Three Women Journalists from Burundi: in Exile and in Danger

Rossalyn Warren Public Radio International (PRI)
Since April 2015 Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza has waged a war on independent media, accusing journalists of “fighting the government” and creating “fake news,” and declaring them enemies and betrayers of the Burundian people. Journalists have been detained and killed, newspaper offices and radio stations set on fire. Forced to "run or die," three women journalists have courageously found a way to continue reporting on developments in their homeland from exile.
