The people of Burundi continue to face challenges as the country prepares for the 2015 general elections.

That's what has come out of a three day meeting from 27 to 29 November in the African country.

The meeting, jointly organized by the United Nations Office in Burundi (BNUB) and the government of Burundi brought together all major political parties in the country.

The head of the BNUB Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, who is also the Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Burundi, tells UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha that participation in the meeting was huge.
