You are cordially invited to attend an address by His Excellency, the President of Burundi, Domitien Ndayizeye. This past May 1st, in what was hailed by the international community as a significant step on the road to a Burundian peace, Domitien Ndayizeye, an ethnic Hutu, took over the presidency of Burundi’s Transitional Government from his Tutsi predecessor, Pierre Buyoya. President Ndayizeye will be arriving in the United States shortly after the conclusion of a regional summit that, while reportedly yielding some progress, did not succeed in producing a new power-sharing agreement between the government and the principal armed rebel group. President Ndayizeye will report on the outcome of this summit, and share his views of the current state of the Burundi peace process.
