On The Line: Danny Gold Discusses Burundi’s Controversial Presidential Elections

​Follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/vicenews) where we’ll announce the next topic for On The Line.

VICE News correspondent Danny Gold (https://twitter.com/DGisserious) joined On The Line to discuss the Burundi’s controversial presidential election.

In April, Burundi’s incumbent president, Pierre Nkurunziza, announced plans to run for a third term in office — a move many claimed was unconstitutional. The political maneuver sparked violent clashes between Nkurunziza’s supporters and those opposed to his third term, triggering a wave of government-sponsored repression and intimidation. Danny Gold traveled to Burundi for VICE News where he spoke to citizens on both sides of the political divide for “Burundi on the Brink.”

Election Results and Post-Poll Violence: Burundi On The Brink (Dispatch 8)

Though the presidential elections in Burundi have concluded, political violence surrounding the controversial vote has not simmered. On the night of July 22, members of the Imbonerakure, the youth wing of the African nation’s ruling party, are alleged to have murdered a member of the FNL opposition party in the capital of Bujumbura.

On July 24, the results of the election were announced and as was widely expected, Pierre Nkurunziza was declared the winner of a third five-year term as president.

Following the announcement, VICE News visited opposition and pro-Nkurunziza neighborhoods in Burundi’s capital, where residents have vastly different opinions about the legitimacy of his third term.

Violence and Protests on Polling Day: Burundi On The Brink (Dispatch 7)

Following a night of intense gunfire and explosions in Burundi’s capital of Bujumbura that left at least one civilian and one police officer dead, voters turned out in low numbers for the country’s controversial presidential election, in which President Pierre Nkurunziza is seeking a third term that critics charge is unconstitutional.

The body of an opposition member was found dead in the commune of Nyakabiga, and residents have accused supporters of the ruling party of planting the body as an act of intimidation. As Red Cross workers removed the body from the neighborhood, anti-Nkurunziza songs, dances, and chants erupted from a crowd of residents, delivering one of the most open displays of defiance against the president that the capital has seen in many weeks.

Rally Of The Ruling Party: Burundi On The Brink (Dispatch 6)

Thousands of jubilant supporters attended a campaign rally for Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza and his CNDD-FDD party in Cibitoke Province on July 17, in what is expected to be one of his last public appearances ahead of Tuesday’s controversial election.

Nkurunziza has been pushing ahead with his controversial bid for a third term — despite pressure from regional leaders, the international community, months of deadly violence in the capital of Bujumbura, and an aborted coup d’etat led by the his former ally, Godefroid Niyombare.

VICE News attended the rally, and spoke with a former high-ranking official of Burundi’s ruling party, who is now living in exile in Rwanda.

Nighttime Violence in Bujumbura: Burundi On The Brink (Dispatch 5)

In the past several weeks, gunfire and explosions have pierced the night in Bujumbura, Burundi’s capital. The identity of the shooters has remained a mystery, although many suspect the police, in conjunction with the Imbonerakure, the youth wing of the ruling party. Considered by some to be an armed militia, the Imbonerakure have been accused of helping police quell dissidents. In neighborhoods where residents are opposed to Burundi’s ruling party and therefore subject to the night raids, people have organized to protect themselves — destroying entrances to neighborhoods, creating a communication system that notifies residents when an intruder has entered the community.

VICE News visits an opposition neighborhood in Bujumbura during the night to see what defense measures have been put in place, and witnesses the aftermath of the violence.

Forced Out of the Forest: The Lost Tribe of Uganda

Removed from their forest dwellings by government authorities in order to establish the Mgahinga and Bwindi Impenetrable National Parks in Uganda, the Batwa pygmies now live in slums around Kisoro, a town which sees tourists stream through each year to visit the parks, which were created to protect the country’s endangered mountain gorillas.

While conservation tourism booms, however, most Batwa are considered ultra poor, have extremely low life expectancy, and have been struggling to have their rights recognized for three decades.

