The government was overthrown several times until 1987 when
Maj. Pierre Buyoya came to power & planned to seek
ethnic reconciliation between Hutu &
Tutsi. However, in the
next election Buyoya was overthrown by Melchoir Ndadaye
of the Hutu.
The ethnic violence returned & the Tutsi
military took control over the government &
Ndadaye. The military continued on killing more than 100,000
civilians, as well
as the next president, also a Hutu. The
violence continues today.
