The basketball court under construction, a laudable initiative by the Head of State


Apr 13, 2023

GITEGA April 11th (ABP) – The Burundian Head of State, Mr. Evariste Ndayishimiye, deserves encouragement and support for his initiative to build a modern basketball court in the country’s political capital (center of the country). That is at least the words that the President of the Burundian Senate, Mr. Emmanuel Sinzohagera pronounced, at the end of the community development work he carried out, on Saturday April 8, 2023, alongside the population of the province of Gitega (center of the country).

To materialize his support for the efforts of the Burundi Senate President, Mr. Sinzohagera promised a contribution of 100 bags of cement on behalf of the institution in his charge, adding that his family will not be left out. He challenged the Burundians, each within their means, to lend a hand to this project of national scope.

That site is the pride of the country, he insisted, before promising his active involvement in raising awareness on the contribution to the success of this infrastructure.

In addition, the Senate President registered in false against citizens who make stain of oil of the shortage of food. That way is no way out, rather, he advised, these people should side with the citizens who are working to increase production. This is the best way to combat the shortage of food. For Mr. Sinzohagera, this shortage is due to overpopulation, hence he asked Burundians to embrace family planning. That method is overall the best for family well-being, he said, arguing that few children are easy to feed, educate, clothe or care for.

Previously, provincial governor, Mr. Venant Manirambona, had expressed words of thanks to the Senate President for his rapprochement with the population and, particularly, for the promise of substantial support for the continuity of the work of the said project.

Considering the current state of the works, the provincial governor reported that the finishing will require an amount of 600 million BIF. Thus, he asked the people to organize themselves accordingly in the contribution. Note that the work of this day consisted of the manufacture of concrete to build stairs.

In addition to the previous personalities mentioned, those works saw the participation of some parliamentarians elected in the constituency of Gitega, the communal administrator of Gitega, the national defense and public security forces and the executives of the country working in Gitega as well as  the people of the urban center of Gitega.
