As the @NGSuperEagles take on #Burundi today, people like @chaplinez70 have been asking me what is the #AFCON2019 budget for the team? I was curious too. Well, after speaking to @thenff’s @ShehuDikko this morning, I now have some answers to give you & @Nigeria...
If the @NGSuperEagles get to the final of #AFCON2019, total @AsoRock expenditure on the team will be about $8.5m.
Here are what the @NGSuperEagles players will get as match bonuses: Group stage wins: $10k; Round of 16: $12.5k; QF: $15k; SF: $17.5k. And if they win the final: $20k. So, each player would earn $95,000 for winning #AFCON2019.

FLASH 🔴 Disparition d'un groupe de tambourinaires venus du #Burundi en #Suisse: le @BurundiGov "tient l'Ambassade de #Belgique à #Bujumbura pour seule responsable des conséquences de l'octroi des facilités à des personnes qui veulent ternir l'image du Burundi"
Le @BurundiGov s’étonne "de la facilité avec laquelle l'Ambassade de #Belgique au #Burundi a délivré les visas à des gens sensés allés représenter le Burundi sans qu'ils n'aient présenté de document officiel" alors que l'@BelgiumInBuja est minutieuse "quand il s'agit d'officiels"
COMMUNIQUÉ 🔴 Rappelant que "la #Belgique délivre les visas au #Burundi pour les courts séjours au nom des membres de la zone #Schengen", les ambassades de l'#UE "nient toute volonté de nuire à l’image du Burundi" dans l'affaire des tambourinaires burundais disparus en #Suisse

Conspiracy against #Burundi's image?

@BurundiGov denounces an uncanny chain of events and the likely involvement of #Belgium embassy authorities in a case of "disappearance" of Burundian drummers, recently reported by Swiss newspaper "La Liberté".
1/n
presidence.gov.bi/wp-content/upl…
2/n
Key elements :
- A group of drummers were granted the *NORMALLY HIGHLY SCRUTINIZED* Schengen visa through the #Belgium embassy
- for the purpose of representing #Burundi at a cultural event in #Swiss
- WITHOUT any supporting documents from #Burundi-an authorities
3/n
@BurundiGov denounces steps seemingly taken to circumvent local authorities involvement in an event representing #Burundi's image on the international stage, with the complicity of #Belgium embassy personnel.

En 1955, le #Burundi avait réellement tout pour réussir son entrée dans le concert des nations indépendantes : une monarchie multiseculaire, une élite éduquée et récalcitrante aux tentations divisionnistes. 10 ans après, ce rêve disparaissait.

1955-1965, la décennie "Test"
L'histoire contemporaine du #Burundi débute, le 24 avril 1955, lors de la célèbre conférence de Bandoeng où est lancée officiellement le mouvement de décolonisation. Sont présents pour le compte du #Burundi, les Princes Rwagasore, Muhirwa et Biroli.
À cette époque, sévit en Afrique, une lutte de pouvoir entre les partis dits autonomistes/"collaborationnistes" et les partis indépendantistes/"nationalistes" qualifiés de dangereux par le colon et d'"alliés du communisme satanique et international" par le clergé étranger.

C’est avec amertume que je prends cette plume trempée dans mon sang versé innocemment le 13/10/61 pr écrire à mes frères 🇧🇮s victimes jusqu’à l’heure actuelle de la haine alimenté pr le virus colonial, mais qui se dressent tjrs avec héroïsme pr défendre mon héritage.
@RFI
Chers frères burundais, ne me trahissez pas. Qui de vous ne connaît pas qu’avant la colonisation les Burundais étaient un seul peuple on ne peut plus uni, obéissant à un seul roi et un seul Imana?

FLASH 🔴 Pour l'ambassadeur du #Kenya au #Burundi, Kenneth N. Vitisia, "avec le #Referendum2018, les Burundais ont exprimé leur volonté de se choisir leur destin. Chacun a eu l'opportunité de dire exactement ce qu'il en pensait, ce qui était une très bonne chose"
Amb. Kenneth N. Vitisia (@KenyaEmbBurundi): "Avec ce #Referendum2018, je suis également heureux d'avoir constaté que la campagne électorale a été plutôt animée, que Rwasa a fait campagne pour le Non, ce qui est une indication que le #Burundi a progressé en termes de démocratie"
🔴 Kenneth N. Vistisia, Ambassadeur de #Kenya à #Burundi: "Même après le #Referendum2018, ceux qui pourraient avoir des griefs peuvent venir les présenter dans le dialogue inter-burundais mené par l'#EAC sous @WMkapa. Je crois que le besoin de violence a disparu depuis longtemps"

No surprise,
Posing at, attending #Burundi radicals opposition meetings, @RFI's @rutwesdras confirms (again) relentless anti-ruling party bias that has been noticed throughout @RFI's coverage of #Burundi

Dear @rutwesdras @AFP @AFPAfrica, @RFIAfrique @RFI and others,
will you update your article on #Burundi refugees who recently came from #Rwanda with comments of said refugees ?
or are you planning a full article on this matter ?
Video testimonies of refugees COMING BACK to #Burundi were completely ignored by the same medium
🤔but today, -written- refugees testimonies suddenly matter again to @RFI @AFPAfrica @rutwesdras

: "while the Nkurunziza government has accused regional actors (aka #Rwanda) of meddling to fuel conflict in the country, these allegations have remained largely false."

It is now (very) safe to ignore @issafrica from credible knowledge sources on #Burundi
Let's recall this:
#Burundi has showed 35 pieces of evidence to the @_icglr accusing #Rwanda of fueling #BurundiCrisis,
The @_icglr is the same organ which investigated on #Rwanda's accusations against #Burundi, of hosting Interhamwe (No proof found)
However, #Rwanda conveniently refused to allow @_icglr to investigate #Burundi's claims (which, again, are already backed by 35 pieces of evidences.)
Apparently, this is enough for @priyal_singh & @issafrica to conclude that the claims are false.
