Instead, he focused on the threat of the Somali militant group Al-Shabab.

Makamba Music : Green Hills, Jingle Punks; YouTube Audio Library Burundi , officially the Republic of Burundi, is a landlocked country in the African Great Lakes region of Southeast Africa, bordered by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. It is also sometimes considered part of Central Africa. Burundi's capital is Bujumbura. Although the country is landlocked, much of the southwestern border is adjacent to Lake Tanganyika. The Twa, Hutu and Tutsi peoples have lived in Burundi for at least five hundred years. For more than 200 years, Burundi had an indigenous kingdom. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Germany colonized the region. After the First World War and its defeat, it ceded the territory to Belgium. The latter ruled Burundi and Rwanda as a European colony known as Ruanda-Urundi. Their intervention exacerbated social differences between the Tutsi and Hutu, which contributed to political unrest in the region. There was civil war in Burundi as it fought for independence in the middle of the twentieth century. Presently, Burundi is governed as a presidential representative democratic republic. Burundi is one of the five poorest countries in the world. It has one of the lowest per capita GDPs of any nation in the world. The country has suffered from warfare, corruption and poor access to education. Burundi is densely populated and has had substantial emigration as young people seek opportunities elsewhere. According to a 2012 DHL Global Connectedness Index, Burundi is the least globalized of 140 surveyed countries. According to the Global Hunger Index of 2013, Burundi has an indicator ratio of 38.8, earning the nation the distinction of being the hungriest country in the world in terms of percentage. Germany established armed forces in Ruanda and Burundi at the end of the 19th century, colonizing the area and establishing German East Africa. After being defeated in World War I, Germany was forced to cede "control" of a section of the former German East Africa to Belgium. On October 20, 1924, this land, which consisted of modern-day Rwanda and Burundi, became a Belgian League of Nations mandate territory. In practical terms it was considered part of the Belgian colonial empire, and was known as Ruanda-Urundi. The Belgians allowed Ruanda-Urundi to continue its kingship dynasty. Following World War II, Ruanda-Urundi was classified as a United Nations Trust Territory under Belgian administrative authority. During the 1940s, a series of policies caused divisions throughout the country. On October 4, 1943, powers were split in the legislative division of Burundi's government between chiefdoms and lower chiefdoms. Chiefdoms were in charge of land, and lower sub-chiefdoms were established. Native authorities also had powers. In 1948, Belgium allowed the region to form political parties. These factions contributed to gaining Burundi's independence from Belgium. On January 20, 1959, Burundi's ruler Mwami Mwambutsa IV requested from the Belgian Minister of Colonies a separation of Burundi and Rwanda and a dissolution of Ruanda-Urundi. Six months later, political parties were formed to bring attention to Burundi's independence from Europe and to separate Rwanda from Burundi. The first of these political parties was the Union for National Progress (UPRONA). Burundi's push for independence was influenced by the instability and ethnic persecution suffered by its peoples in Rwanda. In November 1959, Rwandese Hutu attacked the Tutsi and massacred them by the thousands. Many Tutsi escaped to Uganda and Burundi to find freedom from persecution. The Hutu took power in Rwanda by winning the Belgian-run elections in 1960. The UPRONA, a multi-ethnic unity party led by Prince Louis Rwagasore and the Christian Democratic Party, (PDC) became the most prominent organization throughout Burundi-Urundi. After UPRONA's victory in legislative elections, Prince Rwagasore was assassinated on October 13 in 1961. The country claimed independence on July 1, 1962, and legally changed its name from Ruanda-Urundi to Burundi. Mwami Mwambutsa IV was named king. On September 18, 1962, just over two months after declaring independence from Belgium, Burundi joined the United Nations. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burundi

Hundreds of people fled Burundi's capital on Saturday ahead of an expected arms crackdown which has raised fears of a wave of fresh violence. President Pierre Nkurunziza announced a Saturday deadline for people to hand over illegal firearms to authorities or face police action, in a bid to stem what the government says months of violence and protests over Nkurunziza's election to a third term in office this year. Among those fleeing their homes in the capital Bujumbura, some carried possessions such as bed mats on their heads and their children on their backs. A resident said he feared that the government's forceful disarmament program would trigger more widespread violence. "As you can see, people are moving out of this place. We have listened to what the president said and we have also listened to what the speaker of the Senate said. So we felt we cannot wait to suffer. That's why we decided to take whatever we could carry and move away," said Congera Moussa, a resident of Bujumbura. Another anguished resident fears for how his family's lives will turn out after fleeing from home. "I feel very bad and it pains me so much, I don't even know how to express myself. If I say, I may end up saying something awful, because we don't have freedom where we have moved to. It's not the same as staying in our homes. Our children will not go to school any more. It's very frustrating," said Hatungimana Ibrahim. According to the United Nations, an estimated 200 people have been killed in Burundi since April, when Nkurunziza announced his ultimately successful presidential bid. Several senior officials in both the government and opposition have also been killed in the recent past. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled Burundi amid the crisis. The government said the arms crackdown aims to restore peace and have told the police to use all means necessary. Fearing a possible wave of killings and clashes, residents in the capital made a plea to the president, asking for him to ensure that the suffering many Burundians have been going through ends sooner rather than later. "He needs to see and know what to do because his people are suffering. We voted in peace but this is what we are going through. We beg him to do something so that this suffering ends as soon as possible," said Moussa. "Women with children on their backs are carrying their belongings on their heads. We ask the president. He is a parent too. The Bible says you should love your brother as you love your heart. This has to end," said Ibrahim. It is unknown whether any arms have already been surrendered as concerns about how the measure will be enforced rise.

For more WORLD NEWS "SUBSCRIBE" US BUJUMBURA: The capital of Burundi was quiet but tense on Thursday after a night of heavy gunfire, particularly in the restive neighbourhood of Musaga, where residents spoke of running battles between stone-throwing youths and police. Reuters reporters entering Musaga saw dozens of police armed with automatic rifles and tear gas launchers, as well as a handful of soldiers. There were no signs of the crowds that have gathered early each morning for the last three weeks in the capital Bujumbura to demonstrate against President Pierre Nkurunziza's decision to seek a third term in elections scheduled for next month. "There was shooting through the night. Tension was very high," 28-year-old Musaga resident Bosco, who did not want to give his last name, told Reuters. It was unclear if there had been any casualties. More than 20 people have died in nearly a month of unrest, including a failed military coup, but the major fear is the power struggle re-opening old wounds in a county with a long history of genocide and civil war between its Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups. In a state television address late on Wednesday, Nkurunziza stressed the need for national unity, saying that Burundi's bloody past - including a civil war that ended in 2005 after the deaths of 300,000 people - could not be ignored.
