Burundi lifts suspension of 25 foreign
non-governmental organizations

BUJUMBURA Burundi (Xinhua) -- Twenty-five foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Burundi have been authorized to resume operation after re-registration, over a month after a suspension, Burundian Interior Minister Pascal Barandagiye said Monday.

The Burundian National Security Council on Sept. 26 imposed a three-month suspension of foreign NGOs, requiring them to abide by the general framework of cooperation between the landlocked African country and foreign NGOs, a law promulgated by Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza in January 2017.

Barandagiye in October urged the suspended foreign NGOs to prepare necessary documents in order to resume their activities.

The re-registration process of foreign NGOs was moving smoothly, said Barandagiye at a press briefing in the Burundian capital of Bujumbura.

“We’re satisfied with the re-registration process because 25 foreign NGOs have re-registered and they have been authorized to resume operation,” he said.

According to him, 11 other foreign NGOs have filed their application for re-registration at the interior ministry, which are being analyzed.

Foreign NGOs operating in the health and education sectors are not concerned in the suspension.
