has accused Tanzania of
being a state sponsor of
terrorism, by helping Hutu-
extremists in neighbouring
Burundi to destabilise the
country's newly-elected
government. As widely
predicted, Burundi's ruling
"Frodebu" party, which
has close links to
Tanzania, was heavily
defeated in this week's
elections. The former Hutu
rebel group CNDD-FDD,
now a multi-ethnic party,
won a convincing victory
with 58% of the vote.
Frodebu polled just 22%.
It was the first national
democratic vote since
1993, when a military coup
plunged Burundi into a
decade-long, ethnically-
charged civil war. During
the election campaign,
CNDD-FDD accused
Frodebu of stirring up
racial divisions, and of
employing members of the
Hutu-extremist FNL to kill
and intimidate voters. The
FNL rebels have remained
outside the Burundian
peace process, despite
the restoration of
democracy, and a series
of heavy defeats by the
Burundian army. On June
16th attackers believed to
be members of the FNL
massacred six
churchgoers in the
Muhuta district of Rural
Bujumbura. During earlier
local elections, the FNL
had attacked a polling
station, killing a United
Nations peacekeeper, and
killed several people in "hit
and run" attacks on the
Burundian capital
Bujumbura. Frodebu denied
involvement in the
violence, but have
recently admitted "political
collaboration" with the
FNL. reports
that the Tanzanian
government has offered
material support to the
FNL leader and helped
formalise the "unholy
alliance" between Frodebu
and the FNL:
"With the assistance of
the Tanzanians, [FNL
leader] Agathon Rwasa
has moved his HQ from
the hills around Bujumbura,
where he was already in
difficulty, to the
Tanzanian capital Dar Es
Salaam, where he can
enjoy the protection of
the Tanzanian secret
"Rwasa, who has nothing
more to lose, has
accepted that the
success of the elections
mean political death for
the FNL, and their position
as 'Hutu defenders' has
become obsolete."
"But if Rwasa's strategy
is merely his own survival,
Frodebu's calculation is far
more diabolical - they
intend to perpetuate
Burundi's bloody civil war
and state of insecurity, in
order to undermine the
new institutions."
