  • With my guide we walked a bit before getting our pass (to be paid to the Member at the entrance) to this monument whose location offers a panoramic view of the city of Bujumbura. This monument symbolizes the reconciliation after decades of hostility. 05/02/1992 date corresponds to the date of the signing of the Pact for national unity.
