Civil Unrest in Burundi

Dear Editor

The current civil unrest in Burundi has caused the death of many innocent civilians, with over 100,000 Burundians having sought refuge in neighbouring countries.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, warned that increasing violence by a pro-government militia, including executions, abductions and torture, was threatening to further destabilise the impoverished, landlocked country.

"The last thing Burundi needs after a decade of gradual and largely successful peace-building is to be catapulted back into civil war because of a small number of people's ruthless determination to retain, or gain, power at any cost," said the High Commissioner.

Let us hope and pray that sensible heads prevail amongst the powers that be in the country and peace and stability is restored.
