BUJUMBURA August 26th (ABP) – The governor of Bujumbura province (western Burundi), Mr. Désiré Nsengiyumva, was on Tuesday August 24, 2021 in Nyabiraba commune where he inaugurated the community works built thanks to the efforts of the population, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.
That activity, which is part of the campaign to inaugurate the works erected in the communes of that province, began with the inauguration of the Bubaji-Kinyami-Nyabiraba drinking water supply.
Governor Nsengiyumva first cut the symbolic ribbon marking the inauguration of the Mayemba-Gasarara trail, the Gasarara bridge and the Gasara health center.
That will make it possible to open up the center of Mbare-Gasarara because the population had enormous difficulties in obtaining treatment, testified the inhabitants of that locality.
The administrator of Nyabiraba commune, Mr. Ferdinand Simbananiye, said he was satisfied with the outcome of his dreams translated into reality. He thanked his people who gave themselves body and soul to support these projects. He expressed the wish that the Gasarara health center be extended and provided with an accommodation block, a maternity ward, a home for nursing staff and a mortuary.
The owner of that health center, Mr. Mélance Misigaro, asked that he be given other units of nursing staff and nursing assistants, since he is so far the only one to work in this care structure.
Governor Nsengiyumva congratulated the population of Nyabiraba for these good works and urged them to always participate in the development projects of the commune. He called on the same population to seek treatment at the Gasarara health center and not to confide in traditional healers.
In this period when the Covid-19 pandemic is taking human lives, the governor of Bujumbura province called on the people of Mbare-Gasarara to observe barrier measures by washing their hands each time with soap, clean water and wear masks.
All households and all public places must have hand washing facilities, failing which, a fine of 5,000 BIF will be imposed on anyone who ignores that recommendation. It will be the same for those who will greet each other by shaking hands.
