In Burundi legislative elections due on May 26 have been postponed by 10 days. This follows an unsuccessful bid to overthrow President Pierre Nkurunziza who is seeking a third term in office.
Giving in to pervasive political pressure, Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza has postponed elections to the first week of June. Over 100,000 Burundians remain displaced across the region.
