According to Mr. Mutabazi, the determination of the Head of State to recover all the public funds embezzled by certain high officials of the country in collaboration with certain businessmen and the multiple efforts made to bring peace to the East of the DR Congo, improving the quality of governance in Burundi and bringing about reforms in the justice sector, are also taken into consideration.

They urge all officials responsible for embezzlement of public funds to return them without delay. He again expressed their support for the Head of State for his firm commitment to defend the interests of the people of Burundi in order to put out of harm’s way any person responsible for corruption and embezzlement and of any kind.

Mr. Mutabazi further pointed out that those thirteen political parties encourage all political parties and the entire population of Burundi to stand behind the President of the Republic in his relentless fight against poverty. He promised to always support the Head of State without reservation, in all his efforts and actions in favor of the harmonious and sustainable development of the people of Burundi.
