The UN closes its mission in Burundi



This is one more alarming news out of Burundi.

TFF and I have been involved there between 1998 and 2012. It was a splendid UN mission for which the Burundian government should have been grateful. But it was always negative to the UN and thought it could solve all problems itself. And only causing more.

Burundi is in a very serious situation now.

I have no sympathy for Mr. Agathon Rwasa’s political and military work over the last decade but I can subscribe to every word he states here.

The world has paid attention only to Rwanda. It may soon wake up to the usual “surprise”: A new bout of violence in Burundi. God forbid, I say – and hope I am wrong.
