Africa is beset by many socioeconomic and political problems. Kaplan (1994) points out that scarcity, crime, over-population, ethnic conflict, and disease are rapidly destroying the social fabric of our planet. It is apparent that Rwanda and other African countries are facing cataclysms of crime, violence, famine, political and economic instability, ethnic strife, and a declining resource base. Rwanda is currently experiencing ethnic clashes, scarcity of resources, and a wave of urban violence and crime. In Rwanda today, criminal anarchy and violence appear to be the more real and immediate dangers to the social fabric of the society.
