KAYANZA July 29th (ABP) – The practice of fraud has taken on a worrying pace in Kayanza province (northern Burundi) in these days. On Tuesday alone, three bales of thrift stores, 8 bags of dry coffee and 12 kilograms of cassiterite were seized during a police search in Kayanza town early in the morning. Information provided by the police and confirmed by the provincial administration of Kayanza shows three fraudsters apprehended.
The information specifies that during the search, the police apprehended two men, Serges Nsengiyumva and Pierre Bigirimana, all from the Runyinya village in Kabarore commune in possession of 12 kilograms of cassiterite which were going to be sold in the Bujumbura City Council. The soldiers of the Manga hideout station apprehended the same day a certain Pascal known by the nickname of Mujinya who was part of a band of fraudsters who transported dry coffee to Rwanda. Those soldiers seized 8 bags of dry coffee that were destined for Rwanda but the teammates of the apprehended person were able to escape. Also in that commune of Kabarore, three bales of thrift stores that were going to be transported to Rwanda were seized.
On the basis of all those seized items, the governor of Kayanza, Colonel Rémy Cishahayo, calls on the people in general and fraudsters in particular to cut short with the fraud because it no longer has a place in that province. He warns all those who engage in fraud that the administration will never give them free rein and that once apprehended, their fraudulent objects will be confiscated and brought to justice to be punished in accordance with the law.
