Burundi Opposition Reacts to President's New Title

The leader of the opposition Rally of Burundi Democrats, Jeremie Minani, says Pierre Nkurunziza being named "Eternal Supreme Guide" by his political party a few months ahead of a national referendum that could allow him to rule until 2034, is part of a plan to eliminate any challenge.

President Pierre Nkurunziza celebrated the 53rd anniversary of the independence of Burundi at Prince Louis Rwagasore stadium.
