RUMONGE January 24th (ABP) – The lack of rooms in different educational establishments, drinking water and electricity are among the challenges that haunt different villages in the Kizuka zone. That was mentioned on Monday January 22 by the population of that area during a descent organized by the governor of Rumonge province, Mr. Léonard Niyonsaba, to collect the grievances of the population.

The lack of shelter for victims of the rising waters of Lake Tanganyika was also mentioned, we learned on site.

According to Governor Niyonsaba, the administration is aware of the situation of victims of unassisted Lake Tanganyika waters. He said that natural disasters occur unforeseen, that is why the municipality provides assistance without a budget planned to intervene in that situation, hence the intervention is slow, he said.

For the case of the inhabitants of the different hills who pleaded for the availability of drinking water and electricity, the governor of Rumonge specified that all the projects to be executed must be mentioned in the program budget.

He therefore invited local elected officials to make a list of priority projects in order to transmit it to the municipal administration so that they can be voted on by the communal council.
