Burundi’s Warring Parties Agree to Resume Talks

Bujumbura-The warring parties in Burundi have agreed to resume talks aimed at ending the country’s political stalemate following a failed coup.
President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda chaired a high level East African Community political dialogue among Burundi stakeholders.
“I urged the Barundi people to forget their past sectarian political differences and build their country on unity, emulating their first post independence leader Prince Rwagasore who led Burundi to independence in 1961 under the UPRONA party which was a nationalist and patriotic pro- people party, but who was murdered by colonial agents led by a priest, there after ushering half a century of instability and suffering to the Barundi to this day”. President Museveni in a press statement shortly after the dialogue.
Focus on development
“What is important to the people of Burundi is prosperity, and to be prosperous they must settle down, talk less about power and term limits but become producers for the market.I also urge them to support the integration of East Africa which offers them bigger opportunities and markets for their products, and through which they will become prosperous. Musevni noted that “a conducive environment for private sector growth and attracting investments can only happen when there is peace and Unity’.
Burundi has been in political tamoil since a failed coup in May this year.
