She was born in Mwumba, in the north of Burundi. Shy and hardworking, Denise Bucumi met a man, Pierre Nkurunziza. But in 1993, war broke out in this central African country formerly known as "the Switzerland of Africa", taking with it the dream of a peaceful household. When the family's father left for the bush, Denise found herself face to face with her worst enemy: loneliness. What a lot of fighting and many tears to reunite her again with her family for a more beautiful destiny: the Presidential Palace.
