Burundi: Why did the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) precipitate the Burundi of its political agenda?

Burundi: Why did the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) precipitate the Burundi of its political agenda?
The question deserves a response, four months after the CSNU posed this gesture to withdraw the Burundi from its political agenda. It was December 4th, 2020. Since that date, the violations of human rights in Burundi continued and even increased. The US State Department, in its report of April 01, 2021, draws up a 200 deaths from the year 2020. Human rights organizations in Burundi say that this figure does not reveal the reality, that it is more than 400 people killed at the moment when the power of Gitega rejects everything in bulk, seems to show that everything is pink, without having to explain themselves on the serious violations of the human rights of which he is accused.
By removing the Burundi from its political agenda, the CSNU, in its statement, justified its decision by  » an improvement of the security situation in Burundi  ». The decision sought then there will be no more reports issued to the Security Council every three months. The Secretary General of the NU, Antonio Guterres, should cover the country as part of its regular reports on the Great Lakes region and Central Africa.
However, the report of the US State Department has just proved that the UNSC was wrong by making this decision. According to this report, which also confirms what has always been written by the different human rights organizations in Burundi, serious violations of men have observed in Burundi, and since the arrival to the power of Evariste Ndayishimiye.
In its March 2021 report, the United Nations Commission of Inquiry into Burundi led by Doudou Diene had announced that  » since September 2020, formerly FAB soldiers (members of the former Burundian armed force) as well as members from their families, young people, often of Tutsi origin, and members of the opposition parties, have been victims of extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, and arbitrary detentions often accompanied by torture.  ». Diene Doudou added that  » Every week, lifeless bodies continue to be found in the public space and are buried at a speed of the authorities. The extent of this phenomenon that is part of the duration and the large number of these « blood crimes » in the country remain worrying  ». He concluded that  » the government must recognize the seriousness of the situation and remedy it. Nothing has been done in this direction.
It should be concluded that the Security Council was mistaken or rolled by those who gave reports from the security situation on Burundi. Some believe that it would have been blinded on the one hand by improper relations on the progress and the results of the elections as well as the situation that prevailed after the elections because everything seemed normal; Which does not mean that the people accepted the results of the elections. If the people did not get up directly to the street challenging the electoral holdup that had just taken place, it is simply that he knew how much the military clique had prepared to repress in the blood (as she did it at the 2015 events), any dispute of the results of these elections. On the other hand, the CSNU would have believed in the intentional statements by President Evarist Ndayishimiye. Same Diane Doudou highlighted it in its report that  » The declarations of intent of President Ndayishimiye, cannot improve the situation  » ‘
The decision of 4 December 2020 fell at the time when Burundian power refused to extend the Office of the UN Special Envoy on December 31, 2021, as Antonio Guterres advocated. That is what pushed Thierry Vercoulon, the Observatory Coordinator for Central and Southern Africa of IFRI (French Institute of International Relations) to speak  » of a notification of helplessness of the CSNU  ». His communiqué also concludes by asking for the power of Gitega to  » fight against human rights violations and other persistent problems, as if he had noted that this power had already marked significant points.
Many political analysts find it possible to remove Burundi from the CSNU’s political agenda was a strategy to encourage Burundi to more openness to other countries around the world (because former Pierre Nkurunziza had completely isolated country of the rest of the world); And in this way, it was easier for the international community to put pressure (policy, diplomatic, economic) on the Burundian government to work in keeping with respect for human rights. These analysts, however, recognize that this strategy has failed.
URN Hitamwoneza reminds CNSU that CNDFDD power is not ready to change tomorrow or the day after tomorrow in the positive sense of respect for human rights because it is under the influence of men and women who have committed a lot Blood crimes and economic crimes, so much so that they benefit from what the situation is maintained as such or to wear (some are under international sanctions). It is for this reason that this military clique is ready to provoke a genocide in Burundi and in sub region (the targets: Tutsis and the Hutus of the opposition). We will never stop repeating it and time will give us right. Now that the CSNU has made the observation of its failure, now that the EU has also noticed that the promises held by President Evarist Ndayishimiye are never followed by effects because he does not have the power of decision (it is the group of criminals that decides), the international community as a whole, and the CSNU in particular, should keep a vigilant eye on Burundi and take preventive measures in time instead of seeking to react after the fact.
