The deposed president of the African country of Burundi, Col. Jean-Baptiste Bagaza, left Nairobi for Paris early today after Kenya apparently refused him entry to the country, Nairobi airport sources said. Bagaza, 41, who lost power in a coup by military officers on Thursday, had been waiting in the VIP lounge at Nairobi airport for 12 hours after returning hurriedly from a summit of French-speaking nations in Quebec.

Uganda has offered temporary asylum to ousted Burundian President Jean-Baptiste Bagaza because his nation's new military junta will not allow him to return home, said a Ugandan Cabinet minister, who declined to be identified. "He was desperate. He had nowhere to go. He was refused permission to fly into Bujumbura (the Burundian capital)," the official said. Bagaza, 41, was overthrown Thursday while attending a meeting in Canada.
