Burundi: Isn't it time we rewarded this country for its remarkable peace process...?
Features collected by TFF • November 7 to December 31, 2005

When someone wants to start a war, there are always arms dealers standing ready. Seemingly unlimited resources are made available.
When people decide to put war behind them, media pays no attention and wealthy governments ignore them unless, that is, it is a "strategically important country.
Burundi is another name for one of the world's most impressive and promising peace processes. A good story. But it doesn't receive a fraction of the small humanitarian aid it needs; more and more Burundian are starving - as can be seen from some of the news articles below.

TFF is one of the few organisations that follow and support the peace process in Burundi - through 12 fine civil society organisations in the country. You can read much more here, at our Burundi Forum.

On the surface, it does seem strange. Why has South Africa sent both politicians and platoons of peace-keeping soldiers to a distant African country that it appears to have no connection with at all? What have they been doing there? How long will they stay? In short, why should South Africa be bothered about Burundi?
