Burundi has once again come to the media spotlight as one of Burundi’s National Vice Presidents, Gervais Rufyikiri the second Vice President, has skipped the border and fled to Belgium, claiming that he was in real fear for his security after personally being threatened for speaking out against or denouncing President Pierre Nkurunziza’s volatile bid for a third term in office, a move considered to be unconstitutional.
Following President Pierre Nkurunziza there were subsequent protests against the president since 26th April 2005, by the people and the assasination of a key opposition figure, and thousands of civillians fled across Burundi’s borders to neighbouring nations for safety after growing violence injured many people. Burundi’s government have denied the allegations laid by the Burundi’s government’s second Vice President Gervais Rufyikiri . by Sibusiso Ngwenya.
