More than a week after a senior member of the FNL was arrested with illegally-procured UN uniforms in his possession, the UN has still issued no apology for a neutrality lapse which has caused outrage in Burundi. Instead they have lashed out at the local media for drawing the very natural conclusion that some level of collusion has gone on between ONUB and the FNL. It's time for the UN to stop digging and start apologising.
