Burundi has completely closed its border with Rwanda, which has prevented Burundian students studying in Rwanda from going back home.

The education ministry told local media that after schools were closed in Rwanda as part of measures to contain the COVID-19 virus or Coronavirus, Burundian students go stranded at border.

Government here has decided to house them at two schools: Collège Saint André and Lycée Notre Dame des Citeaux.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Burundian living in Rwanda have also been refused entry by their country’s border authorities. These are mainly businesspeople and regular travelers.

Rwanda confirmed its first case on Saturday March 14, and as of Monday there were 5 confirmed Coronavirus cases.

  3. Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never seem to get anything done.

  4. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that
    service? Appreciate it!

  5. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Many thanks!
