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).
Ntibantunganya was born in Gishubi, Gitega, and is an ethnic Hutu. He served as foreign minister briefly during 1993.
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.
Ntibantunganya is a Senator for life as a former head of state.
