The president of Burundi, Évariste Ndayishimiye is set to fire all married government officials who have concubines or are involved in extra-marital relationships.
The directive is alleged to have been masterminded by Minister for Internal Security, Gervais Ndirakobuca as a way to bring sanity into the country starting from the top.
Meanwhile, the move has sparked a debate on social media.
While some welcomed the move, a different section was not quite impressed as they opined that government should focus more on fighting corruption rather than extramarital affairs.

Ash vel stated;-
“Hahaha….when government has left nothing to do on,just have to interfer in people’s affairs”.
Mr X wrote;-
“It’s useless, they should use such energy to fight corruption not this nonsense. African states can do everything to oppress people but will never fight corruption and inequality in governments”.
“It’s their personal life. Nonetheless, if they see it fit, good for them”.
Kwabena Appiah also stated; This doesn’t make sense”.
“That’s moral value at a new level. Quite impressive from an African country”.
The mad king added;-
“African nations should embrace their traditional culture of polygamy. Westernization is helping no one”.
