Jean de Dieu Kabura who lived in sprawling Kawangware area was found unconscious on New Year along a road in Nairobi.

It is not clear who attacked him, said Dagoretti Division head of CID, Joseph Ondoro, on Monday.
Ondoro said after Dieu was found at the scene by pedestrians he was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Ondoro said they didn’t not know if Dieu belonged to any political parties engaged in power games in Burundi.

Activists in Burundi have been posting information online claiming the man was killed over ongoing unrest in his country. They claimed Dieu was a member of MSD, an opposition party fighting President Pierre Nkurunziza’s third term in office.

Meanwhile, a Burundi national who fled Burundi and is currently in Nairobi, claims he has received death threats.

Ferdinand Manirerekana is said to have been vocal against President Nkurunziza’s third term which allegedly led to his fleeing Burundi.

The death comes amid reports Kenyan forces in the African Union(AU)’s Standby Force could be sent to protect civilians in unrest-hit Burundi if the UN Security Council endorses AU’s decision to send 5,000 troops to Burundi.

President Nkurunziza has declared the Burundian troops would fight AU forces if they are sent to the country.

It is said that at least 400 people have been killed, nearly 3,500 arrested and 200,000 people have fled Burundi since April last year when Nkurunziza announced he would run for a third term, which he later won. Enditem
