Academic Workshop Opening Speech By the University President

Excellence Monsieur le Gouverneur de la Province Cibitoke
Distingués invités
Mesdames et Messieurs

Je suis honoré aujourd’hui d’être parmi vous et c’est un réel plaisir pour moi en mon nom personnel et au nom de toute l’équipe de l’Université Etoile d’Afrique de l’Est de vous accueillir dans ses assises du 27 décembre 2012.

Je suis honoré d’être ici parmi vous, durant cette journée historique, pour lancer ce qui sera marqué dans l’histoire comme une institution qui aura contribué à la transformation du monde académique Est Africain en général et le monde académique burundais en particulier.


Je suis ici aujourd’hui à cause de l’importance de notre pays le Burundi. Nous sommes un pays charnière entre l’Afrique de l’Est et l’Afrique Centrale. Nous partageons nos frontières avec deux pays aux ressources minières inégalées.


East Africa Star University Project: Building Peace, Prosperity, and Hope

For nearly two decades, the African Great Lakes Region, including but not limited to Burundi, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), has gone through difficult and challenging times of war, violence, lawlessness, and hopelessness.

From the 1994 Rwandan genocide which claimed the lives of President Juvenal Habyalimana of Rwanda, President Cyprien Ntaryamira of Burundi and about one million innocent people in just 100 days to the Congolese wars which have taken nearly five million lives since 1996 through the Burundian civil war which lasted more than a decade and took hundreds of thousands of lives, this region has greatly suffered.

 Political institutions have been shaken and destabilized, poverty has increased significantly with many people living with less than one dollar per day, moral and human values have deteriorated for many years, access to reliable health care services has become a dream for many communities, quality of and access to education are just events of the past for many. In brief, hopelessness has replaced hope and confidence.
