Each household must have a household notebook to safeguard peace and security


Jan 24, 2024

MAKAMBA January 24th (ABP) – The governor of Makamba province (southern Burundi), Mrs. Tantine Ncutinamagara, in the company of the provincial joint security committee, held Tuesday, January 23, at Buheka village in the Kazirabageni zone of the commune Nyanza-Lac, a security meeting.

The objective was to discuss the security situation in that area of Kazirabageni where so-called healers called “abatutumuzi” appeared who are sowing discord between the people in that locality, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.

At the end of the meeting, Mrs. Ncutinamagara recommended that each household have, within a week, a household notebook for the protection of peace and security, and especially for the control of the movement of people who could be the source of those unauthorized acts. According to Mrs. Ncutinamagara, what is found in the notebook of a given household must be identical to what is found in the document of the head of ten houses (Nyumbakumi).

Grassroots leaders are called upon to enforce the law and respect the population.

Those healing practices are prohibited in Burundi, insisted the governor of Makamba, specifying that even those who use traditional medicine must have permission from the ministry in charge of public health and a writing from the governor allowing them to carry out those activities.

The same personality invited administrators to strengthen the fight against fraud and rumors that arise in the pre-electoral and electoral period. She recalled that in order to reduce land conflicts, hill chiefs are strictly prohibited from signing contracts for the purchase and sale of properties before the heads of ten houses sign.
