It has come to the notice of the Embassy of the Republic of Kenya in Burundi that a number of Kenyan business men are encountering problems while carrying out transactions with their Burundian counterparts. This mostly happens when either party renege on agreements reached on the modalities for the delivery of goods and services.
This is therefore to sound a warning to Kenyans venturing into Burundi for business to carry out the necessary due diligence before making financial commitments. It would also be advisable to enter into written contracts in the presence of legal counsel in order to have recourse in the case where litigation may eventually be required.
The Embassy is looking into a number of cases of this nature and the best advise in most instances is to seek legal assistance or refer to the East African Court of Justice.
It is also advisable to get in touch with the Embassy on the intention to do business in Burundi and the nature of the business to enable the Embassy to intervene where necessary. It is also of importance to adhere to the laws of the land and be of conduct that is above reproach in line with the sterling reputation that Kenya enjoys in the Republic of Burundi.
