NGOZI March 6th (ABP) – The Vice President of the Republic of Burundi, Prosper Bazombanza, brought together in Ngozi, the heads of public and private services, economic operators, community leaders and administrative officials at all levels.

In his welcoming address, the governor of Ngozi province, Emmanuel Ntaconsanze, made a presentation on some challenges that the province still faces. These are in particular school dropouts, population growth, polygamy, the delay in the accomplishment of trial verdicts delivered by the Courts and Tribunals, and the exaggerated increase in the price of basic necessities.

Mr. Ntaconsanze also returned to the threat posed by the ravines to the paving activities of the urban roads of Ngozi and the speculation observed on various products.

In his speech for the occasion, the Vice President of the Republic said that he went to the field to discuss with the people of Ngozi on the main concerns of the province in particular and those of the country in general. He insisted on the fight against corruption, fraud and other economic embezzlements.

Regarding the increase in production and the fight against poverty, the Vice President of the Republic asked the various leaders to be role models where they live or work.

Thus, each manager should maintain at least one model field so that the surrounding people can draw inspiration from it. He asked the administrative officials to sensitize their subordinates so that they devote themselves very actively to the development activities for the households.

Regarding the fight against straw houses, Mr. Bazombanza urged civil status officials to no longer celebrate the marriages of couples who enter such houses. Note that the year 2023 is dedicated to the eradication of straw houses.

Finally, the Vice President of the Republic demanded compliance with construction standards in cities, the maintenance of roads and rural tracks by the grassroots administration and the fight against the depravity of mores.

For Mr. Bazombanza, bad behavior such as homosexuality, must be fought with the utmost energy because, he explained, it constitutes an abomination for the country.
