Ndandali grave

Bishop Ndandali and his family hid in their house for months. Three times they heard the interahamwe were coming to get them. They survived because militia leaders feared international attention if they murdered a Bishop and French soldiers arrived before they could be "finished off." Bishop Ndandali died in February 1995 because he became ill and there were no medical facilities left.
