  • Kinyarwanda, also known as Rwanda or Rwandan, is the official language of Rwanda and a dialect of the Rwanda-Rundi language spoken by 12 million people in Burundi and adjacent parts of southern Uganda. Speakers of Kinyarwanda are subdivided into two ethnic groups, the Hutu and the Tutsi. Kinyarwanda is one of the three official languages of Rwanda, and is spoken by almost all of the native population. This contrasts with most modern African states, whose borders were drawn by colonial powers and did not correspond to ethnic boundaries or pre-colonial kingdoms.
