GITEGA June 20th (ABP) – The Head of State of Burundi, Mr. Evariste Ndayishimiye, continued the prayer of Thanksgiving to God on Friday morning for the benefits acquired after a year of his inauguration as President of the country, by a teaching based on the biblical passage of Nehemiah 5: 1-13 during which he testified the divine Goodness which guided his works.
That day, which coincided with the 1st anniversary of the President of the Republic of Burundi of his inauguration at the supreme magistracy of the country on June 18, 2020, was an opportunity to express his satisfaction at the results of his achievements.
The Head of State was thus delighted with the positive results of the achievements marked in particular by the involvement of Burundians in development works for every mouth to have what to eat and every pocket money. He also indicated that many of the government’s priorities are being implemented. He mentioned in particular 37 district hospitals under construction which will be inaugurated next August.
He reiterated his commitment to give primacy to God in all his works and to lead by ensuring the well-being of all Burundians without distinction.
President Ndayishimiye took the opportunity to call on leaders at all levels to be leaders who prioritize patriotic values and therefore reassure the entire population regardless of their ethnic, ideological or other affiliations. He then invited the leaders of the various spheres of action to ensure the proper management of public assets in order to gain the confidence of their people. He called on the people to break with the wait-and-see attitude and to denounce all forms of injustice, in this case, economic embezzlement and other evils which are slowing down the country’s development.
The Head of State also encouraged Burundians to tell the truth about the country’s tragic past and to resolutely commit to forgiveness and reconciliation to transcend the misfortunes that have marked the country. He called on all Burundians to unite their efforts to build a better future for Burundi.
In his teaching based on the word of God from “Colossians 3:13”, the bishop of the Free Methodist Church, Mgr. Déogratias Nshimiyimana, focused his teaching on the values of understanding, forgiveness and reconciliation that must begin in households and families which are the nucleus of society.
