(KDRTV)- Eastern Africa community is mourning the demise of Burundi`s president Pierre Nkurunzinza, aged 55, who has died of cardiac arrest- reports the government 

Reports indicate that Nkurunzinza was admitted to hospital on Saturday after feeling unwell.

His condition later improved but on Monday, he had a cardiac arrest and efforts to rescue him were futile

KDRTV understands that the president was due to step out of power in August.

According our previous reports, the president`s veiled efforts to vie for presidency for the third round stormed the country into political divides marred with chaos

Until his death, Nkurunzinza served as a president for 15 years

Upon the review of Burundi constitution, the president was permitted to vie for another term but resolved to retire as a sign of patriotism
