Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza, aged 55, has died after suffering a cardiac arrest, the government says.
He was admitted to hospital on Saturday after feeling unwell, his condition improved but on Monday, efforts to revive him were unsuccessful, officials say. He died under unclear cause with some claiming it is cardiac arrest and others claiming coronavirus. The actual cause is still confusing.
After 15 years in power, Mr Nkurunziza was due to step down in August.
In 2015, the announcement that he would run for a third term plunged the country into chaos.
