Liboire Bakundukize

A top police chief in Burundi has fled the country after surviving an assassination attempt.

Bakundukize Liboire, the spokesman of the National Police of Burundi said he is currently in exile.

He narrowly escaped an assassination attempt, according to Burundi media.

In a recording, Liboire Bakundukize said there are two parallel police in Burundi, one trained and the other untrained.

Liboire further narrates that they are also non-policemen dressed in police uniform who do the duties supposed to be for real police officers.

To the contrary, the deputy police spokesperson, Pierre Nkurikiye, denied the revelations made by Liboire saying there were personal.

Police has been battling protesters who seek to protect their constitution from being violated.

Last month, Burundi second vice president also fled the country at the peak of protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza’s pursuit of the third term in office.

Gervais Rufyikiri, a second vice president in charge of the East African nation’s economy, said Nkurunziza’s plan to extend his decade-long rule is illegal under the constitution.

The 50-year-old Rufyikiri, appointed in 2010, said he was threatened by “government agents” before leaving Burundi.

Also to flee the country was Judge Sylvere Nimpagaritse, the vice-president of Burundi’s constitutional court after being pressured by Nkurunziza to validate his third term bid.
