Burundi’s VP launches 4th branch of human rights commission

Burundian First Vice-President Gaston Sindimwo Tuesday launched the fourth branch of the east African country's National Independent Human Rights Commission (CNIDH) with a call to international partners to resume their cooperation with Burundi.


“The human rights protection or promotion is a business of the government. That is why Burundi sets up the National Independent Human Rights Commission in 2011 because solutions to Burundian problems will be found by Burundian citizens themselves,” said Sindimwo while officially launching the fourth branch of the CNIDH.

The fourth branch of the Commission covers the country’s western region made up of five provinces mainly Bujumbura municipality, provinces of Bujumbura Rural, Bubanza, Cibitoke and Muramvya.

“The decentralization will enable the Commission to collect all the information about the situation of human rights in Burundi. This fourth branch located in the capital Bujumbura will increase cooperation between the Commission and various stakeholders for the promotion of human rights protection,” said Jean Baptiste Baribonekeza, CNIDH chairman.
