    Er, for Rwanda, the dip starts well before the genocide, and probable has a lot more to do with the civil war being waged between Rwandan forces and the RPF – forced migration out of the country. Also, both the start and the end of the Congo war led to a lot of Hutus migrating back to Rwanda. Still population growth, but we have to be careful how to interpret it.
