KARUSI October 26th (ABP) – The awareness campaign on rabbit breeding concerns the entire population, starting with community leaders, indicated the governor’s chief of staff, Innocent Ntirampeba, during a meeting he held on Tuesday, October 24, 2023, for representatives of political parties, religious denominations, civil society and administration.
According to him, the committee for monitoring the progress of national policy of rabbit breeding in Karusi province is already in place and will soon begin its work, warned the governor’s chief of staff, who recalled that each household must also have at least five rabbits as well as public and private services who must have a hutch.
According to the director of the Provincial Office of the Environment, Agriculture and Livestock, Jean Séverin Sinzobatohana, giving orders is no longer the right approach of the administration, but rather, at present, it is more urgent to preach by examples, if they want more effectiveness.
According to him, the province of Karusi is privileged in the national rabbit breeding policy, because it already has model cases, notably the veterinary technician of the Bugenyuzi commune, Didace Nizigiyimana, expert in that field and the trader, Aimable Habiyakare, who already has a construction site being finished to accommodate 2000 rabbits, said the director of BPEAE.
Note that the “Batwas” who practice pottery will benefit, because it is recommended by the expert Nizigiyimana that rabbits give birth in pots to avoid cold snaps.
