Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza is making his first foreign trip since a failed coup attempt more than two years ago, reports the BBC’s Prime Ndikumagenge from Bujumbura.
He has travelled with a number of senior ministers to Tanzania, home to about a quarter of a-million Burundian refugees.
They fled during the crisis sparked by Mr Nkurunziza’s decision to run for a third term in office.
He was attending a summit in Tanzania when the coup attempt was made in May 2015.
Hundreds of people have been killed since the crisis began, mainly alleged opposition supporters.
