Dear Ban Ki-moon, I would like to first commend your personal commitment and that of the United Nations, to resolving the political situation in Burundi.

Emotions have never been my thing not that I don’t feel them but most times I don’t know how to show them so I thought! I was raised by a military man who has a strange way of showing his love and other emotions that we expect from our parents. I don’t remember him ever […]
