Mar 27, 2024

BUJUMBURA March 26th (ABP) – The “Abiwacu mu Kirundo (AKIR)” fraternity of nationals of Kirundo province (north-eastern Burundi) met on Sunday, March 24, in Bujumbura, in the ceremonies of a fraternal day coupled with the celebration of the 5th anniversary of the existence of the AKIR fraternity. The representative of that “AKIR” fraternity, Mr. Patrick Manzi, indicated that for its 5th consecutive year, the holding of that fraternal day is an opportunity to take stock of the achievements made on one of the 3 objectives pursued, namely the brotherhood of its members, which materializes in the support of each other during happy or unhappy moments.

AKIR’s results are satisfactory, according to Mr. Manzi, who informed that in the future, the fraternity intends to invite its members to invest in development activities which bring them a surplus in their respective families.

The representative of the “AKIR” Fraternity insisted on the fact that the fraternity, which is different from an association, is committed to supporting the government to achieve its vision of being an emerging country in 2040 and developed in 2060.

To do that, he called on the members of the fraternity to support that vision by making their contribution to the development of the country. Development concerns every Burundian, he stressed, insisting that it is not a matter of leaders alone.

During those ceremonies, new members were officially welcomed into that fraternity. Unity, fraternity and solidarity are the 3 values conveyed by the AKIR fraternity. During the 5 years, that fraternity supported the vulnerable of Bugarama and the children of an orphanage in Kirundo province. She also organized activities to promote tourism in Kirundo province, said Mr. Manzi. That day saw the participation of the Minister of National Defense and Veterans Affairs, Mr. Alain Tribert Mutabazi, also a national of Kirundo province.
