In his speech delivered after his participation in the activities related to the sowing of hybrid maize, Mr. Gashatsi praised the efforts of the people teamed up in the Turikumwe twese birashoboka Mubarazi cooperative to jointly produce rice, maize and soybeans in the Mubarazi-Kaniga swamps.

He asked the people of the Mbuye and Rutegama communes to respond to the appeal made by the top leader of Burundi, that is, to go about the various field activities while taking into account the pooling of land to grow the same crop and harvest at the same time, in order to increase production and to have food and money, he added.

Indeed, Mr. Gashatsi proceeded to the sowing of hybrid maize before visiting the rice harvest storage shed belonging to the Turikumwe twese birashoboka cooperative located in Taba village of Gasura zone in Mbuye commune.

The leader of that cooperative, Mr. Vincent Nkurunziza, said that since the inception of their cooperative under the aegis of ANACOOP, the harvest of rice and maize has almost doubled. This thanks to the initiative of President Evariste Ndayishimiye who went there more than once to encourage the people to do everything possible for the harvest of the Mubarazi-Kaniga swamps not to fall victim to negligence.

It is worth noting that during those activities carried out during parliamentary recess, the second deputy speaker of the National Assembly was accompanied by the chief of staff in the office of the Governor, Mr. Christophe Nemeyimana, the communal administrators of Mbuye and Rutegama as well as the officials of the provincial office of the environment, agriculture and animal husbandry in Muramvya province.
