GITEGA November 8th (ABP) – Burundi Head of State Evariste Ndayishimiye, closed on Friday, November 5, 2021, the activities of the government retreat organized since November 3, 2021, in Gitega, the political capital of the country.
At the end of the retreat, the government spokesperson, Mr. Prosper Ntahorwamiye told the press that the activities of the retreat in question took place in two phases.
The first phase took place on the 3rd and 4th of November when the retreat concerned members of the government. The second phase took place on the 5th of November, and also saw the participation of senior ministerial officials.
During the first phase, the objective was to do a critical analysis on the state of implementation of the objectives of “responsible” and “hard-working” government, initiated by President Ndayishimiye. He reminded members of the government of the principle of uniqueness, complementarity and integrity of government, according to that spokesperson, before explaining that there was no question of doing a critical analysis of the ministry by ministry, but a critical analysis was rather carried out sector by sector.
The President of the Republic also reminded them of the three missions of the government, said Mr. Ntahorwamiye, citing in particular the mission to protect citizens, the mission to prosecute and judge; finally, the mission of ensuring the well-being of citizens by watching over their development.
Mr. Ntahorwamiye also said that they have made the tour of the challenges, lessons, perspectives and recommendations to be adopted in order to be able to achieve the objective of “responsible” and “hard-working” government which aims to ensure that each mouth have to eat and that every pocket has money.
The second phase of the retreat was a moralization session so that members of the government and senior ministerial officials had a common sense on the management of public affairs, according to the government spokesperson.
