Commuters use motorcycle taxis to make their way through early morning traffic in the Rwanda's capital KigaliBy Clement Uwiringiyimana KIGALI (Reuters) - Already boasting one of the cleanest urban centres in Africa, authorities in Rwanda's capital want thousands of street hawkers to form registered co-operatives or find formal work as they try to raise taxes and make the city even tidier, the mayor said. Kigali has a reputation for order that is rare on a continent of sprawling and often chaotic conurbations, and lately officials have stepped up measures against hawkers on the street, which activists say can be draconian. "Kigali’s target is to be a clean city so these street vendors are an impediment to cleanliness," Mayor Monique Mukaruliza told a new conference on Tuesday to explain the plan.

A retired Burundian army colonel was shot dead in Bujumbura on Wednesday, police said, victim of escalating violence between President Pierre Nkurunziza's security forces and opponents who say his re-election for a third term in July was illegal. A new round of peace talks was launched in the Tanzanian city of Arusha at the weekend, after previous discussions in Burundi and Uganda over the past year collapsed or stalled. Police said the former officer, named as Rufyiri Lucien, was shot as he sat in his car waiting for his gate to be opened in the Ngagara neighbourhood.
