Burundi President accused stoking anti-LGBTIQ+ hate

Burundi’s President, Évariste Ndayishimiye, recently sparked controversy. He faced global criticism from Human Rights Watch, the US, and the EU. During a press event on December 29, he supported publicly executing LGBTIQ+ people. He was responding to questions about Western pressure on African countries for LGBTIQ+ rights. “These people in Burundi should be publicly stoned in stadiums. This is not a crime,” he said. His statement led to a wave of social media support and more calls for violence against the LGBTQ community. Human Rights Watch expressed concern about the growing hostility and danger for LGBTQ people in Burundi.
