The Movement for Patriotic Actions (MAP-BURUNDI BUHIRE) is a grassroot movement created as a result of a broad process of consultations during which Burundians residing in Burundi and those of the Diasporas decided to create a grassroot political movement for the refounding of the Nation and the Burundian State.
It was decided to establish the political movement in Burundi and in the countries where a good number of Burundian compatriots reside. In addition to this, you need to know more about it.
MAP is a new framework for political and civic expression, open to Burundian men and women of integrity, with a sense of patriotism, competent and ready to undertake major national projects to rebuild a Nation that is based on the rule of law, respect of life and dignity of every citizen.
MAP-Burundi Buhire is a unifying and inclusive political and citizenry movement without any exclusion, and whose mission is to redress the chaotic situation described above. Its main objectif is to work hard to build a modern, secular, dignified and prosperous and rule of law based Nation with an intention to improving the collective well-being of the Burundian population.
The Burundian diaspora living in UK is a vibrant and dynamic community. Life in UK has, without a doubt taught Burundians, who have lived most of their adult lives in the UK, valuable lessons that can be deployed to build a just and prosperous society in their country of origin.
The UK has a long and prestigious history of strong and daring innovations in the domains of the rule of law, human rights, international development, gender based equity and many more. This is a history that can inspire Burundians who live and work in the UK in the quest to overcome decades of political, social and economic volatility and build a strong, juste and prosperous society in their country of origin.
"Akanyoni katagurutse ntikamenya iyo bweze" is a Kirundi proverb that encapsulates the notion of being inspired by the best.
MAP-BURUNDI BUHIRE is a movement built on that notion. A collective strive to do the best for our brothers and sisters, with each and everyone's involvement.
MAP-BURUNDI BUHIRE - A credible and New way of doing politics
The vision of MAP - Burundi Buhire" is based on four main points:
Constitution and Internal Rules of Procedure
A grassroot and democratic movement at heart, MAP-Burundi Buhire is determined to work towards a rule of law based society. The movement's constitution and internal rules of procedure are the internal democratic tools that regulate our actions and membership.
Peace and security are the prerequisites for democracy and development. The return to peace begins with an effective reform of the defence and security corps to make them republican, professional, politically neutral bodies, respectful of human dignity and of the balances prescribed by the Arusha Accord for Peace and Reconciliation. The new Constitution promulgated on June 7, 2018 puts democracy and the Arusha Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation and its resulting Constitution in dire straits. MAP-BURUNDI BUHIRE will do all it can to fight for the full restauration of the Arusha Accords to all the country to heal before any other reforms can be undertaken.
