Senior government officials last week organised protests in Bujumbura to express their displeasure with the AU force, prostate saying the country’s armed forces will restore peace and stability.

However, the fighting between government forces and rebels continues in different parts of the capital city.

Dr Zuma’s statement came high on the heels of the re-launch of Burundi peace talks in Kampala by president Museveni.

“The Chairperson of the Commission avails herself of this opportunity to reiterate the AU’s readiness to engage, without any delay, discussions with the Government of Burundi, to agree on the modalities for the deployment of the African Prevention and Protection Mission in Burundi (MAPROBU), as decided by the Peace and Security Council at its 565th meeting held on 17 December 2015,” the statement reads in part.

Dr Zuma said the rapid deployment of MAPROBU “will go a long way in contributing to the creation of conditions conducive to the successful completion of the inter-Burundian dialogue.”

She welcomed the fact that the members of the United Nations Security Council, in their press statement of 19 December 2015 on the situation in Burundi, “took note with interest of the decision to authorize the deployment of MAPROBU and urged all Burundian stakeholders to fully cooperate with the Mission in support of the effective implementation of its mandate.”

Dr Zuma further said the Peace and Security Council of the AU decided that all those whose action could jeopardize the inter-Burundian dialogue, including attacks by armed groups against governmental facilities and other targets, as well as refusal to respond to the invitation of the Mediator, shall be subjected to sanctions as provided for in the relevant decisions of Council and other measures to be agreed upon.

Hundreds have been killed in Burundi since President Pierre Nkurunziza chose to maintain his hold onto power after the expiry of his two mandatory terms.
