The African Union Mission in Burundi or AMIB was a military force of the African Union deployed to Burundi in 2003 during the Burundian Civil War.[1] The mission, consisting of 2,870 troops from South Africa, Mozambique and Ethiopia, remained in the country for one year, when it was replaced by the United Nations' United Nations Operation in Burundi (ONUB). The official transfer of authority from AMIB to ONUB took place on June 1, 2004. The South African component of the force remained and was formed into the African Union Special Task Force (AU STF).[1]
