Burundi stuggles to get rid of Nkurunziza

2017-09-20 14:30

It is now clear to everyone in the world that Burundi is facing a dilemma struggle when it comes to governing the country and choosing true political leaders.

At the same time citizens of Burundi are thoroughly disgusted with their current president Pierre Nkurunziza. After all the violent and death of innocent souls, child abuse, women abuse and the poverty crisis which is caused by the political instability of that country, I strong believe that Burundi need new leaders that will shape that country and regain its economy back.

We can’t deny the fact that Burundi is one of the richest country I terms of resources like gold, copper, nickel, uranium, vanadium but they are useless due to poor leadership of that country and unstable economy.

In July 2015, presidential elections were held in Burundi. President Pierre Nkurunziza ran for third term, which is unusual as the law only allows two terms. However it looks like Nkurunziza is willing to rule Burundi forever.

The court approved his standing his third standing as he made it clear that on 2005 he was elected by parliament not the voters. Although the court agreed with Nkurunziza to stand for third term, on the other side citizens were not happy about this decision. Since he came into power Burundi have been nothing but the state of violent and poverty. Several protests have taken place and high number of people died in these incidents.

Also, a high number of citizens has ran to neighbor countries to protect their lives like Tanzania and Rwanda to protect their lives.

It is obvious that Nkurunziza is a good example of presidents with poor leadership skills in our African continent. If he was a reasonable person, he would have stepped down a long time ago before Burundi turned into what it is today. It seems like he only cares about his wealth and position without considering citizens who are the ones who voted for him to change their lives.

I think the only solution to pull Burundi in this sinking ship is for the United Nation and Africa Union to resolve this issue. If they have power to remove Nkurunziza from his chair, I will strongly agree with them and elect someone to hold the position until next presidential election. 

Other African countries should also work with Burundi by allowing women and children to stay from this country to stay until the matter is resolved.
