    Default commas and who

    In the movie, “Hotel Rwanda,” Paul the manager of a five star hotel in the capital city goes to buy supplies from George who was a Hutus business man of some wealth and influence.

    Is the use of commas correct and do I put a comma before who?

    That is how I would write this. Does Hutu have an s on it?
    If you want to leave in the "who is," it's not wrong, but it does need the comma. Note that you also need commas to set off the description of Paul, and that five-star requries the hyphen.

    (I would use "who is" not "who as" since you are writing in the present tense.)
