Frederic Nzeyimana describes the little known reality of the genocide against the Burundi Hutu in 1972. Over 300,000 men, women and children were annihilated.

Nzeyimana and Phil Taylor highlight the similarities of the demographic and political components of Burundi and Rwanda. This connects to the assassination of three Hutu Burundian presidents -- in 1972, October 21 of 1993 and April of 1994 when Kagame/RPF shot down the plane carrying Burundian Hutu President Cyhprien Ntaryamir and Rwandan Hutu President Juvenal Habyarimana.

Nzeyiman and Taylor discuss the role of the Arusha Agreement setting the standards for the Burundi elections. Standards were met, and Burundi then implemented Constitutional law which superseded the Arusha Agreement and allowed President Nkurunziza to run in a second popular election (the first five years were by Parliamentarian appointment and not part of the two term limit.) President Nkurunziza and the People stood strong against the violent Rwanda based coupsters, who were supported by Western media manipulating public opinion.

Nzeyimana is very clear that people need to know that Burundi has 129 municipalities and that only 4 or 5 of the municipalities had any kind of militant and/or violent protests. The foreign media created an illusion that the attempted coup against President Nkurunziza was widespread.
Lesson to learn: Differentiate between violent opposition and political opposition, such as a Parliamentarian whom the terrorists tried to infiltrate, but who remained with the new Parliament and obeyed the law and Constitution of his country.

Interview ends with discussion of British, French and US trying to place an embargo on leadership of Burundi. Their request to the UN was turned down, as Russia, China and African states (esp. Tanzania, Angola, South Africa) fought for Burundi's sovereignty.
