KAYANZA December 15th (ABP) – Traders in Kayanza province (North) who will be caught increasing the prices of industrial products such as cement produced by “Burundi Cement Company (BUCECO)”, sugar from the Moso Sugar Company (SOSUMO) and Brarudi products will now be fined and their products will be seized. This is a recommendation made on Monday afternoon at the end of a meeting chaired by the governor of Kayanza for members of the provincial security unit, the chief of staff in the office of the governor of Kayanza told a check by ABP during an interview he gave to him on Tuesday the 14th.
According to the chief of staff in the office of the governor of Kayanza, Mr. Vianney Ndikumana, among the items on the agenda were securing the end-of-year celebrations and monitoring the prices of industrial products such as cement produced by BUCECO, drinks from Brarudi and sugar from SOSUMO.
Regarding security, Mr. Ndikumana indicated that the provincial security unit recommended to revitalize the joint security committees so that the latter collaborate closely with the law enforcement authorities and the police during the end-of-year celebrations. Since security is everyone’s prerogative, the chief of staff in the office of the governor of Kayanza urged the people of Kayanza to remain vigilant by ensuring their security so that they can celebrate the end-of-year ceremonies in peace and security.
Regarding the prices of the aforementioned industrial products, Mr. Ndikumana stressed that the provincial security unit decided that alongside the fines that will be imposed on speculative traders, there will also be the seizure of the products so that the trader cannot not plunge back into that matter of rising prices. He recommended consumers while pointing the finger at anyone who ignores this measure taken, while traders are called on to cut short with any attempt at speculation, especially since the prices set by the State have not yet changed.
