Le Burundi à l’ère de la matraquage Nkurunzizan

La problème de l’instabilité politique au Burundi n’est plus une nouvelle. Elle s’est même, comme nous le connaissons bien, dégénérée en chaos avec un coup d’état raté. Ce qui est quand même une nouvelle inquiétante c’est la manière dont Mr. Nkurunziza gère le Burundi après la tentative ratée du coup d’état.

En effet, dès son retours du sommet sous régionale organisé en vue de sortir son pays de l’impasse politique que lui-même l’a plongé, M. Nkurunziza qui est bien connu pour son autosuffisance sans égale et, qui ni n’écoute personne ni ne craigne rien s’est manifesté prêt à mettre terme au maigre signe de paix que jouit le peuple Burundais. Déjà le manque de respect camouflé sous forme de cordialité qu’il a montré le Dimanche dernier, au cours de ce qu’il a appelé la conférence médiatique laisse voir le plan diabolique qu’il préparait pour le peuple Burundais. Comment, peut-on expliquer qu’un Monsieur attendu par les journalistes du monde entiers, pour expliquer la situation d’instabilité et de chaos politique qu’il a semé dans son pays et, surtout pour parler de son engagement à ramener la paix et à mettre fin au dernier matraquage des médias privés que la police a initié, s’est permis de distrait tout le monde en parlant du terrorisme au Burundi ? Qui est vraiment le terroriste si ce n’est celui qui fait venir des rebelles du pays voisin pour mater ses propres citoyens ? À quoi joue réellement M. Nkurunziza ?

Et pour ajouter du sel dans le plait, il se permet de limoger des ministres qui refusent de tuer les Burundais ? Pourquoi aurait-il limogé le ministre de la défense se non parce qu’il a refusé de donner l’ordre aux militaires pour abattre les peuple Burundais qui réclame la justice ? Pourquoi, aurait-il limogé le ministre de l’affaire extérieur si ce n’est pas qu’il n’a pas accepté d’accuser les experts étranger qui sont venus enquêter les excès du pouvoir au Burundi ?

M. Nkurunziza se permet d’utiliser la Police Burundaise contre son propre peuple. Il est temps pour lui de dire au monde entier ce qui font les imbonerakure, un groupe des ex-rebelles probablement venu du RD Congo.

Le peuple Burundais a droit à la justice et rien ne les empêchera de l’obtenir. Même pas les imbonerakure et le matraquage organiser contre tous ceux qui lui dissent la vérité.

Burundi: When His Excellency Plays A Good Patriot

An African (Igbo of Nigerian) proverb says that a man whose house is on fire do not chase rats, but Mr Pierre Nkurunziza, the President of Burundi, has decided to do the contrary. Burundi, as we have already know has been recently in a state of chaos; paralysed by different manifestations orchestrated by his recent modification of the constitutions of the Republic of Burundi which permits him to run for a third term as the President of Burundi. During these manifestations, Burundi lost not less than 18 of her citizens. There was also a failed putsch attempt which made a serious but brief vague both in and out of the Continent.

Pierre Nkurunziza And The Rest Of The Burundians: the downfall of a once-respected-gentleman

An Igbo (Nigeria) adage says that «it is easy for the village to finish a meal prepared by one man but impossible for one man to finish a meal prepared by the village» but Pierre Nkurunziza, President of Burundi has decided to tempt a gigantic meal prepared by his people. He has decided to impose himself on the people of Burundi independent of their refusal and manifestations. This once-respected-gentleman who came into power through the window, has finally decided to go against the hands that fed him. He has decided to dance Surugede without knowing that it (Surugede) is a dance of the spirits.

Born by a one time member of the Burundi parliament and governor of two provinces, in an aristocratic family of Bujumbura, Pierre Nkurunziza became a lecturer in his alma mater, the University of Burundi. But at the wake of the Civil War in his country Burundi, and precisely after his University was attacked in 1995, he left his post as a lecturer and joined the National Council for the Defence of Democracy, (CCND-FDD) as a soldier. His evolution was so tremendous that from the post of the secretary, he became the chairman of CNDD-FDD, the presidential Candidate and the President of Burundi in 2005.

Unfortunately, after two mandates allowed by the constitution of Burundi, Pierre Nkurunziza, who in the past has won many awards among which is that of good governance has decided to join the group of power usurpers that mares the African politics.  He opted to contest for a third tenure by modifying the Burundian constitution.

However, just like another Igbo adage has it that «who brings in an ant infested firewood invites lizards to his house»  Pierre Nkurunziza, has unknowingly started turning his own country into chaos. Already more than twenty people have been reported dead, thousands already crossed the boarder to the neighbouring countries, a serious division among the army has been created and the security of this country gotten with the blood of many citizens including his own father and brothers’ has been jeopardized, And the recent putsch attempt by a former member of Burundi intelligent agents, should have been a serious handwriting on the wall for him but, from all indications, he has been blindfolded bye his personal desire and power intoxication.

But what he has failed to understand so far is that he has lost the ground. For even though he can still hold on power, the rate at which the youths, old men and women are manifesting their opposition to his government, shows he can no longer enjoy their support. He has lost the general acceptance of his power and authority.  

Unfortunately he has continued to obstinate even when all his foreign alleys have told him to step aside. Even the joy of the Burundians at the announcement of his destitution shows that he is at the edge of his political career. In fact, the earlier Mr Nkurunziza accepts that his days are numbered the better for him and his fellow Burundians.
