Ethiopian ADD - BJM - KGL

Hi everyone - Looking at a routing with one of the quirky Africa stops in Bujumbura BJM. Ethiopian stops for 50 mins then onward to Kigali KGL. Anyone been through BJM? Understand some unrest in the country. Any issues transiting? I would assume (like previous KLM flights in Africa) that we would NOT deplane? Anyone corroborate?

Yes countless times, the last trip occured in December 2019 tho!
Here a trip report from a June 2019 experience:

A 5-day Burundi Peregrination & Air Tanzania Business Class to South Africa

Any way, yes you will not deplane the aircraft. Even if you want, crew and ground staff will check your BP before getting off.
And no, as of today (and at least since early 2016) there is no unrest in Burundi .
