South African Minister of Defence, Charles Ngcakula who spoke during a media interview on Burundi Peace Process yesterday in Burundi said that a meeting was held in order to discuss certain political elements that have become difficult to deal with. The matters have risen out of demands that have been made.
Ngcakula said in his speech that “the matters arise out of the demands that have been made. It is political demands and the government are saying they are unable to respond to those demands because they impact on the letter head spirit of not only the constitution but also the agreements which were arrived at earlier and negotiations that were happening in Tanzania.”
Therefore because government is unable to resolve the political issues they will be taking them to the regional leadership for them to provide some direction.
