“For instance, the Arusha Agreement which is the strong foundation of the country’s development must be protected”, he says. Ndikumana also says there is a need to set up a follow-up framework to preserve the Arusha Agreement.

For him, the Burundi Constitution must also be protected. “If there is a need to amend the Constitution, the spirit of the Arusha Agreement must be obeyed”, he says.

Apart from the Arusha Agreement and the Constitution, the chairman of Parcem also says that he will also defend the principles of free and fair democratic elections. For this, he says, the strategies to ensure the security for all citizens must be adopted. “We need to set up a zero refugee index”, he says.

Faustin Ndikumana then says cooperation with foreign countries should be promoted again to boost the socio-economic situation in the country. “There is a need to guarantee the economic security for Burundians”, he says.

Gabriel Rufyiri, chairman of Olucome, corruption watchdog, believes that the mediation in Burundi crisis would consider the various prerequisites submitted by the civil society organizations including Olucome, in order to reach lasting solutions to the crisis.

These prerequisites concern, in particular, the immediate cessation of violence and hate speeches, the immediate suspension of the process of amending the constitution, the suspension of the activities of the current Truth and Reconciliation Commission….

Olucome chairman says the mediation must urge all participants in the inter-Burundian session to thoroughly discuss all important points that can help find lasting solutions to Burundi crisis.

“Participants at least should think of Burundi’s best future 50 years ahead”, he says.
