Description

The Burundian government has served notice that it could withdraw its troops from the African Union force fighting militants in Somalia. The country says the main reason for a withdrawal is due to their troops not being paid. According to Emmanuel Ntahomvukiye- the Defence minister, The European Union has not paid the salaries of the Burundian troops for ten months. The decision of the EU to cut off its funding for the troops is tied to the ongoing political crisis in the country .Burundi is the second largest contributor to the African Union mission in Somalia. They have over 5 thousand troops in the country.
