Burundi: Where is Bunyoni imprisoned?


The national group in charge of human rights in Burundi, CNIDH informs that it has visited the former Prime Minister of Burundi, Alain-Guillaume Bunyoni, but does not say where he is.

This is the decision that General Bunyoni was taken by the national authorities, after the Burundian Minister of Central Government, Security and Public Development, Martin Niteretse, confirmed that General Bunyoni is still wanted by the prosecution.

In a message posted on its Twitter page indicating that he has been suspended, CNIDH does not say where he was found or what level suspended him, but that “He is fine. “He has never been killed or anything wrong since he was suspended.”

When BBC asked him where he was detained, the head of CNIDH said that it was not his responsibility.

Meanwhile, behind the CNIDH message, the source of the national transport agency told the BBC that it is in its hands.

General Bunyoni became the first Prime Minister since President Evariste Ndayishimiye came to power after the 2020 elections.

He was removed from office in September last year after being replaced by General Gervais Ndirakobuca, since then he has not returned to the public.

Bunyoni was always considered the number two in the country and one of the most powerful people in the ruling CNDD-FDD party.

What has been charged so far has not been unknown.
