Situation Report: Burundi Update: A New Hat for AMIB? Henri Boshoff
1 March 2004

The cease-fire agreement signed in November 2003 between the transitional government of Burundi (TgoB) and the National Council for the Defence of Democracy-Forces for the Defence of Democracy (CNDD- FDD), was generally seen as marking a decisive turn in the peace process, creating the necessary conditions for a United Nations mission to take over the African Union`s Mission in Burundi (AMIB). This was certainly the view expressed by Mr Jacob Zuma, Deputy President of South Africa and Facilitator of the Burundi peace process during a briefing to the United Nations` Security Council on 4 December 2003.
