Museveni Hosts Burundi Peace Talks Monday

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni aims to jumpstart fresh peace negotiations between the government of Burundi and opposition groups in Kampala on Monday.

Backed by the East African Community and the United Nations Security Council, the peace talks are aimed at restoring peace and security in Burundi following months of violence in the capital, Bujumbura and other parts of the country.

It is not clear if participants will discuss a proposal from the African Union Peace and Security Council to deploy up to 5,000 peacekeepers in Burundi to help protect civilians.

The African Union has reportedly assured Burundi that it has no ulterior motive in its proposal.

But on Saturday, thousands of Burundians demonstrated against the AU’s proposal through protests led by Vice President Gaston Sindimwo. Sindimwo says Burundi’s army is capable of halting violence and protecting Burundians regardless of their political affiliations.
