Burundi

Burundi or Burundi, officially the Republic of Burundi, is a small sovereign nation located in the region of the great lakes of Africa in East Africa that has no outlet to the sea. It borders to the north with Rwanda, Tanzania to the south and east and with the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. It has an estimated population of approximately 10.5 million inhabitants and its territory extends over an area of ​​27 830 km 2. Its capital is the recently established Gitega and in turn, the most populated city is Bujumbura, with 1,030,000 inhabitants. Other important cities are Gitega and Ngozi. Although it is a landlocked country, part of the western border borders Lake Tanganyika.

The Twa, Tutsi and Hutu peoples have occupied the country since its formation five centuries ago. Burundi was ruled as a kingdom by the Tutsi people for more than two hundred years. However, at the beginning of the 20th century, Germany and Belgium occupied the region, and Burundi and Rwanda became a European colony known as Rwanda-Urundi. The old name of the country was Urundi-Ubrundi-Bruwanda. Urundi is the abbreviation of "Urundi Rwanda", as the Belgian colonial forces used to refer to the territory. The current name of the country comes from the Bantu Kirundi language. The political instability that occurred in the region due to differences between the Tutsi and the Hutu, provoked two civil wars and genocides in the year 1970 and again in the 90s.

Currently, Burundi is governed as a democratic presidential representative republic.62% of the population is Catholic, 8% is Muslim and the remaining percentage is animist or belongs to other Christian religions. Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world and has the second lowest GDP per capita according to the World Bank, after the Central African Republic, Burundi's GDP is low due to civil wars, corruption, poor access to education and health services, weak infrastructure and the effects of HIV / AIDS. Burundi is densely overpopulated, with substantial emigration. Cobalt and copper are its main natural resources, and some of the main exports are sugar and coffee. Today, Burundi remains an overwhelmingly rural society, with only 13% of the population living in urban areas according to 2013 data and the occupation of rural populations has led to massive deforestation, soil erosion and habitat loss.
