Imagine Burundi on 99.4 FM CCIB in Bujumbura, Burundi.

  • Next Broadcast

    As our big announcement stated, Imagine Burundi ended its new broadcasts in July 2013. But keep checking back in our Archive - we will be posting new clips of our past episodes there.

    And don't forget to check out our colleague's new project, The Burundian Way, a weekly radio program at the same hour on the same channel - 3 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday on 99.4 FM CCIB.


Our First Web Clips!

Imagine Burundi is an hour-long broadcast but for the purposes of online archiving, we’ve distilled each of the three segments and left out some of the intro, music and/or transitions to keep file sizes small.

Here then is our very first attempt, which will also serve as a test so please let us know if the links are functioning or not. And of course, we hope you enjoy the show and we would happily welcome your feedback.

Once we are sure the audio files and links are functioning as they should, we will begin archiving our earliest efforts. We are now up to our 35th episode, so we decided to use a recent episode for the test run:

Episode 32 “Leaving Burundi: Ciza’s Story”

As mentioned in a previous post, our good friend and co-host, Ciza Idriss, has left Imagine Burundi (in fact, he left Burundi altogether) to pursue his dream of studying abroad. This is the story of that opportunity. (37 minutes)

There is no Job Advice in this episode to accommodate the special segment on Ciza’s departure.

Restaurant Review – Trattoria, an Italian restaurant that believes in tradition – and lets you know about it. At about the same time Ciza was leaving, another co-host, Seth Chase, was preparing for his trip to the U.S. Guest Diner Jonathan O’Connor and I send him off in style. (22 minutes)

Originally aired on August 27, 2011.


1. Episode 32 “Leaving Burundi: Ciza’s Story”

2. Restaurant Review: Trattoria

(Right click on the link above and select “Save As…” The files are in mp3 format.)

Note: Our email is still down. Hopefully, we will resolve that issue in the next week.
