Transitional Programme of Post Conflict Reconstruction
NAIROBI Reuters – Burundi began an official period of mourning for President Pierre Nkurunziza on Wednesday, a day after the announcement of his death from a heart attack aged 55 shocked the impoverished East African nation he had ruled with an iron grip. Wearing face masks and gloves to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, senior government officials, foreign ambassadors and religious leaders lined up to sign a condolence book opened in his memory at the presidential palace. Air ambulance service AMREF told Reuters they had flown her to Nairobi on May 21 for medical treatment, but declined to confirm widespread reports in Kenyan media that this was for treatment for COVID, the lung disease caused by the new coronavirus.
It remains unclear whether the powerful cabal of army generals and security chiefs who propped up Nkurunziza during his year rule remain united over the succession. Nkurunziza had been due to stand down in August, making way for retired general Evariste Ndayishimiye, who won an election last month that the opposition said was marred by violence and rigging.
The constitutional court last week rejected the rigging charges.

Please contact customerservices lexology. The energy sector in Burundi is today very circumscribed. It is mainly made up of the national utility “Regideso”, who benefits from a legal monopoly for electricity transmission, distribution and supply, renewed in for 25 years. The generation capacities are owned and operated by Regideso, are mainly hydro-electric and are very old and subject to chronic sub-investments, as is the case for the transmission and distribution assets too.
Most of the electrical equipment date from before the Independence in , and any additional generation capacity may harm and cause outages due to the said obsolescence of the grid. Additionally, the country is frequently struggling – due to currency issues – to import oil in sufficient quantities for gas-fired plants and personal generators, as has been regularly observed for the last decade. It has a huge demand for small and medium scale energy projects which may match in particular with their agricultural needs mechanization and food-conservation , the global welfare of the local population schools and hospitals and the potential mineral extraction in the region.
Putting aside the political crisis triggered in , and considering the current difficulties of the country for importing energy resources and the needs in terms of agriculture, welfare and peace, the country would be ideally placed for developing numerous renewable energy projects. These projects should be implemented both at i a regional level, with multinational hydro-electric projects mutually benefiting to the countries of the Great Lakes region and with the progressive integration of Burundi in the Eastern African Community and at ii a national level, with small and medium-sized renewable energy projects feeding stammering industries, cities and townships.
