Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza has made his first foreign trip since a failed coup attempt more than two years ago.

He has travelled with a number of senior ministers to Tanzania on Thursday.

He was received by President John Pombe Magufuli in Ngara, a small town in Ngara District, Kagera Region, in Tanzania, East Africa.

Ngara town is small with an estimated population of 8,000 to 10,000 people.

Nkurunziza and Magufuli’s discussion will cover, among other issues, the peace process and political situation in the smallest East African nation.

Tanzania is home to about a quarter of a-million Burundian refugees.

They fled during the crisis sparked by Nkurunziza’s decision to run for a third term in office.

He was attending a summit in Tanzania when the coup attempt was made in May 2015.

Hundreds of people have been killed since the crisis began, mainly alleged opposition supporters.
