“THE NEXT CIVIL WAR IN BURUNDI WILL ABSOLUTELY BE OVER LAND.”—a communications consultant in Bujumbura, the capital, who works for UN agencies and asked not to be named for security reasons
Martina Bacigalupo/Agence VU’
Pierre Gahungu, a small land owner in Burundi, earns a living working in a tailoring shop in a city near his farm. He was forced to flee his land by violence threatened and carried out by members of his cousin’s family who did not have enough land of their own to farm for their subsistence. This is a problem across Burundi, due to extremely high population density.
