Dec 10, 2023

CIBITOKE December 10th (ABP) – The 17th edition of the torch of peace was welcomed on Tuesday, December 5, 2023, in Cibitoke province, coming from Kayanza province.

The handover took place, at the border of the Muruta commune of Kayanza province and Bukinanyana of Cibitoke, between the governor of Cibitoke and his counterpart of Kayanza province, under the supervision of the Prime Minister of the Republic, Mr. Gervais Ndirakobuca, native of Cibitoke province and the President of the National Assembly, Mr. Daniel Gélase Ndabirabe, native of Kayanza province.

In its journey to illuminate development activities, the torch of peace carried two messages, that of encouragement for the love of work and the provision of aid from the presidency of 50 bags of cement for each infrastructure under construction.

The Prime Minister thanked the Intwararumuri association for its visit to the province and the support provided for the works in progress, which he gave as feedback for the efforts and good actions of the population, yesterday and today. He called on the population of his province and particularly those of Bihembe village which formed the lower chain of the health center, to align with the national vision of an emerging Burundi in 2040, through small projects, such as rabbit farming.

He took issue with the phenomenon of accusations of witchcraft reported in recent years on Bihembe village and other neighboring areas.

As for the Intwararumuri association, its president Épisode Baranyikwa called on participants to change their behavior, to now plan their activities, which facilitates evaluation at the end of each year.

Note that for that first day, the torch illuminated development works in three out of six communes, including Bukinanyana, Mabayi and Mugina.
