The coup in Burundi has failed

The coup in Burundi has failed.

The last three weeks have not been good for democracy or the economy in the country.  Information on the economy is likely to become more difficult to get.  Many news outlets have been destroyed or damaged, and probably will be reluctant to be critical of the government in the future.  In respect of government activity, information from the press in Burundi was often freer and more useful than in Rwanda, where journalists generally praise the government.
