“I think there is no doubt of military training provided to Burundians in refugee camps in Rwanda. It is evident. Some reports issued by some independent organizations clearly said that there are Burundian refugees doing military training in camps in Rwanda,” said Nyamitwe.

He stressed, “We will continue to urge the end of those trainings as they do not help in the restoration of cooperation between both countries.”

Rwanda hosts about 50,000 Burundian refugees who fled insecurity since March.

Those Burundian citizens who fled to Rwanda are part of some 200,000 persons into exile in neighboring countries.

In a related development, Nyamitwe indicated that there is also “evidence” that some weapons had infiltrated to Burundi from Rwanda.

“The latest of the incidents is the car found near Lake Tanganyika in the hands of a Burundian citizen who also has a Rwandan citizenship. He admitted to have been smuggling arms from Rwanda to Burundi,” said Nyamitwe.

Burundi is facing a political turmoil since April when Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza announced his bid for a third term in violation of the constitution, according to the opposition and the civil society.
This political crisis has led to the killing of more than 300 people. Enditem
