Burundi talks to resume in Uganda as crisis deteriorates

Talks aimed at resolving the Burundi crisis are to resume in Uganda late this month, a mediator has said.

Crispus Kiyonga, who is also Uganda’s minister of defence told reporters that Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni will chair the talks on December 28 before they are moved to Arusha, Tanzania.
