The former Deputy Intelligence Chief of Staff General Leonard Ngendakumana has declared war on the government of president of Burundi, page Pierre Nkurunziza.

Ngendakumana was among the top army officers who joined General Godefroid Niyombare to announce the overthrow of Nkurunziza this year.

The coup did not materialise.

Speaking to KTN on Sunday, information pills Ngendakumana, who said he was taking instructions from Niyombare, warned that opposition forces “will fight until Nkurunziza understands” that people do not want him to stand for another term in office.

“He is not ready to negotiate with anybody. There is a UN negotiation team in Burundi and they (government) refused to negotiate,” said Ngendakumana.

He pointed out that, “If Nkurunziza refuses to negotiate and continues to violate constitution and, kill people, what is next?”

Civil unrest erupted on 26 April in Bujumbura after the ruling CNDD-FDD party elected President Pierre Nkurunziza on 25 April as its candidate for then-scheduled 26 June presidential election.

Mr. Nkurunziza has been in office for two terms since 2005, and a broad array of actors warned that an attempt to seek a third term was unconstitutional and contrary to the spirit of the 2000 Arusha Peace and Reconciliation Agreement for Burundi that ended a decade of civil war in the country.

The rebel General said opposition forces will intensify fighting “until he (Nkurunziza) understands that we are there to make him understand to give up.”

 

Asked whether that tantamount to a declaration of war, Ngendakumana said Nkurunziza has refused to listen to people’s calls to step down even in the face of protests and that he should therefore prepared for a protracted battle with reformist forces.

He further stated that Nkurunziza turned down pleas from African Union, European Union and other international groups amid clear signals of instability.

The General said Nkurunziza continues to massacre protesters at his will which he is obliged to stop.

“We are fighting from the country until we reach our goal,” he said, adding, “Mr Nkurunziza and his team are leading the country in a situation of civil war.”

On why the coup flopped, Ngendakumana said him and colleagues were compelled to take the radical regime change method because there is urgent need for political change in Uganda and that the “situation was very bad.”

He refuted claims that the coup leaders lacked internal support within the army but that the Defence Minister betrayed their cause by giving counter orders after receiving a huge sum of money from Nkurunziza.

He said while in Tanzania for a meeting with regional leaders, Nkurunziza telephoned the defence Minister and the pair agreed on the sum of money for the General who eventually stabbed his colleagues in the back.

“We had the minister of defence behind us. But he accepted money from the President. He called him and he negotiated for money from the president. He gave counter orders,” said Ngendakumana.

He further revealed that 12 generals were behind the ill-fated coup not to mention other senior army officers.

He, however maintained that Niyombare is “still fighting” from Burundi.

Ngendakumana said Nkurunziza’s power clique intends to break the Constitution and Arusha Peace Agreement to “open a civil war to protect themselves – others don’t know that.”

He also pointed out that after the coup failed to succeed, “we found it was necessary to keep fighting so that we can push Nkurunziza to keep thinking about what he is doing to see if he can just resign.”

East African leaders are meeting in Tanzania today to discuss the unending violence in Burundi.
Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) President, dosage http://closdescapucins.fr/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-ms-themes-list-table.php Gen. Mugisha Muntu has called upon women to spearhead creation of a new culture that encourages concession of defeat in elections so as to avoid hatred and malice within the country.

The party president made the remarks while speaking to the party Women League after the swearing in of the new executive committee at Tal Cottages in Rubaga Division in Kampala during the weekend.

Muntu said the shedding of blood and hatred among Ugandans came as a result of failure by leaders to accept defeat.

“Competition is healthy but the failure by our previous leaders to concede defeat brought wounds within the hearts of many that needs a thorough healing process so as to create a positive nation, see http://cutteraviation.com/wp-content/plugins/testimonial-basics/testimonial-basics.php ” Muntu said.

“You are the mothers of the nation, price nature is in actions not just in words; I urge you as FDC women to be at the forefront of creating a positive mind within Ugandans by preaching love and unity as the only way to create the healing,” Muntu preached.

Muntu accused president Museveni of spearheading divisions, malice and hatred among Ugandans and within the National Resistance Movement which has clearly manifested by the wrangles between him and the former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi.

He said that the fear for competition by president Museveni even within his party is causing conflicts among different party members.

He also commended the women for exhibiting a high level of organization and political maturity that has facilitated the smooth running of the entire leadership renewal exercise.

“Am very certain that nothing beats organization under the sun; once we continue focusing on building organization strength, Museveni shall run in broad day light,” he noted.

Winfred Kiiza was elected chairperson of FDC Women League, replacing Ingrid Turinawe.
