It's thirty years since the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda, perpetrated by the Hutu-led government.

British journalist Michela Wrong's book Do Not Disturb, The Story of a Political Murder and an African Regime Gone Bad explores the legacy of the genocide, exposing a murderous in-coming regime that operates on a "grand scale deceit", exercising a destabilising influence on the wider region.

Michela has reported from and written about Africa for almost three decades, working for Reuters and the Financial Times.

Michela is visiting NZ this week, giving a series of talks at the invitation of the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs.
