The event that was organized by several organizations and social movements aimed at raising awareness on the atrocities being meted on those perceived to be apposing Nkurunzinza’s controversial third term.

The activists and HRDs called on Nkurunzinza to immediately step aside and allow for constitution of an all inclusive interim government to prepare for fresh elections.

They accused Nkurunzinza of presiding over a systematic elimination, execution and torture of his opponents contrary to international law and principles of Natural Justice and added that Nkurunzinza bares greatest responsibility of crimes of international proportions being committed under his watch.

The activists also accused the UN, EU, AU, EAC and Kenyan government of not doing enough to save Burundi the Burundi People from total annihilation by Nkurunzinza similar to how the world watched as Rwanda genocide killed innocent Rwandese and called on Russia to lead the BRICS block to help put pressure on regional leaders to be more tough on Nkurunzinza.

The activists also asked the Kenyan government to expel the Burundi ambassador and recall the Kenyan ambassador from Burundi. The Kenyan government was also asked to bar Burundi ministers and top Nkurunzinza allies from entering Kenya.

Activists are planning further activities including a press conference and a procession to the Burundi Embassy in Nairobi.

Africa Moja! Africa Huru!
