About the Burundian rebels based in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the President of the Republic has indicated that they are talking to the UN so that these rebels are repatriated to the country to join the compatriots in the development of the country, also specifying that justice will prosecute those who have committed crimes.

With regard to good governance, he pointed out that they are fighting those who compromise the economy of the country so that the goods of the country are shared by all Burundians. He also stressed that the major challenge haunting Burundi is the galloping demography, adding that the country plans to take measures to face this challenge.

In the health sector, he said that Burundi is at a satisfactory stage in the construction of communal hospitals because 70 hospitals out of 119 planned have been built.

In terms of infrastructure, he pointed out that the country plans to build the international airport of Bugendana, in Gitega province to support that of Bujumbura.

In the economic sector, he said that cooperatives of gold miners who produce less than one kilogram of gold in a month will be removed from the list, and asked them to break with the clandestine marketing of that public treasure.

Among the questions and suggestions of the people, the one related to the difficulty of obtaining passports was in the foreground. The minister in charge of the interior who answered that question indicated that this break is due to the shortage of stocks of the material used for the manufacture of passports, demand greater than supply.
