Nkurunziza calls security meet as police kills 2


Burundi President, Pierre Nkurunziza, visited Tuesday, June 9, 2015 in Gitega Province for an evaluation meeting with the governors of all provinces of Burundi and communal administrators.

The purpose of the meeting was on the security situation, the evaluation of agricultural production and the preparation for the 2015 elections.

Security reigns in the 119 municipalities that make up the Burundi but four districts of Bujumbura: Nyakabiga, Mutakura, Ngagara and Musaga are now rocked by protests.

Nkurunziza also told governors that 90% of the population has already withdrawn the voter card in view of the upcoming elections and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will continue to distribute the voter card so that those who return to the country may also be present elections.

Police kills student, woman-mother of two

Nkurunziza’s security meeting came amid opposition and civil society protests that have caused unrest ever since he announced a decision to seek a third term in office.

The president’s militia, imbonerkure, police and other security organs have since responded to protests with brutality and bloodshed.

According to latest reports, a 16 year-old high school student, Issa Mwamba Shaban, arrested by police in southern Burundi has been found dead near a police station.

Grieved and heartbroken, the boy’s uncle wondered whether regional leaders and international community are “waiting for all of us to die to come and help us?”

About 50 have been killed by police and militia while over 500 others were left injured.

Police said in a statement that Shaban had committed theft but his uncle, Habib, 38, said Imbonerakure youth had come hunting for him that morning.

The imbonerakure youth then dragged Shaban into the street where policemen emerged to arrest him.

“Issa wanted to run away but the police followed him. They shot him with real bullets in the back. Issa fell to the floor,” Habib told IBTimes UK.
