There is now total lights out on the African continent as the lone surviving Primus Burundi league has equally been halted due to the coronavirus
Burundi’s President Nkurunziza Pierre gave the League his full blessings for games to go on even as Covid-19 cases were detected in the country. But, like many predicted, the league has come to an abrupt end courtesy of a communiqué from the president Ndikuriyo Reverien of the Burundi F.A.
On the 12th of April 2020 the executive committee of the Burundi F.A. analysed the state of the local and continental competitions, alongside womens and youth football leagues, if the competitions could pull through.
The executive committee after putting on the same thinking cap came to the conclusion that they are satisfied with the matches remaining, as the giving dateline at the start was 30 May, and everything would most likely be finished by then.
Due to the abovementioned fact, the dates would be reshuffled. A commission will therefore be formed to put in place all modalities set aside by the Ministry of public health in the fight against H.I.V. and the Coronavirus in the period of reshuffling.
As Burundi joins the football lockdown on the continent, only Belarus, Tajikistan and Nicaragua still play ‘the beautiful game’ around the world.
