Burundi President Evariste Ndayishimiye arrives Kenya on two-day visit

Burundi President Evariste Ndayishimiye has arrived in Kenya for a two-day visit.

This is Ndayishimiye’s sixth foreign visit in less than a year in power.

His predecessor, the late Pierre Nkurunziza, only left Burundi once during his last term in office when he went by road to neighbouring Tanzania.

Ndayishimiye’s visit to Kenya is an “opportunity to strengthen brotherhood relations between Burundians and Kenyans” his spokesperson said in a statement.

Since winning the presidency in June 2020, Ndayishimiye has been keen to revive diplomatic relations after Burundi isolated itself from May 2015 following a failed coup in the country.

Early this month, he visited Uganda, another member of the East African Community bloc.

The bloc is riddled with tensions between some member states and its current chairman, Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta, seems intent on solving some of the rows.

Ndayishimiye is accompanied by First Lady Angeline Ndayubaha in the trip and they are scheduled to attend Kenya’s Madaraka Day celebrations – the day Kenya attained internal self-rule – in the western town of Kisumu.
