One hundred and thirteen deputies who attended the plenary session unanimously passed Ndirakobuca’s candidature which was a unique one.
The candidature of Gervais Ndirakobuca was sent by Burundian President Evariste Ndayishimiye who later in the day signed a decree appointing Gervais Ndirakobuca as the Prime Minister.
Before this, Gervais Ndirakobuca was the minister for Interior, Community Development and Public Security since June 2020.
He replaces Alain Guillaume Bunyoni who was accused of undermining the activities of the government.
Bunyoni was Burundi’s Prime Minister since June 2020.
