This is almost on the heels of a similar action of former President Nkurunziza who passed a law requiring couples within the country to get married by December 2017 or face legal consequences.
According to him, there was a population explosion in the country caused by men dating many girls simultaneously and impregnating them.
“We want Burundians to understand that everyone is responsible for his life, we want order in this country,” then-Interior ministry spokesman Terence Ntahiraja told AFP news agency.
