The Speaker of East African Legislative Assembly Daniel Kidega has condemned the continued assassination of government officials in Burundi.
This is after 54 year old Emmanuel Niyonkuru, Burundi’s environment minister was shot dead while on his way home on New Year’s Eve.
Early last year, Burundi’s East African Legislative Assembly Member Hafsa Mossi was also gunned down by unknown assailants.
Now Kidega tells KFM that the ongoing reconciliation mechanism spearheaded by Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni must be expedited to provide a lasting solution to Burundi’s security crisis.
He also challenges the Burundi government to do everything possible to stop such heinous killings.
