Sylvestre Ntibantunganya (born 8 May 1956) is a Burundi politician. He was Speaker of the National Assembly of Burundi from December 1993 to 1 October 1994, and President of Burundi from 6 April 1994 to 25 July 1996 (interim to October 1994).
He came into office when the previous president, Cyprien Ntaryamira, was killed in a plane crash (an assassination in which the Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana was also killed). Ntibantunganya left office when he was deposed by Pierre Buyoya in a military coup in 1996.
