Kamwe Kamwe - Inside Burundi’s Killing Machine: full documentary - BBC Africa Eye

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Former Burundian intelligence agents say that the country’s security services are running secret torture and detention sites to silence dissent. Using cutting edge reconstruction techniques BBC Africa Eye examines one house in particular, which was filmed in a video posted on social media in 2016. A red liquid, which looked like blood, was seen pouring from its gutter. We ask if Burundi’s repression of opponents has now gone underground? The government has always denied any human rights violations, and declined to comment for this report.

A BBC Africa Eye investigation - produced and directed by Charlotte Attwood and Maud Jullien.

When do we stop all these? Oh Africa my Africa and our Africa who have we wrong? who has done this to us? Vladimir Putin is right "When an African becomes rich, his bank accounts are in Switzerland. He travels to France for medical treatment. He invests in Germany. He buys from Dubai, He consumes Chinese. He prays in Rome, Israel, Mecca and Medina. His children study in Europe. He travels to USA, Canada and Europe for tourism. If he dies, he will be buried in his native country of Africa. Africa is just a cemetery for African. How can a cemetery be developed?" and Donald Trump "Africa is a shithole"

I am Kenyan and surprisingly, Kamwe Kamwe also means one by one in my native Kikuyu language. So sad that this government is killing the very people it is supposed to protect.

All the pan Africans are not saying anything, until the International Criminal Court decides to act on behalf of the victims, then we'll see them shouting colonialism. Meanwhile, there's nothing wrong with Nkurunziza killing his own citizens

African leaders are the clear definition of “ignorance” they always ignore history and the real power of the people and consequently fall the same way! Barbarism, autocracy & injustice have no space in democracy

This is the main reason why countries should never be policed by their military. Military is supposed to protect the people from foreign hostilities and are not trained nor effective on police procedure. So when a political leaders use the military on the people, that is a solid indication that their only intention is to intimidate and abuse and to secure power over people that are not willing to support that leader. There are no examples in history where this is untrue. No exceptions.
