BUJUMBURA June 23rd (ABP) – The administrator of Isare district, Mr. Gilbert Niyonkuru, promises zero tolerance to the beneficiaries of the Landscape Rehabilitation and Resilience Project in Burundi (PRRPB) who will not comply with the clauses of the contract, in particular the stockbreeders who will neglect the cows that will have been distributed to them by the project, this was disclosed during the restitution of the data from the feasibility study of the said project.
Indeed, he made it clear that sometimes cows are given to people who are unable to raise them properly, who do not have enough fodder and who cannot get them treated. He asked those in charge of the project to make sure that the animals are distributed to those who are well prepared and who can live up to the signed contract.
Administrator Niyonkuru also warned pastoralists who will break the contract and pledged zero tolerance.
According to that district person in authority, the administrator is entitled to withdrawing those cows that are poorly maintained and distribute them to others who are capable of raising them well.
He recalled that in the past, similar cases were observed, some cows died or sold before all the members of the solidarity chain had benefited from a cow, and the chain was broken, something unacceptable at this time with the PRRPB, he insisted. He appealed to the beneficiaries of that project to prepare accordingly so that it leaves a visible impact on the field.
