The study cites cases as in the Rukumberi Sector of Ngoma District (East) where more than 311 Tutsi families were exterminated without leaving any survivor.

The same case is Nyarubuye Sector in Kirehe District. In this Sector, the study shows that a big number of thousand Tutsi families were extinguished, and left no surviving member.
