BUBANZA March 17th (ABP) – The governor of Bubanza province, Cléophas Nizigiyimana, met, on Tuesday March 14, with the inhabitants of the Muyebe and Ruce zones, respectively in Musigati and Rugazi communes (north-west of Burundi), on their concerns and possible solutions, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.
Concerns were raised. These include, among other things, the abandonment of families by men who migrate to Gihanga and Mpanda communes to found other homes there and the difficult conditions in which village mediators work. The latter revealed that they have no working materials and that, sometimes, some of the parties in conflict refuse the solution offered by mediation.
Other concerns relate to land disputes with commissionaires who improvise themselves between plaintiffs and judicial authorities, school drop-outs at a worrying pace, volunteers who weigh on parents, allegations of witchcraft, the lack of drinking water, endangered coffee, threatened environment, and others.
Faced with all those grievances, the Governor of Bubanza recommended respect for the law and the fight against any obstacle to the welfare of the people by seeking remedies for the various problems.
