Burundi Rejects AU Deployment of East Africa Standby Force

Eastern Africa Standby Force23rd December 2015, Burundi has rejected African Union deployment of peacekeeping troops in the country.

In barely a week after AU agreed it would send peacekeeping force to the country amid fears of escalating violence plunging the country back towards a civil war, now Burundi has rejected AU Force Deployment with its parliament saying it would be considered an invasion force

Burundi’s National Security Council (NSC) which includes President Pierre Nkurunziza and his entire cabinet on Tuesday rejected the AU’s move to deploy the force.

Foreign Minister Alain Nyamitwe criticized the African Union for not consulting his government before deciding on sending peacekeepers.

Burundi’s crisis started in April 2015 and worsened when President Pierre Nkuruziza was re-elected on a controversial third term.

His third bid into the highest office was termed unconstitutional.

In the recent few months, chaos and killings have been witnessed in the country’s capital Bunjumbura.
