"The Ruanda language, called IkinyaRuanda by its Bantu
speakers, is spoken by the 3 million inhabitants of Rwanda.
Independent since 1962, Rwanda has two primary social groups:
the BaHutu and the WaTusi, or BaTutsi.   The indigenous
inhabitants of the Rwanda-Burundi plateau were the Twa
(BaTwa) pygmies, who number about 50,000 and speak a form
of the Ruanda language.   The pygmies were defeated and dis-
persed on the arrival of the Hutu, who now make up at least
85 per cent of the BanyaRuanda.   In the 16th century the BaHutu
were themselves defeated by the tall WaTusi invaders from the
north.   Dialectal differences can be noted between WaTusi and
BaHutu, but the standard literary idiom is based on Hutu usage."
