KAYANZA October 11th (ABP) – Burundi Ombudsman Edouard Nduwimana handed over the aid of food and iron sheets on Saturday to 28 households of the Batwa community in Magamba village, Kayanza commune and province (northern Burundi). He was in the company of the director of the sub-Saharan region of the Islamic World League, Sheick Walid El Saadi, who granted that aid and the governor of Kayanza province, Rémy Cishahayo, a check on the site by ABP revealed.
That aid consisted of food mainly rice, beans, maize flour, sugar, cooking salt and 3,000 iron sheets intended to cover the houses of people affected by the pouring rains mixed with the strong wind that hit various localities of Kayanza province last February, but also other people deemed vulnerable. In total, 6,000 iron sheets will be distributed throughout the country, and 300 people will benefit from the food assistance in Kayanza province.
In his speech, the Burundian ombudsman, Mr. Édouard Nduwimana, indicated that this aid granted by the World Islamic League (LIM) testifies to the unity and collaboration between the different religious denominations. He took the opportunity to thank Dr Mohammad Al Karim Issa, secretary general of the LIM who, after his visit to Burundi and Kayanza province, has just kept his word.
Mr. Nduwimana called on the people of Burundi in general and those of Kayanza in particular to consolidate this value which, in the past, characterized the Burundians, here you understand solidarity and to roll up their sleeves to work. The Burundian ombudsman also urged the people to tighten security and peace because, he said, the enemies of peace still exist everywhere in the country, as evidenced by acts of terrorism reported all over the world. He thus called for a combination of efforts and synergy to overcome this terrorism also being spoken in Burundi.
The governor of Kayanza province, Colonel Rémy Cishahayo, welcomed that assistance and expressed his gratitude to the donor.
It is worthy to note that before the delivery of that aid, the Burundian ombudsman, together with the director of the sub-Saharan region of the World Islamic League and the governor of Kayanza, joined the people of Kayanza commune in the work consisting of cleaning the gutters of the RN6.
