Burundi's President Pierre Nkurunziza Named'Eternal Supreme Guide By Party

Burundi's ruling party declared President Pierre Nkurunziza an incomparable "all-time visionary", as the troubled East African country prepares for a referendum that may allow him to rule until 2034.

Burundi's ruling CNDD-FDD on Sunday announced Nkurunziza - who critics claim is trying to lock in power for life - would be known as "Imboneza yamaho", which the press translated as "eternal supreme guide", while some officials spoke of "permanent guide".

As if to prove these sentiments, Secretary-general Evariste Ndayishimiye said in a video sent to AFP, "He is our leader".

"After going over the huge works realised by his Excellency, the president of the Republic, the value of his ideas, his teachings, advice and acts, (the party) found him to be an excellent charismatic leader and chose to raise him to the status of Visionary of the CNDD-FDD", he said.

Quiche, yoga leggings, GoPro cameras added to ONS inflation basket
The exclusion of the pork pie is the result of rethinking the area of "cooked pastry-based savoury snacks", according to the ONS. The price movements of 700 goods and services are measured in 20,000 United Kingdom outlets to calculate inflation.

In response to this latest development, critics are saying that an nearly cult-like following is developing around 54-year-old Nkurunziza. He is already serving a controversial third term in office.

Landlocked Burundi has been roiled by violence that's left hundreds of people dead and forced more than 400,000 to flee their homes since April 2015 when Nkurunziza began seeking another term, which he subsequently won. The next presidential election is in 2020 and Nkurunziza's supporters argue that if the constitution is changed, he could run again under the new rules. "The whole party now has to do as he does", a high-ranking party member said on condition of anonymity.

In July a year ago, the International Federation for Human Rights slammed his "increasingly violent dictatorial regime".
