BUJUMBURA---With little fan-
fare or a public announcement
beforehand, Burundi President
Pierre Nkurunziza was sworn
in for a third term yesterday in
this central African country
which has been plagued by
Nkurunziza was sworn in at
Parliament in front of banners
bearing the green, white and red
colours of the national flag as
lawmakers and others looked on.
Soldiers in dress uniforms and in
camouflage stood nearby.
The event did not elicit cel-
ebrations on the streets of
Bujumbura, the capital. Nkurun-
ziza won elections last month
which the US and UK said lacked
credibility because of intimida-
tion of the opposition and a
clampdown on independent
Burundi has been in turmoil
since the April announcement
of Nkurunziza s candidacy that
many said violated the Consti-
tution and a peace accord.
Protests boiled over in May when
soldiers launched a coup. It was
quickly put down by the pres-
ident s loyalists.
The violence has left more than
100 people dead and created tens
of thousands of refugees.
In recent weeks, opposition
and government officials and
supporters have been targeted in
Earlier this month, a former
head of the intelligence services
and a key ally of the president,
Lt Gen Adolphe Nshimirimana,
was killed by unknown assailants
who shot rocket-propelled
grenades at his car in Bujumbura.
The next day, there was an assas-
sination attempt on Pierre Claver
Mbonimpa, a prominent rights
activist and government critic.
On Saturday, a former army
chief of staff during Burundi s
civil war, Col Jean Bikomagu, was
shot and killed outside his home

Burundi president unexpectedly sworn in
South Sudan---A South Sudanese
journalist was shot dead by unknown
gunmen in the outskirts of the coun-
try s capital, his father said yesterday,
in an attack that came days after Pres-
ident Salva Kiir was reported to have
threatened to kill reporters "working
against the country."
Peter Julius Moi, a reporter for Cor-
porate Weekly, was shot twice in the
back Wednesday night, Moi s father,
Julius Kilong Ramoi said.
The international journalists rights
group, the Committee to Project Jour-
nalists, quoted Kiir as threatening jour-
nalists on Sunday.
"If anybody among (journalists) does
not know that this country has killed
people, we will demonstrate it one day,
one time. ... Freedom of the press does
not mean you work against the country,"
Kiir was reported telling journalists.
Earlier this month, two newspapers
said the government stopped their oper-
ations in an apparent crackdown on
the independent media.
Moi was shot dead in the Jebel area
of the capital, Juba. Otieno Ogeda, chief
executive officer of Corporate Weekly,
said the media house had not received
threats over recent articles Moi wrote,
including two that focused on the scal-
ing back of operations of South Sudan s
only brewery. The body was found near
the brewery, but Moi also lived in the
Nothing was stolen from Moi during
the attack, Ogeda said.
"Everything was intact, even the
money in his pocket was never stolen,
even his phone was not taken away,"
Moi is the seventh journalist to be
killed in South Sudan this year.
In December 2013, troops loyal to
Kiir clashed with those loyal to former
Vice President Riek Machar. Machar
signed a peace deal on Monday to end
the continued fighting while Kiir has
promised to sign in coming days. (AP)
