East Africa: Burundi to Sue Rwanda for 'Destabilizing' the Country

Burundi military

In an exclusive interview with DW, Burundi's foreign affairs minister, Alain Aime Nyamitwe, said his government plans to take Rwanda to court for backing the rebel insurgency in his country.

Burundi's ruling CNDD-FDD party has accused Rwandan President Paul Kagame of seeking to "export" genocide to their country as relations between the two neighbors deteriorate further.

The head of the CNDD-FDD party Pascal Nyabenda said in a statement that Kagame had previously "experimented" with genocide, referring to the 1994 Rwandan genocide in which around 800,000 people were killed, mostly ethnic Tutsis.
