Many politicians and officials have been assassinated since the violence rose in the country after Nkurunziza announced third term bid.
In July, a former government minister and MP in the East African parliament Hafsa Moshi was shot dead in the Burundi capital, Bujumbura by unknown gunmen; what President Pierre Nkurunziza called an assassination, a vile and cowardly act.
