BUJUMBURA February 20th (ABP) – On the way to Mutimbuzi commune, Bujumbura province (western Burundi), on February 14, 2023, the members of the communal council asked the governor of that province, Mr. Désiré Nsengiyumva where they are with the work of the commission responsible for identifying the foreigners who would be in the administration and the bodies of the ruling party in the Gatumba zone as requested by Prime Minister Gervais Ndirakobuca during his visit to Nyabiraba.
According to Governor Nsengiyumva, the ad-hoc commission is at work and is at the end of its mission, adding that a list will soon be published.
Asked whether it would not be better for this list to be submitted for analysis by that council, the governor replied in the negative way. For him, it is out of the question to give a report to someone who has not mandated you to do something.
As a reminder, on a visit to Bujumbura province, Prime Minister Gervais Ndirakobuca deplored and castigated the fact that there are foreigners, especially those from the DR Congo, who pretend to be Burundians. Those foreigners are in the administration and in the bodies of the ruling party. The prime minister demanded that a commission be set up to identify them and remove them from office.
Some members of the Mutimbuzi communal council also deplore the fact that, in the past, identity cards have been issued to foreigners and that the latter buy plots as they wish, citing the case of Kajaga which is said to be overflowing with DR Congo nationals who go so far as to name one of the hotels in that locality “Congo man Hotel”.
