MUYINGA October 26th (ABP) – The Vice-President of the Republic of Burundi, Mr. Prosper Banzombaza, on Saturday congratulated the people of Muyinga province (north-eastern Burundi) who are combining their efforts for the development of that entity. He said it on Saturday on the sidelines of community work at the construction site of the Muyinga commune office which will have two levels.
The communal administrator, Mr. Amedée Misago, indicated that this project was set up on the commune’s own funds, after the way of collecting municipal taxes and levies, throughout the country, had become rigorous. Today, he said, “Muyinga commune collects monthly 60 million BIF and even more.
The provincial governor, in turn, indicated that alongside the construction of the communal office, the province is building a provincial office on three levels, with the possibility of adding others. The funds were donated by the natives and friends of the province, he informed the Vice-President of the Republic.
Mr. Bazombaza, who said he was touched by this supervision of the population, encouraged the various administrative machinery to always move forward. He called on the people to redouble their efforts in contributing to the development of their province.
“Even if a lot of people cite household poverty, a contribution of BIF 2000 per family is not a big burden,” he said.
The UPRONA party of which he is a member has pledged a contribution of 50 bags of cement for the construction of this provincial office.
Coming back to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the Vice-President of the Republic urged the assistance to scrupulously observe the barrier measures as recommended by the Ministry of Public Health and the Fight against AIDS. He was delighted to hear that the cases of Covid-19 had significantly decreased in recent days in Muyinga.
