Burundi’s most prominent activist, viagra order http://dcointl.com/wp-includes/pluggable-deprecated.php Claver Mbonimpa, sick http://decarbon.uk.com/wp-admin/maint/repair.php 67, viagra order has been airlifted to Belgium for specialized medical care, Chimp Corps report.

The president of the Association for the Protection of Human Rights and Detained Persons (Association pour la protection des droits humains et des personnes détenues, APRODH), sustained wounds in a gun attack last week.

Police said they are investigating the circumstances under which Mbonimpa was shot.

Mbonimpa was on Sunday moved from a hospital in Bujumbura, where was admitted on August 3, before his transfer to Belgium.

The activist was shot while being driven back to his residence after a meeting with an African Union diplomat in the north of Bujumbura.

The shocking incident came high on the heels of the murder of former intelligence chief and powerful military general, Adolphe Nshimirimana.

Mbonimpa looked frail as medical staff used a wheel chair to help him board the Belgium-bound plane.

The U.S. marines and Belgium military personnel last week deployed heavily around the hospital to protect the activist from further harm by violent gunmen.

Mbonimpa’s shooting drew condemnation from the international community with US Special Envoy for the Great Lakes, Tom Perriello describing the incident as horrifying.

Burundi slipped into political turmoil early this year after President Pierre Nkurunziza sought a third term in office – which African Union said did not uphold the spirit of the Arusha Accords.
