Feb 21, 2024

CANKUZO, February 21st (ABP) – The Burundian ombudsman, Mrs. Aimee Laurentine Kanyana, joined forces on Saturday February 17 with the people of Buyongwe II village, in Kigamba commune of Cankuzo province (eastern Burundi) in the community development work consisting of filling potholes on the Kigamba-Gahumo road.

In his welcoming remarks, the governor of Cankuzo province, Mr. Boniface Banyiyezako, indicated that peace and security are in good shape. However, he deplored the problem linked to the lack of health centers. For example, Mr. Banyiyezako pointed out that the Health Center (CDS) is in Munzenze village of Mishiha commune, 7 km from Buyongwe II village. He also pointed out the lack of drinking water and the telephone network problem.

Given that the collection and purchase campaign for the maize harvest will begin soon, Governor Banyiyezako called on the people not to waste the money from the harvest, but rather to use it to implement self-development projects.

The Burundian ombudsman promised to submit all concerns raised to the President’s Office for adequate solutions. She called on the natives of the Cankuzo province to tackle public utility projects in their native zones. Mrs. Kanyana did not fail to call on the people to carry out self-development work and to get involved in keeping peace and tightening security.
