Ms Mossi was the current chair of the East African Legislative Assembly Burundi chapter and had played a critical role in Burundi’s integration to the EAC.
She was the first Burundi East African Community minister and had been conducting sensitisation workshops with the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Burundi chapter with different stakeholders at the grassroot level on the benefits of the East African Integration to Burundi.
The killing follows a series of targeted killings of top government officers by unknown armed groups.
