BUBANZA March 14th (ABP) – The governor of Bubanza province (northwestern Burundi), Mr. Nobus Thérence Butoyi, calls on residents of Musigati commune to guarantee security and protect the Kibira natural forest; this was revealed during a security meeting he held in Musigati on Tuesday March 12, 2019.
According to the governor of Bubanza province, no income-generating activity is feasible without security, and even development remains impossible. He asks those residents to remain vigilant, to report in real time when they see someone or something that could be a source of insecurity in their commune, and to avoid their own justice. Governor Butoyi advises them to turn a deaf ear to those who would incite them to disrupt their security, especially in this period close to the 2020 elections. He warns those who persist in the brewing, trading and consumption of prohibited beverages, stating that they incur exemplary sanctions. That provincial person in authority urges them to bodily hygiene and that of their homes to prevent diseases that make them unproductive.
Regarding the protection of the natural forest of Kibira, Governor Butoyi asks the people of Musigati to avoid deforestation, illegal mining, agriculture and hunting because, he explains, this forest is not only beneficial for them, but also for the whole country. Deforestation is likely to cause desertification, he adds.
That security meeting was preceded by community development works which consisted of the construction of the Mukungu Basic School in the same commune.
