Their parents had just been murdered, the maid had managed to escape with the two little ones. For two months they lived in hiding in the marshes. They had to escape those who were tracking the Tutsi: adults but also children. Valentine Gatabazi: "There are children who accompanied the militia, who were armed and who were responsible for killing children their age. A 10-year-old child chose another 10-year-old from the group. killing him, he was doing it. In the end they enjoyed it".
