WHAT’S happening in Burundi is a disgrace. President Pierre Nkurunziza’s response to the people who protest his seeking of the third-term has been despotic. He’s violently cracked down on his citizens, illegalized protests against his third-term aspirations, and his officials threatened to shut down the media houses that broadcast the protests. This is tyrannical rule at its best in my opinion. I wonder for how long it will persist.
