In the second of a series of three videos looking at the struggles faced by Burundian journalists still working in the country, IBTimes UK met Thomas Nzeyimana, journalist at Renaissance TV. Nzeyimana explained why he believes journalists need to protect the countrys private TV and radio stations.

If we leave this country, everything will be over, Nzeyimana said. If you only have national [government] means of information and news, people will be misled. They will never know what is happening on the other side.
