Rawlings Requests Mugabe's Immediate Intervention In Burundi Killings

The ongoing killings in Burundi has caught the attention of former president, Jerry John Rawlings as he is documented to have written to the Chairman of the African Union and president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe requesting for his immediate intervention.

In a diplomatic letter to Robert Mubage which got intercepted the Daily Graphic, Mr Rawlings requested for an urgent deployment of African Union troops to Burundi in order to prevent, contain and possibly arrest those who are committing extra-judicial killings in that country.

In the view of Mr Rawlings, the Heads of State of the East African Community who intervened in the failed coup in Burundi last May could have anticipated the kind of vindictive reaction that would, no doubt, reignite and exacerbate the cold-blooded killings of Burundi’s past.”
