Jun 7, 2023

BUJUMBURA June 7th (ABP) – The administrator of Mubimbi commune, Dismas Harimenshi, told Burundi News Agency (ABP) last week that the measures to ban people from selling bean pods, to slaughter animals without knowing their origin, have helped in the fight against the theft of harvest in the fields and small livestock such as goats and pigs in households.

Indeed, he said, during the trips he made to the villages of that commune to collect the concerns of the people and their ideas for developing the commune, he was told of cases of harvest theft of beans, sweet potatoes in the fields, goats and pigs in the households.

Administrative measures have been taken to deal with those thefts, in particular prohibiting farmers from selling bean pods at the market, prohibiting butchers from slaughtering an animal whose breeder is unknown, and this has borne fruit. The thefts were reduced, there was also an economy of the harvest, he underlined before closing his remarks.
