The US based Kagame lobbyists, including the US Ambassador to the UN – Samantha Power – are responsible for the crisis we see in Burundi. It’s these lobbyists that make the US State Department make ridiculous and scornful statements.
The US State Department does not blame Kagame’s so-called Burundian rebels, who in their own words claimed responsibility for the grenade attacks that have claimed life and property in Burundi.

U.S. Condemns Violence in Burundi: The United States is deeply concerned by reports that fighting has broken out in several areas of Burundi and by recently broadcast remarks by Burundians threatening to use force against the Government of Burundi. We urge all parties in Burundi to commit themselves to constructive dialogue to resolv…
