New Burundi leaders talk about rights but deny 'outsiders'



Nairobi, Kenya Burundi's new chairman announced on Thursday that his regime respects human rights, but warned that "outsiders should not be dictated".


President Averyist Nadishimiye took office two months after the sudden death of his predecessor, ending his 15-year reign with deadly repression and vehemently denying external investigations. Now the country is looking forward to more follow up.

“The bursaries should speak freely. Burundians should listen to each other, but outsiders should not decide what to do, ”said Nadishimiye, and accused the colonialists of social division.

The new president said, "All Burundi are equal before the law. He invited them to come back to the boycott and create a new Burundi. He said his government would renegotiate with all the other political groups to reach a peaceful settlement. Ready to get started." "

Nadishimi, 52, won the May election as a ruling party candidate and took office in August, but the government has thrown Pierre Narkunija's death into the East African country indefinitely from a heart attack.

Ministers have resorted to the Constitutional Court, seeking to hold presidential elections as early as possible. Opposition leader Agathan Rawasa, who has alleged these manipulations, has previously rejected the challenge of the election results.

None of the heads of other East African countries took part in the swearing-in.

At Thursday's ceremony, there was no immediate change in the government's belief that divine protection was sufficient for widespread coronaviruses, with little sign of a face mask or social disturbance. Despite the suspicion that Nkurunziza Kovid-19 died.

Some countries and human rights groups have hoped that the new president, an ally of Nurkunziza, may enter in some ways from his predecessor. "President (Cyril) Ramaphosa is keen to work with President Everist Nidishimiye as Burundi leads the people towards a better life," South Africa said in a statement.

The U.S. State Department recognizes the transfer of power peacefully and urges the new government to "include a broader representation of political stakeholders"; Release of members of political parties, civil society and journalists for arbitrary arrests for election-related activities; And investigating and pursuing accountability for voter bullying allegations. "

Amnesty International called on Nadishimi to curb allegations of killings and other abuses on the ruling party's Imbonurkur Youth Wing and urged the sending of jailed journalists and others to jail for using their human rights.

"Burundians who commit crimes must face the law," Nadishimi said in his speech Thursday.

The rights group has urged a new leader in Burundi to investigate the deadly violence that led to the third time since the Narkunija verdict in 2015, which many called unconstitutional.

The United Nations Human Rights Office has reported more than 300 extrajudicial killings during the uprising and has since been deported, according to United Nations rights chief Zid Raid al-Hussein, who, in recent times, has called Burundi the most "slaughterhouse.". "

The Burundi government has denied accusations of targeting its people, calling it malicious propaganda of dissenters. Enraged by the investigation, it became the first country to withdraw from the International Criminal Court.

"Eurest Nadishimiye Burundi has the opportunity to improve its human rights record," said DePros Mukena, Amnesty Director for East and South Africa. "We want to abolish the repression reflected by the previous government tenure."
