Students at a Melbourne secondary school have been treated to a unique and profound story of forgiveness. Jean Paul Samputu's family was murdered in the Rwandan genocide - but he controversially decided to forgive the man who killed them. He's now sharing his powerful story around the world.Luke Waters reports
Year 12 students at Sirius College in Melbourne's north sat mesmerised as Rwandan-born Jean Paul Samputu shared his remarkable story of forgiveness.
His parents and siblings were among the estimated 800,000 Tutsis killed in a bloody 90-day period of 1994.
Jean Paul says his life spiralled into nine years of self-destructive behaviour when he learnt the person responsible for his family's death was a childhood friend named Vincent.
