Human rights abuse is still a standard act in Burundi. They include murder and sexual violence.
Citizens had hope in the newly elected president, Evariste Ndayishimiye. His predecessor Pierre Nkurunziza lead for 15 years, and this concern was never addressed to success.
According to the United Nations (UN), at least 1200 people were killed and over 400,000 displaced during the unrest that took place between April 2015 and May 2017 during his tenure.
All hope was in the new leader to change the situation in the Central African country.
During the election, it is reported that there was evidence of torture, summary executions, and sexual violence.
A commission of inquiry member Francoise Hampson said that in the recent week, there were continued killings, arbitrary detentions, and continued disappearance.
He continued and said that it was surprising that it is ongoing even though the election was over. I stress that the matter is of grave concern, and the action should be taken immediately.
The perpetrators target the young children under 19 years; the investigators looked at the severe violation committed on an under 18 years child.
Commissioner Lucy Asuagbor said that they fear the consequences of the 2015 crisis for the future of Buruindi because of the long-term effect it will have on the children.
The commission has been the only independent body to report on human rights violations in Burundi for the past four years.
There is a lot of concern about oversight. The panel is working to see this oversight disappear when it ends its mandate this year. They will present the report to the human rights council on 23 September 2020.
