The Rwanda language (or Kinyarwanda) is spoken by between 7 and 9 million people. Most of those people are in Rwanda (where it is an official language), and there are speakers in southern Uganda, and eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Rwanda is closely related to Kirundi, and they are largely mutually intelligible.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Rwanda as a first language that live in that territory.
