Antoine Nduwayo (born on 1942) was the Prime Minister of Burundi from February 22, 1995 until July 31, 1996. He is an ethnic Tutsi[1][2] and a member of UPRONA. He was appointed Prime Minister by the Hutu president in an effort to stop some Tutsis from fighting with his government. He resigned shortly after the 1996 military coup.

Nduwayo allegedly participated in the assassination of the first democratically elected Hutu president, Melchior Ndadaye. On October 19, 2020, more than a year after the opening of the case and two days before the anniversary of the assassination, Nduwayo was acquitted or proven not guilty.[3]
