Burundi: Arusha’s agreements, as they are, can they save Burundi today?

Burundi: Arusha’s agreements, as they are, can they save Burundi today?
The answers vary from one individual to another. Some say yes, once implemented as they have been negotiated and signed. While recognizing that these agreements are not perfect, those who support this idea believe that this text has been obtained after many days of discussions on all the questions in Burundi since its independence, with a support of many partners to the United Nations. For them, it is not a document to be rejected, especially that it does not only belong to Burundians, it also belongs to the guarantors of these agreements which so far keep a copy.
By putting a condition of their implementation, many Burundians, who have not read these agreements, recognize them only by sharing positions of responsibility between Hutus and Tutsis (60% for Hutus and 40% for Tutsis and 50% -50% within the defence and security bodies). All that contains the agreement for Burundian Lambda, in addition still a certain lull found after the signing of the cessation agreements of hostilities by the different rebel groups. The defenders of these Arusha agreements believe that they contain many other very interesting points that have not been implemented by successive powers; Each having exploited the points that gave it more interest.
Those who fiercely oppose these agreements believe that it is agreements that have been obtained after negotiations between two Hutu and Tutsis, G7-G10 blocks, which have not been mandated by different ethnic trends; Reason for which the division of positions between Hutus and Tutsis was the only concern of those who negotiated. They believe that it is pure and simple racism; Some even dare to talk about another kind of apartheid. They do not understand how Nelson Mandela who fought racism in his country bonded racism in Burundi. Indeed, with this division of positions between Hutus and Tutsis, the Burundians cease to be Burundian, but will always distinguish between Hutus and Tutsis for sharing the national cake. In addition, it means that there is a category of Burundians who have less rights than another. And where is the Place des Ganwa, TWA and descendants of mixed marriages?
This category of Burundians who categorically reject these agreements find it inadmissible that criminals who have paid blood from Burundians, genocidaires, be amnestied and take on models of the company because they become the country’s leaders. These agreements gave a golden opportunity to genocidaires and the true planners of the assassination of President Ndadaye to temporarily forget the crimes they committed. A real amnesty self. For this category of Burundian, it is a racist agreement, negotiated under a racist stamp with the heads of negotiators, leaders accused of many crimes by Burundians.
The category of moderates considers that the document cannot be rejected in bloc, that it is the result of the Burundian consultations of all trends, which must instead re-evaluate it, correct the imperfections it contains and put it in work effectively. Others believe that Burundians find an opportunity to sit together now, now that they have seen so-called Tutsis powers and those so-called Hutus lead the country without bringing a real peace to the country, and discuss how to live Together in mutual respect and sign agreements to implement with the greatest rigor in the interest of all.
The unfortunate observation is that such an opportunity is not possible in the current political environment. The CNDDFDD power will never give them this opportunity because it not only said that it does not recognize these agreements, it is full of many criminals who have paid the blood of many Burundians, he feared that once the Truth Updated, all its leaders are in court. This is why the military clique in power is ready to stay at all costs.
URN Hitamwoneza knows that dialogue is needed between Burundians to find a solution to so many problems that the country has experienced since its independence; But, we are asking today that there is first justice to separate the good grain from the tangle. Not only that with the times that run, it is inadmissible to sit on the same table with known criminals for having killed our Burundian brothers and sisters, people who have blood on the hands cannot allow That Burundians dialogue in peace to reach the truth of the facts and conclude a sustainable peace agreement. That’s why all Burundians who aspire to peace for all must invest in hunting power criminals who hold it illegally in order to highlight those who could facilitate frank discussions between Burundians to reach peace for all desired.
