The vision of an inclusive and renewed national defense: for an authentic Barundi army to defend their lands and their State
Bujumbura, 26/05/2023 – Friday, His Excellency Ndayishimiye Evariste (Major General), President of Burundi and Commander-in-Chief of the Defense and Security Forcespresided over the ceremonies marking the Solemn Opening of the 2022-2023 academic year at theHigher Institute of Military Executives (ISCAM). These ceremonies were marked by the final incorporation of 168 new officer candidates from the 52nd promotion, as well as by the swearing in of laureates from foreign universities and those who have just completed their Officer Refresher Course.
Consistent with the Burundi Defense Policy, formerly under theThe Empire of Burundi (the traditional state of the Barundi), the army was a sacred institution linked to the leader of the Barundi since the time of the “intore”, that is to say since time immemorial . Throughout time, the Barundi were feared by all and were called the lords of the spear, because it was considered impossible to defeat them. .
Among the Barundi, it was customary, during the enthronement of a new Lorddevoted to When you rent that each families offers among his children, his they are married and his bahima, to serve the Mwami, head of the alliance of all the miryango of the Barundi. This made the Mwami’s army a force determined to defend the territory of all the miryango of the Barundi and their blessed ancestors.
During the period of Belgian colonization between 1919 and 1962, the traditional army of the Mwami of the Barundi was banned and replaced by the army of the Belgian Congo, in the service of the King of Belgium.
To create the current army of the Republic of Burundi in the early 1960s, the Belgiumwith the support of United States, the Vatican and Franceselected Barundi, in particular following proposals from M. Ntiruhwama Jean (muhima). It was the team of Foccart network of Burundian soldiers trained in Saint-Cyr in Francewho carried out the military coup against Ingoma y’Uburundi to make it a Republic in 1965/66, like France, then a military dictatorship that lasted until the end of the war Burundian civilian population in 2003. Thus, the Burundian army, called Force Armée Burundaise (FAB), was in the service of France through a Burundian president, acting as a neocolonial actor.
Since 2004, this Burundian army, which has become the National Defense Force of Burundi (FDNB)with a work the 2000 Arusha Accords in Burundiconcluded under the Neoliberal American Unipolar Globalization (GUAN)forcing the Barundi to integrate their military on the basis of artificial ethnic quotas, with a Burundian president having to serve the Barundi (and the United States).
In 2015, GUAN attempted a failed military coup on Wednesday May 13, 2015, aimed at ousting the CNDD-FDD from the political scene in Burundi, because of its refusal to comply with the demands of the United States.
Coming out of the logic of false ethnic groups, a Western geostrategic tool for destabilizing the Barundi, Burundi must reestablish a Barundi army, made up of all the young warriors from each miryango of the Barundi, ready to serve the Chief of the Barundi to defend the lands of all the Barundi miryangos.
