“This prayer breakfast is aimed at fighting against an enemy that will come from outside. To be able to defeat our enemies, we have to abide by the legacy of Burundi’s Independence Hero Prince Louis Rwagasore who promoted unity. Unity is at the origin for cohesion and development,” said Nkurunziza.

Nkurunziza invited Burundian citizens to avoid “false and divisive” messages propagated by social media and some false information according to which a “genocide” is looming in Burundi.

The prayer breakfast was organized by the Burundian parliament. Enditem
