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.
