At least six people have died in Burundi in a night of torrential rain and flooding that triggered landslides and caused widespread damage, the government said on Friday.

In the northwestern town of Mabayi, a landslide smothered several houses, and rescuers found five victims, while flooding in a suburb of the capital Bujumbura left another person dead.

Witnesses in Bujumbura said the storm occurred on Thursday evening, causing significant property damage and landslides.

“We elected the father of the nation, the president of the republic, the rock Nkurunziza so that he can help because we are unhappy. In April we were always being invaded by these waters and we call upon the president to help us and appease our hearts,”
said Desired Nzeyimana, a resident of Buterere.

The Carama, Buterere and Kinama districts of the capital were still flooded on Friday.

Dozens of people died across Burundi during the rainy season, which began in September and ended in February, according to vice-president Gaston Sindimwo.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.

Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.

“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”

It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”

The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
