CANKUZO July 21st (ABP) – The Speaker of the National Assembly (NA), Mr Daniel Gélase Ndabirabe, brought together, on Monday July 19, 2021, the heads of provincial and communal services, the MPs and Senators native to the constituency of Cankuzo (east of the country) and the staff of the communal council offices, at the headquarters of Cankuzo province in order to discuss development, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.

The governor of Cankuzo province, Mr Boniface Banyiyezako, indicated that security is total in the province even if exceptions such as family and land conflicts arise. He added that the staffs in education, justice and health are insufficient.

Concerning the environment, the governor of Cankuzo said that around 2 million trees have already been planted within the framework of the national project “Ewe Burundi urambaye”. Mr. Banyiyezako asked the people for support for the ongoing construction of the stadium in Cankuzo and the hospital in Mishiha. He further requested that the RN13 road be completed up to the border with Tanzania.

In his address, the speaker of the NA called on the participants to invest in the sectors of agriculture and livestock, because, according to him, those sectors are now the pillar of the development of the country.

For the speaker of the National Assembly, those sectors will allow the public debt to reach zero by the year 2027. To do so, according to Mr. Ndabirabe, we must change mentality. Mr. Ndabirabe requested that State lands and those of individuals, all not valued, be ceded to individuals or cooperatives to exploit them. In addition, he asked the province to reserve a field in each commune for the growing of fodder for the benefit of livestock.

Finally, the speaker of the NA reminded, among others, the leaders present, that a good leader must be a believer, avoid selfishness and ask for forgiveness and forgive others.
