Outgoing President of Burundi Pierre Nkurunziza has succumbed to Coronavirus at a hospital in Karusi.

Pierre Nkurunziza, was a very sick man after he tested positive with  #Covid-19 –local media reported on Monday.

The outgoing first lady Denise Nkurunziza is also reportedly recovering at Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya. “She sent a recorded audio message saying she was responding very well to treatment,” a source said, adding she shared the message on WhatsApp.

Nkurunziza is on record for saying that there was no #Covid-19 in his country and vividly disregarded all measures announced by WHO aimed at stopping the spread of this pandemic.

After waiting since May 20 for the winner of the presidential elections, the constitutional court confirmed on Thursday, June 4, that Maj. Gen. Evariste Ndayishimiye was the new President of the Republic of Burundi.