Over recent years, a Batwa organization called UOBDU has sought legal recourse, arguing that the land for the national parks was unlawfully seized from the indigenous people. This is yet to be resolved.

VICE News films with the Batwa pygmies, where they struggle against discrimination and poverty to survive in Uganda.

The Spoils Of War: Burundi On The Brink (Dispatch 4)

Burundi’s crisis deepens following last week’s reported clashes between an unidentified rebel group and the Burundi Defense Force in the northwestern region of Burundi. The Burundian military killed over 30 militants and captured 170, according to the army’s spokesman. While the presidential vote is still scheduled for July 21, it appears President Pierre Nkurunziza now faces an apparent armed rebellion.

VICE News attended the Burundian army’s press conference in the Cibitoke province, where the military showed off the weapons seized after the conflict, as well as their captives, alleged to be the rebels responsible for attacking the Burundian military.

The Lost Tribe of Uganda (Trailer)

Watch the full length: http://bit.ly/1Jci9CD

Expelled from their ancestral homes by the creation of the Mgahinga and Bwindi Impenetrable National Parks in southwestern Uganda, the Batwa pygmies have been reduced to a small community of around 1,000 individuals living in slums around Kisoro, a town where tourists stream each year to visit the parks and see its famed mountain gorillas.

While conservation tourism booms, however, most Batwa are considered ultra poor, have extremely low life expectancy, and have been struggling to have their rights recognized for three decades.

Over recent years, a Batwa organization called UOBDU has sought legal recourse, arguing that the land for the national parks was unlawfully seized from the indigenous people. This is yet to be resolved.

VICE News learns how Batwa pygmies, having being forced from the forest, struggle against discrimination and poverty to survive in Uganda.

Firebombed Media: Burundi on the Brink (Dispatch 3)

Burundi once enjoyed a vibrant media scene, with many independent journalists and radio stations operating freely. Yet when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced his bid for a highly contested third term in office in April, it sparked mass protests. Since then, authorities and pro-government bodies have intimidated and arrested journalists.

The attempted coup d’etat in capital Bujumbura on May 13 was the tipping point for free media in Burundi. The offices of independent radio stations were firebombed for reporting information about the coup and fierce fighting broke out over control of the state media headquarters. Most of the offices remain shuttered to this day, and access to information has been suppressed in the weeks since, as rumors of a civil war run rampant throughout the city.

VICE News goes on a tour of media offices that have been firebombed, and visits the last standing independent newspaper in Bujumbura.

Inside a Bujumbura Opposition Stronghold: Burundi on the Brink (Dispatch 2)

The Buterere neighborhood of Burundi’s capital city Bujumbura is a stronghold of support for the National Forces of Liberation, one of the main opposition parties currently campaigning against President Pierre Nkurunziza.

Buterere is also the site of many demonstrations and clashes between protesters and police since Nkurunziza announced his candidacy for a highly contested third term in April.

On the morning of Thursday July 9, VICE News arrived at the entrance of Buterere to find sporadic but consistent gunfire and a roadblock built by protesters. After the gunfire settled, police officers forced the demonstrators to tear down the barricade.

Once clear of the police, VICE News entered Buterere to hear testimony from residents about what it’s like inside one of Bujumbura’s opposition strongholds.

Fleeing to Rwanda: Burundi On The Brink (Dispatch 1)

Over 150,000 people have fled the small Eastern African nation of Burundi since political strife, intimidation, and unrest have plagued the country in recent months. Many of those migrants have sought refuge in neighboring Rwanda. Nearly 30,000 civilians are now living in Mahama refugee camp, one of the largest UNHCR camps built since the crisis began in April 2015.

A large number of activists, journalists, politicians, and opposition leaders have also fled Burundi for their own personal safety, settling in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali.

VICE News stops through Rwanda en route to Burundi and speaks with young men at Mahama camp and an activist in Kigali about what life is like amid the current political crisis.
