Bujumbura– In only two weeks, two senior officials have been killed in cold blood following the attacks by gunmen dressed in army uniforms as FNL party accuses the ruling CDD-FDD to be carrying attacks, Great Lakes Voice reports.
Five men called on the home of Leonard Nduwimana, a local National Liberation Forces (FNL) official, on Wednesday night. When he stepped out of the house, they then tied him up, took him away and shot him dead.
Our reporter in Bujumbura says that FNL has passed press release to the local media, accusing the Mr. Pierre Nkurunziza’s government, to be carrying out serial killings basing on “Political differences on how the country is managed”.
Another FNL official was killed two weeks ago under similar circumstances. Several such incidents have occurred in the southern Muhuta region where the FNL and ruling CNDD-FDD party members settle political scores.
A wave of attacks has hit Burundi in recent weeks as security forces crack down on “armed bandits” they accuse of being behind such incidents. The opposition election boycott this year raised fears of a resurgence of violence in Burundi, a small central Africa country emerging from the ravages of a civil war.
The state TV (RTNB) was quoted as saying that the police have launched the investigations to find out who are behind the killings. This has come when Human rights groups criticizes, Mr. Nkurunziza government to be carrying out Repression of Political Opposition.
In recent Presidential campaigns, opposition parties met with obstacles in carrying out activities. Human Rights Watch documented 120 politically motivated arrests between July 2008 and April 2009, and arrests continue unabated.
