Pierre Nkurunziza

Despite widespread protests against Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza‘s bid to be re-elected for a third term, he is adamant to continue his rule.

As a result, a coup attempt has been launched in Burundi to try to overthrow Nkurunziza, BBC reports.

However, the outcome of the coup is still unclear.

The presidency claims that the coup has been foiled, and that perpetrators will be brought to justice.

Nkurunziza was at a summit in Tanzania during the coup, but has since left the summit and is trying to get back into Burundi.

      Nigeria should have a higher expectation, and sometimes live up to that expectation than any other African country. It should be the good example, that others should follow. It’s long time overdue, for Nigeria to follow democracy and progress. Nigeria is in a position to be better, do and act better. I expected GEJ to do the right thing, bcos that’s what he’s supposed to do. And if he did otherwise, he should be adamantly condemned. Nigeria is not a dictatorship or military regime, so democracy and progress should be the focus.
      Nigeria, has the most educated group, very influential, the most black population, has So much potentials, I mean if not for obvious poor leadership, Nigeria should be doing so much better and be in the top list if developed countries and be a good example to other African country and the world.

    Greedy selfish little brat wants to continue being presidents even if it destroys the country. Really, doesn’t recognise the first term because it was conferred on him by parliament. It must be through the ballot box or it doesn’t count as presidency. Like a kid who eats a huge bowl of fufu in the afternoon and insists it is breakfast because the bowl was labeled “BREAKFAST”. He now picks another plates and demands another bowl of fufu this time for lunch. Really! And he has some small brained judges interpretating to his convenience. ICC is watching, go and ask Gbagbo.
