In the recently ended Africa Union summit in Ethiopia, the heads of states made it clear that they would not send in peace keeping troops in Burundi, but instead they will send in a delegation to chat the way forward for the people of Burundi.
The sad reality on the ground is that, the civilians— especially women and children– are suffering. Men with guns running around killing people because no one is ready to stand up and say enough is enough. It is as if, African presidents do not see these killings as an issue… or maybe they have already seen worse, expecting more before acting.
According to Africa, ICC is an issue that almost every head of state had a say about. This confirms to common citizens that something is not right with their leaders and that they only fear ICC because they have think secrets that only ICC can call them to justice.
ICC with should be a personal issue has been made into a continental threat. And the more they are willing to match out, the pain they will cause to the innocent people who would live regretting what their leaders did.
Burundi by now needs African people to unite against oppression. The president of Burundi, also a future candidate to ICC, is a happy man because his cronies are fighting hard to have him and other leaders planning to do the same shielded from crimes against humanity.
The ban of AU peace keeping forces in Burundi is a clear indication that he wants no one else to see how his security forces are murdering unarmed men and women on the streets. But because no one among the African presidents could see this, then this silence is a confirmation that Mr. Pierre Nkurunziza is doing right.
I hate Evil.
