Burundi’s general and former prime minister has been sentenced to life in jail by the country’s Supreme Court.

Alain-Guillaume Bunyoni was found guilty of multiple counts of crimes including attempting to kill Burundi’s president – Évariste Ndayishimiye – and undermining the national economy.

Four properties and 14 vehicles belonging to the general will be confiscated.

Two of his six co-defendants were sentenced to 15 years in jail, another three to three years, and one was acquitted.

Bunyoni’s trial took place a month ago after his arrest in April.

Six months earlier he was prime minister in the government of his former rebel comrade President Ndayishimiye.

During the trial, it was not clear when Bunyoni committed the crimes he was accused of after holding top government jobs for over 15 years since 2005 until he was sacked.
