BUJUMBURA February 11th (ABP) – The Association of Burundians resident in Zambia – ABRZ) contributed, on Thursday, February 7, 2019, to the 2020 elections with a sum of 70 million Burundian francs. The sum was deposited at the Bank of the Republic of Burundi (BRB) by a delegation of the said association. Mr. Francis Xavier Tuyiramye, head of the delegation, said in an interview with the press that the Zambian diaspora responded to the appeal from the Burundi government inviting all Burundians worthy of the name and 18 years old in 2020, to contribute to the 2020 elections. He also pointed out that this sum, which has just been paid to the Central Bank, is a joint effort of the Burundians who live in Zambia and who believe that the good elections are those organized by the Burundians themselves without any outside intervention. This is why he urged other Diasporas to do the same for the good conduct of those elections in their country.
