Police have in the past urged car owners to procure software that enhances effective car security due to increased car robberies in the country.

It was yet unclear whether suspects had been held.

Opio, who had some hearing problems, was helped by his wife who is as well the complainant in this case to interpret what the court was saying.

It was quite unclear and challenging for court to know whether Opio denied or admitted the charges against him because the feedback from him to court wasn’t very clear.

Court then decided to remand Opio shortly till November 12 when he will be brought to court for further mention of his case.

The court was presided over by his worship, John Michael Apedu.

Burundi, he told reporters, had estimated it needed $2.1 billion to finance its development programmes aimed at boosting economic growth and fighting poverty between 2012 and 2016. “The government estimates that it will be able to come up with 48% of this amount. For the rest, we’re asking for support from different partners,” he said, adding that he was “optimistic” that the needed donations would come through.

Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza had been scheduled to take part in the donors’ conference, but cancelled last Friday.

Rufyikiri told reporters the president had run into “impediments”, without offering further explanation, stressing though that more than 10 Burundi government ministers were in Geneva for the conference.
The vice president meanwhile hailed what he called Burundi’s advanced democratic standards, stressing the high level of freedom of expression in the country.
A spike in violence in Burundi late last year led many observers to fear the country could slide back into full-blown civil conflict, which ended in a 2006 ceasefire agreement after 13 years of civil war that killed nearly 300 000 people.

Rufyikiri however insisted repeatedly that “war is history in Burundi.” “Burundi has a past, Burundi has a dark past, Burundi has had time to evolve, to take another path, to join the modernising countries,” he said.

He pointed for instance to upcoming elections in 2015, which he insisted would “happen in a multi-party framework.”
