Another group of Burundian refugees arrived in Rwanda
The group were made up of 3 men, 7 women and 15 children. According to The New Times, there was no information from the authorities to clarify what impelled them to seek refuge in Rwanda. However, there has been a constant surge of Burundian asylum seekers in the East African country.
"Every month, we take groups of new arrivals to Mahama refugee camp after receiving them here in the transit camp. Last month we took about 60 of them," Simon Nkurayiza, the camp manager said. He added that it was unusual to receive such a large number in one day, in the recent past.
