The Government of Burundi is expected to repatriate seven Rwandans caught on the latter’s land recently with their livestock.

The handover of these Rwandans will take place today afternoon in Remera cell, Ruheru sector of Nyaruguru district.

The Governor of Southern Province, Alice Kayitesi will lead Rwanda’s delegation during the handover to be preceded by talks between both sides.

Speaking to IGIHE, Kayitesi has revealed that residents to be repatriated had crossed to Burundi illegally.

Rwandans to be deported today are said to have crossed to the neighboring country unwillingly over failure to identify landmarks separating both countries.

The repatriation follows Rwanda’s recent handover of 19 militants of RED Tabara rebel group opposed to the government of Burundi arrested in Nyungwe National Park in September last year.

Rwanda recently handed over nineteen militants hostile to Burundi's established government. They had been arrested in Nyungwe National Park in September last year.
