Burundi: The country is immersed in persistent insecurity
Here and there, we speak of shots, grenades launched, corpses discovered, murdered people and others removed by state security services. And yet, President Evariste Ndayishimiye, did not miss the 23rd of September 2021, at the United Nations Tribune in New York, to boast a peaceful, secure and stabilized Burundi.
Explosions at the airport and grenades jets in both capitals
It all started the night of September 18, 2021 on the eve of the departure of President Evariste Ndayishimiye in New York to participate in the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly. Explosions have been heard around the only airport that the country has. The Red Tabara movement claimed the attack. He said he launched mortar bombs on the airport track and on the military positions that protect him with dead and wounded. However, the airport was operational the next day; President Evariste Ndayishimiye did not hesitate to make his trip as planned on 19 September 2021.
A grenade launched on the evening of the same day in Gitega made two deaths, about twenty wounded and damaged vehicles. The night of September 20 to 21, 2021 is the economic capital, which was the target: the grenades launched in the city centre, at the car park of the former central market and the Jabe market made two dead and 104 wounded. These acts, qualified » terrorism » by Sylvestre Nyandwi, Attorney General of the Republic, in his press conference of 22 September 2021, during which he accused Alexis Sindihije, Francois Nyamoya, Margarita Barankitse and others to be the planners, have not been claimed. The latter described the statements of Nyandwi Sylvestre of free and unfounded and categorically denied not to be involved neither closely in these attacks to the pomegranate they themselves denounced and condemned.
And quid of the grenade launched at the home of Colonel Aron Ndayishimiye?
This officer who commands the 212nd battalion who has some of his positions in the Rukoko Reserve is a former member of FNL; he is not derived from the CNDDFDD. He is one of the few who have been integrated into the army from the FNL that remain active in this body and still has a position of responsibility at this level. That’s why he works with an excessive zeal by killing with coolness and without reason everyone that the CNDDFDD designates as political or enemy opponents of the country. He does it clumsy and arrogantly so that his actions are too difficult to justify. He removes people in the open, on the sight of everyone, drive them aboard his vehicle in the Rukoko Reserve and no one will not even find their corpses.
The attack at the grenade of his home on September 23, 2021, who won his wife and servant can be interpreted in two ways: it may be a revenge from the relatives of the victims of these criminal acts; This attack can also come from the imbonerakure militia of the CNDDFDD that would seek to put it on the back of the former FNL members, current CNL, to stop them by mass, but also to allow Sylvestre Nyandwi to put the head of the CNL, Agathon Rwasa , on the list of terrorist planners in Burundi. He would see himself removed from his parliamentary immunity and would end up in prison. It is a possibility in the kingdom of the eagle. If this hypothesis proved true, Colonel Aron Ndayishimiye would also be in the CNDDFDD military click’s crosshairs because, with his zeal pushed to the extreme, he would have become an embarrassing element for power. Such people are manipulated by this power and ends up eliminating them. The examples are legion.
Ambushes on itineraries
The most recent was made as of the 11sept 2021. It was made on the RN7 at the level of Mu Gwingwe, Cogo Hill, Zone Vyuya, municipality Mugamba by armed men. A fuso vehicle was burned, an attacke on a hiace vehicle and a wounded biker. A total of 12 people were injured. This attack was not claimed; The police usually spoke of armed bandits. It was reported, the night from September 24 to 25, 2021, shots in the same locality in Mugamba commune. And a press release from the Red Tabara that soon released on September 25, speaks of its positions attacked by the national army jawed in the same municipality. His riposte would have made 3 dead on the side of the army, 02 AK47 and a machinery seized on the enemy, always according to the same press release. True or false. Difficult to prove.
In this press release, Red Tabara advises Burundians not to pass by national roads beyond 6 o’clock. Reason Advanced: Do not end up with two fires, depending on the specific terms of Patric Nahimana, military spokesman of this movement.
The interpretation of this kind of communication could make believe that it is this movement that tends to be ambushes on the routes. And what is still serious, these kinds of shares, carried out in Tutsis dominance areas are actions that give the power of the CNDDFDD to complete the genocide of Tutsis and the Hutus of the opposition in progress. Any action likely to disrupt security in such areas give the opportunity to make raids of all those that it unfairly accuses being enemies in the country (all those who are not members of the CNDFDD). The continuation is known to all: imprison them in unofficial places, torture and kill them. Such actions in these regions are then likely to play the game of the squadrons of the death of the CNDDFDD. Some will say that we do not do the omelette without breaking the eggs. Yes, but, the risk is great to break all the eggs and not to make omelette because all the ingredients are not yet together to do it.
In addition, prohibiting Burundians from going through national roads beyond 6 o’clock is neither less nor more to deprive them of their right of circulation. Not only that the measure slows the economic development of the country and consequently citizens individually, it is likely to cause a lot of traffic accidents. People will tend to limit their participation in social activities inside the country and if they participate, they will have to limit the time and return ride at a high speed of fear of failing to respect this curfew imposed. As a result, the Red Tabara would not contribute a solution, but would add other problems to violence already inflicted on Burundian by CNDDFDD power.
The speech by President Evariste Ndayishimiye in New York
By presenting Burundi as a paradise where peace, security and stability is total, it has, however, indicated that it is under the threat of terrorist groups that carry out their actions in the sub region. He mentioned the Red Tabara and ADF. Putting ADF and Red Tabara in the same bag is a dishonest game to want to encourage the United Nations to declare this movement, which has political demands, terrorist group as the case of ADF.
In addition, he has silenced the FDRLs and the FNNs already recognized by the United Nations as negative forces and who yesterday were based on the East of the DRC, but who moved their back base in the kibira of Burundi led by Evariste Ndayishimiye and his military click. One of the evidence is corpses of 5 men in Congolese army uniform found on the Ruhembe hill in the Bumba zone in the municipality Bukinanyana in Cibitoke Province, Friday, September 24, 2021. The information written by SOS Media specifies that the population of The locality used to see men in Congolese military outfits speaking Kinyarwanda. Which reminds FDRL / FLN fighters in Kibira. This population claims to have heard shots on Wednesday and Thursday of the same week in the locality. According to SOS, the administrator of the municipality ordered to bury these corpses while prohibiting the people taking pictures. What did he want to hide? The answer is clear.
By passing in silence these groups that disrupt the security of Rwanda from Burundi, Evariste Ndayishimiye has implicitly showed that it is wick with them or to say that it supports them. Wanting Red Tabara and ADF in the same basket, before the United Nations, is a clear message that his military clique does not intend to dialogue with all those who oppose the CNDDFDD power. The heads of state present should draw a lesson on how to treat this power in their attempts to establish bilateral or multilateral relations with him.
URN Hitamwoneza once again asks the Burundian population not to be manipulated by all those who have political demands, while putting it directly into the mouth of the lion, the CNDFDD. This genocidal power is just waiting for a simple pretext to take to the final assault: to complete the outstanding genocide started since 1993. The international community should not be satisfied with the good speeches of President Evariste Ndayishimiye. It must be judged on its actions. Otherwise, by thinking that they are supporting the CNDDFDD power, in the coming days, countries or organizations are at risk of being responsible for the genocide committed in Burundi and the sub region. On this point, caution should be rigorous.
