Many families are fleeing their houses in Burundi's capital over fears the President Pierre Nkurunziza's led government is bent to stamp out resistance to his third term bid.

The president had earlier issued a Saturday midnight deadline for all civilians to hand over weapons or face government wrath.

This had inflicted fear on the populace who feared a fresh escalation of bloodshed as bodies were found dumped in the streets on a nearly daily basis and with no fewer than 200 people dying in the latest turmoil and 200,000 others fleeing the country.

International communities including the head of the UN, the US and the Hague-based International Criminal Court, had raised alarm against the government policies which could result to mass violence.

IVORY COAST OUATTARA RE - ELECTED AS PRESIDENT

President Alassane Ouattara has won his second five-year term with a total percent vote of 83.66. The Presidential poll took place on Sunday. Ouattara who is 73-years-old gained almost 84% of ballots in the first round of polls on Sunday.

 

Despite calls for a boycott by some opposition candidates, more than half of the voters turned out. Ouattara has a record of having revived the country's war-scarred economy. Critics accused him of creeping authoritarianism. Ex-prime minister was Ouattara's major challenger who gained just 9.29% of ballots. The voting exercise won praises from observers as they said it was fair and peaceful. Ouattara has promised to reform the Constitution and submit the changes to a public referendum.
