In his speech for the occasion, Mr. Ndirakobuca told participants at the meeting that responsible government is based on law, the daily experience of the people and freedom. He explained that the heads of state and parastatal services are the main representatives of the working government in their positions.

After having outlined the main missions of the Burundian executive power, Mr. Ndirakobuca added that it is high time to regain lost time to increase performance. To do that, he called on them to endorse the concerns and grievances of their leaders and to roll up their sleeves, especially by cutting short with laziness, embezzlement of public funds, pride, fraud, corruption and violation of the law.

The Prime Minister of Burundi also advised the heads of state and parastatal services of Kayanza, each in his own sphere, to protect the population without any discrimination and without inclination, to prosecute and try criminals in accordance with the law, to manage the matter public as a good father and to apply the law, as well as being concerned about the daily life of the people.

He also invited them to change mentalities, especially by avoiding considering the positions they occupy as a source of work and the overlap between decentralized services.

During the exchanges, one of the participants in the meeting raised the question relating to the overlap between the chiefs of the hills and the members of the hill councils of notables recently set up. As advice, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Burundi invited the communal administrators to bring together the local administrators to get them to no longer interfere in the affairs of the hill councils of notables.

Shortly before, the Governor of Kayanza, Colonel Rémy Cishahayo had, in his welcoming speech, pointed out that the province is peaceful and the proof being that bikers and taxi-bicycle drivers work 24 hours a day. However, he deplored the upsurge in cases of suicide and fraud as well as the insufficiency of vaccines against Rift Valley fever.
