wallis’ meticulous research uncovers a broad landscape of terror, looking back to the ‘forgotten’ Rwandan genocide of the early 1960s and the failure by the international community, to learn lessons of prevention and punishment, a failure that would be repeated thirty years later.

Senior Butler

Peterhouse, the oldest of the Cambridge Colleges, has an exciting role of Senior Butler, which we are seeking to fill.

The Senior Butler is responsible for the supervision of the Assistant Butlers and casual Service Staff. In the absence of the Deputy Head Butler and Head Butler, the Senior Butler will assume responsibility for the smooth running of food and drink service. The role therefore requires a practical approach, whilst demonstrating the ability to organise other service staff in an effective manner.  

Head of the Cam, IV Winners

Stroke Jon Shoesmith and coxswain Charlotte Coles executed the race plan fantastically allowing the crew to complete the 2.6km course in 10:56, the fastest time from any 4 that day earning the crew the win and some well-deserved glassware. A brilliant start to the May’s campaign and an excellent platform from which to build.
