Lead-up to Burundi election marred by unrest

Political campaigns in Burundi have ended ahead of a general election on Wednesday.
They have been marred by violence and hate speech, with both sides blaming one another.
As Al Jazeera’s Catherine Soi reports, health experts have also raised concerns that there are not enough safeguards to help contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

      No wonder this a country where crooks have taken over the wealth of Burundi. As every dictatorship, they do not look out for its citizens.

      @luke shaw After this pandemic whats the difference between Burundians and them. At least Burundians have community spirit and look after each other. In UK don’t care if you drop dead tomorrow only ‘me, me, me’ Secondly living there was depressing and empty. Millions of them are on anti depressants, they live in tiny homes, drive in tiny narrow roads. What a joke.

      @S Hussein (K, that’s a different topic…but you didn’t acknowledge your statement was wrong, & this quote was 100% correct: ”of london, you can’t say: ‘thousands of people…and not one automobile !!! No electronic devices’ ”

      How are you going to drive a car through that mass of people? There hundreds of thousands of cars in every country. What a dipshit, try leaving the house once in a while

    Nature doesn’t respect politicians, government or anything civilisation thinks is important….while power crazed leaders continue to puff out their chests, nature is chipping away at the edges.
