Burundi Refugees

Political unrest and violence prompted more than 400,000 people to flee Burundi and relocate to nearby countries, primarily Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania. Despite appeals from Burundi and other central African countries to leave their camps and repatriate, Burundian political refugees say they wouldn’t feel safe going back home. VOA’s Edward Rwema recently visited Burundian refugee camp in Rwanda and Uganda, and joins Vincent Makori in studio.
