Bujumbura - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there problems with ethnic, race/racial minorities or religious prejudices? Gender equality?

White people are the minority and there seems to be no issues from my perspective. I do not see or experience gender or racial bias from the locals. - Mar 2021

Yes. Google this one. - Nov 2017

Ethnic tensions flare every now and again between Hutus and Tutsis. - Aug 2015

Not against expats. Within Burundian society, there are serious gender prejudices (against women). - Aug 2009

Not really. There’s the Burundian ethnic conflict, but expats are fine. In general Burundians are friendly and nonjudgemental. - Oct 2008
