The popular Burundi comedian aka, ”Kingingi” was arrested for poking fun at President last week. The comedian was arrested by Burundi National Intelligence Service aka,SNR on Tuesday last week and charged for insulting President Pierre Nkurunziza with his joke.
Kingingi was arrested while on a bear company promotional tour in a hotel in Muramuya. He is being held in Bujumbura (the SNR dungeon) where no relative is allowed access to him. A family member who spoke on condition of anonymity said, ”we fear the same fate that fell on the people taken to the dungeon may fall on the comedian, because people who were held there are always tortured and killed”
The President of Burundi is a man who hate being challenged. The famile hoped the comedian will be released.
