KAYANZA February 17th (ABP) – The governor of Kayanza province (northern Burundi), Colonel Rémy Cishahayo recommends to communal administrators to triple the fine which was 100,000 BIF to livestock brokers so that they break definitively with that practice. He also asks the population of Kayanza to denounce them.

That is when the cattle brokers are talking about them in the markets of Bumba and Gatwaro respectively in Butaganzwa and Kayanza communes. That campaign does not spare touts.

As for the touts who are singled out in the urban center of Kayanza, the same provincial authority asks the urban administration of Kayanza to collaborate with the forces of order to dismantle the groups of touts.
