May 10, 2024

MAKAMBA, May 8th (ABP) – The governor of Makamba (southern Burundi), Mrs. Tantine Ncutinamagara, closed Monday, May 6, in the Nyanza-lac zone and commune, the field trips to collect the grievances of the population to find out what the latter thinks of the implementation of the vision of Burundi emerging in 2040 and developed in 2060.

The people of the Nyanza-Lac zone indicated that the fight against hunger must be a priority to achieve this vision. The services of the Ministry in charge of Agriculture and Livestock must work hard to ensure that all marshes are developed, while breeders must respect the law in relation to permanent stabling. Here, the governor recalled that the breeder of the herd intercepted grazing here and there must pay a fine and return the damaged plants.

One of the members of the pig breeders’ network, Mr. Charles Karenzo, asked the population to take up pig breeding because, he said, the government is committed to its improvement. Even the market for selling pig meat is already available, he said, adding that farrowing centers are possible to have good quality pigs.

At these times when the country is approaching electoral deadlines, Governor Ncutinamagara urged the population of Nyanza-lac to be wary of rumors and to focus on development activities.

In the justice sector, the governor of Makamba calls on justice professionals to draw up a list of pending trials in the courts so that they can be closed.

In her welcome address, the administrator of the Nyanza-lac commune, Mrs. Marie Goreth Irankunda, indicated that her commune is facing insufficient drinking water and that it is time for Regideso to make an electrical extension in different neighborhoods of the Nyanza-lac area.

Ms. Ncutinamagara finally asked the population to respect the road rights-of-way, dig cesspools and ensure sanitation on both sides of the roads and tracks.

She ended her descent at Musatwe where an ELAGA (Livestock agriculture aquaculture) industry for transforming patchouli into perfume and fish farming is installed.
