"However, Burundian legislation still contains some outmoded laws and some matters have not been legislated. Nevertheless, reforms are under way. They have to do, in particular, with: 1) Inheritance, matrimonial regimes and gifts, which are still governed by customary law" (9). This indicates that there are currently no laws on inheritance rights of women (CODER COMMENT-BCT). "However, given the lack of a law on inheritance, marital property and gifts (SRML), women are restricted in their entitlement to legal remedy because the tendency is to resort to custom" (30). The lack of a law on inheritance implies that wives are not legally allowed to inherit from their husbands (CODER COMMENT-BCT).more
