2012 Burundi celebrated 50 years of Independence. One man, an emblematic figure of the anti-colonial struggle is directly linked to this Independence: Prince Louis Rwagasore, son of King Mwambutsa IV Bangiricenge. In the short span of his political life, he manages to gather a crowd of militants in support of his vision: to cast of the colonial yoke.
In 1961, at the first free election, his party is victorious and he becomes Prime Minister. And then, after but a few days after the formation of his government, he is assassinated on October 13th 1961. On July 1st 1962 Burundi gets its Independence in the absence of the one who gave his life and soul to reach that grand day.
