Minister sacked for ‘tarnishing’ Burundi’s image

Burundi’s President Évariste Ndayishimiye has dismissed Commerce Minister Capitoline Niyonizigiye.

She has been accused of “undermining government’s aspirations and orientations…and for tarnishing the image of Burundi”.

Iwacu news website tweeted a photo of the former minister:

Ms Niyonizigiye is the second minister of commerce to be sacked in less than a year.

Her predecessor, Immaculée Ndabaneze, was sacked in May after being accused of actions that could compromise the economy and also tarnishing Burundi’s image.
