Like a few others, I don’t support the complete and wholesale embargo on third term-ism (or fourth term-ism et cetera) in presidential tenure in Africa. But this should not come with violence. What if the machinery for peace in a country turns out to be the fuel for conflict? Wouldn’t it help if we no longer looked at African countries as traditional societies in conflict because of ethnicity?  In my article published by the Initiative for Policy Research and Analysis, I explain how Burundi exemplifies the difficulties associated with Constitutionality and the Dynamics of Political Conflicts in Africa.
