an investigation and warrant are required against Mr James Kabarebe in Rwanda,Kacyiru Magistrate Court.
He had been placed on the list of Rwandan refugees in Uganda(refugee camps) by fraud and this must end up now.

Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants to South Africa - Burundi is Easy transit Point
Dear Sir, I would like to focus on some illegal activities which is against south African interest. Everyday 5-6 people comes from Bangladesh via Dubai/asia to Bujumbura airport and then they go to South Africa by road Via Tanzania , as Burundi provide visa on arrival for Bangladeshi, I really do not know where to complaint.
