When King Mutara Rudahigwa became king of Rwanda he made many changes - in 1954 he shared out of land between the Hutu and the Tutsi. The Tutsi were unhappy with this, which led to Mutara Rudahigwas assassination in 1959. Political instability and tribal conflict grew despite the efforts of his son, King Kigeli Ndahindurwa. An increasingly restive Hutu population, encouraged by the Belgian military, sparked a revolt in November 1959, resulting in the overthrow of King Kigeli V. Kigeli V fled into exile to Uganda. Now he lives in the United States.
