VICE News correspondent Danny Gold joins On The Line to discuss the Burundi's controversial presidential election.

In April, Burundi's incumbent president, Pierre Nkurunziza, announced plans to run for a third term in office — a move many claimed was unconstitutional. The political maneuver sparked violent clashes between Nkurunziza's supporters and those opposed to his third term, triggering a wave of government-sponsored repression and intimidation. Danny Gold traveled to Burundi for VICE News where he spoke to citizens on both sides of the political divide for "Burundi on the Brink."
