Burundi continues to grapple with unprecedented levels of violence after President Pierre Nkurunziza refused to step down after serving his mandatory two terms in office.

The UN Chief also welcomed the communiqué of the meeting of the African Union Peace and Security Council, held on 13 June, at the level of Heads of State and Government, which provides “a clear way forward towards peaceful and credible elections in Burundi.”

Mr. Ban expressed deep gratitude to his Special Envoy for the Great Lakes Region, Said Djinnit, for his “tireless efforts” “impartially” facilitating the dialogue among Burundian stakeholders during May and June of this year.

As elections draw near, the Secretary-General called on all Burundian political leaders to address the current political crisis with the highest sense of responsibility, urging them to resume political dialogue “earnestly”, with a view to creating an environment conducive for peaceful, credible and inclusive elections.

Burundi’s elections are scheduled for July 15.

The phrase “The early bird catches the worm.” Comes to mind as I try to analyse what constructive engagement entails.

Recently a forum was held to discuss the service delivery and accountability by present leaders with regards to the promises made in the 2011 elections.

Social media was abuzz with the news of this dialogue dubbed “Account before your promise” #2011Promises.

In as much as I would like to applaud this initiative I feel it comes a little bit too late.

I feel at this particular point in time it was quite ineffective. Why should we really wait for so long before to air our grievances?

The outcome of such a dialogue I presume would be to find a way forward, approved http://couragelion.org/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp.php provide viable working alternatives and also provide a benchmark to gauge the performance of our esteemed leaders with regards to promises made.

In essence parties involved in constructive engagement should be allowed time to voice any frustrations and also give respective parties time to act accordingly.

I summarily discovered that this dialogue unfortunately served as a way to make our esteemed leaders look ineffective which in turn takes away from the whole purpose of constructive engagement. Such little progress for the past five years is in the least very demoralising.

Frightfully i suspect this dialogue will also serve to benefit our esteemed leaders not only will they have ample time to prepare an arsenal of more lies and excuses to feed us.

We have equipped them with particular grievances to address when they come to seek re-election in 2016.

It is no surprise that we will find many of our esteemed leaders setting out to achieve five year progress in about six months which in turn affects the quality of what we receive.

And in this case I will have to agree with Presidential Aspirant John Patrick Amama Mbabazi what we need more than anything is quality as opposed to quantity.

A program like UPE is a good example of rushed implementation in order to satisfy election promises.

We are handing them our afflictions so close to a election period it negates the whole process of constructive engagement. Let us try to plan and put such platforms to best use.

The head of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Anthony Lake last week appealed “in the name of humanity and common decency” for a halt to the worsening violence against children in South Sudan that has seen boys reportedly castrated and left to bleed to death and girls as young as eight who have been gang raped and murdered.

“The violence against children in South Sudan has reached a new level of brutality,” Lake said in a statement issued last Wednesday.

Since it was government that conducted full scale military offensive against our forces in Rubkona, Guit, Mayom, Koch, Mayandiit, Leer as well as Panyijiar counties in Southern part of state on 27 of April 2015, it’s the same SPLA/Juba faction responsible for all these inhuman acts, especially the killing of innocent children and other local civilians killed in areas held by the SPLA/IO forces.”
