The small african nation of Burundi has been gripped by violence since April 2015 as when of Pierre Nkurunziza’s announcement of the intention to run for a third-term in office.

A decision that the opposition immediately claimed to be anti-constitutional and a breached of the 2006 Arusha Peace and Reconciliation Agreement that ended a disastrous civil war which lasted 13 years and left more than 300,000 people dead.

Despite the street violence, a wave of assassinations and grenade attacks, a failed coup d’etat and against the international community’s advise, the presidential elections went ahead in July and Nkurunziza won a third term as leader, raising widespread fears that the impoverish country in the heart of central Africa’s troubled Great Lakes region could be plunged back into civil war. With the nation’s fragile peace under threat as tensions between the strong police force loyal to the president and the opposition political groups simmer under the surface, more than 210,000 people have so far fled the post-election violence to find refuge in neighbouring countries.

Burundian university students, seeking shelter outside the US embassy in Bujumbura, build toilets and showers in the yard of a vacant building close by. The students moved to the area in early May because, they claim, the US authorities ensure their security, after their university was closed amid anti-government protests. The government closed the university at the end of April, citing “insecurity”.
