A few weeks ago, Burundi launched the electoral process, while the world had all its attention on the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now become a disaster for the earth.


In view of the denial and the very little attention given to this pandemic in Burundi, today facts are accusing and confronting the decision-makers. What a contradiction between speech and reality, when the current leaders claim to preserve democracy by holding elections at such a particular time as this when the country should be in a state of emergency?


What kind of democratic spirit and system is this that refuses to protect and rescue the population currently dying in large numbers?
Indeed, those in health care services constantly reveal that the number of cases of COVID-19 has considerably increased during the electoral campaign period that was daily gathering huge crowds, without any prior protection measures, because President Pierre Nkurunziza continually and publicly stated that God is protecting Burundi from COVID-19. Today, the death toll is increasing every day, hospitals are full of dying patients, everything is known, the information is no longer hidden, but the Minister of Health says nothing, and the Government does nothing!


Once again, it is crucial to act and put in place, without further delay, effective mechanisms for prevention and rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Burundi.  The Burundian people have the right to protection and security, and that is primarily the responsibility of the State.


Since last week, the Burundi First Lady, Madam Denise Bucumi,  is on medical treatment for COVID-19 in Nairobi, with four other people who travelled with her and ended up also being tested positive.


Bearing the primary responsibility for the safety and general well-being of the entire Burundian population, President Pierre Nkurunziza should do everything possible to rescue all the other Coronavirus patients as he is doing for his wife. To date, all measures taken so far to ensure the prevention of the pandemic and care for those already affected are still inadequate.


Currently, the population left on its own, while unreported deaths are countless. It is time for the population to wake up and apply all known protective measures and use all means available to prevent the propagation of the virus. There are natural products, abundant in Africa and in Burundi, that are quite cheap and accessible throughout our territory. Burundians are urged to gather all information, get the products and use them, even as a preventive measure. Here again, the population needs guidance if they are to take care of themselves adequately.


Burundians, who understand the seriousness of the danger facing our country, dear partners and friends of Burundi, join us and let us all raise our voices, call for help for the Burundi people! Let us shake those in charge, that they may take urgent action.
COVID-19 is a matter of peace and security. Let the African Union Peace and Security Council and the UN Security Council know that the weapon of this virus is as cruel as the bomb and grenade. It is time for you to call on the Government of Burundi to take responsibility for silencing the Coronavirus Gun.
