Jan 7, 2022

KIRUNDO January 7th (ABP) – As part of the tightening of security in Kirundo province, its Governor Albert Hatungimana, along with the police and the justice representative, went on Tuesday January 4, 2021 to Nyakarama village in Bugabira commune, Kirundo province (northern Burundi), to inquire about the reason that prompted 12 Rwandans to take refuge in the same locality, a check in Kirundo province by ABP has revealed.

Those Rwandans made up of six men, five women and a small child say they have fled the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine compulsory for the people of Rwanda. The governor of Kirundo said it is incomprehensible to assist people fleeing their country when there is no war, rather that everyone should respect the measures taken by the government. Governor Hatungimana winked at the people from Bugabira, asking them to always remain vigilant and no longer allow those Rwandans to cross the border through unknown places, as part of continuing to prevent the pandemic of COVID-19. The 12 Rwandans were transferred to the headquarters of Kirundo province to await their repatriation. What is astonishing, those refugees do not agree to consume industrial food or drinks, meat, and so on. They also refused testing for COVID-19.

It is worth recalling that Kirundo province also handed over 9 Rwandans to the authorities of Rwanda last week; they too said they had fled the COVID-19 vaccine.
