The president of Burundi, Évariste Ndayishimiye is set to fire all married government officials who have concubines or are involved in extra-marital relationships.
The directive is alleged to have been masterminded by Minister for Internal Security, Gervais Ndirakobuca as a way to bring sanity into the country starting from the top.
Meanwhile, the move has sparked a debate on social media. While some welcomed the move, a different section was not quite impressed as they opined that government should focus more on fighting corruption rather than extramarital affairs.

Ash vel stated; “Hahaha….when government has left nothing to do on, just have to interfere in people’s affairs”.
Mr X wrote; “It’s useless, they should use such energy to fight corruption not this nonsense. African states can do everything to oppress people but will never fight corruption and inequality in governments”.
