Poor service delivery has become inseparable from cadres of the ruling party in neighbouring Burundi according to leaks from the recent party meeting.
The CNDD-FDD party on September 30, held a meeting of all activists who exercise high positions in state institutions, to ask them to offer quality services and work for the well-being of citizens.
President Evariste Ndayishimiye who rose to power after winning a controversial election in May 2020 has been struggling to put together a functional government that serves peoples interests.
His government is struggling to wear a new coat to escape his predecessors but it isn’t a walkover. Ndayishimiye will serve a seven-year term in office and can renew the term once.
President Ndayishimiye warned the authorities of the country who do not perform effectively the tasks entrusted to them and who mismanage public goods.
Just like under the previous governments, the country has recently suffered grenade attacks leaving some dead and scores wounded. This puzzles President Ndayishimiye and affects his popularity.
Towards the end of September, explosions killed at least five people and injured 50 in Burundi’s commercial city Bujumbura.
The Interior Ministry said on Twitter that “unidentified terrorists” were responsible.
Two grenade explosions hit a bus parking lot in the city centre, according to seven eyewitnesses, while a third blast hit Jabe market in the Bwiza neighbourhood, according to another witness.
With all these attacks, President Ndayishimiye said on Thursday that the Lord revealed to him the enemies of the country.
Ndayishimiye lamented that there are still Burundians who enjoy shedding the blood of their brothers and who are not happy with a peaceful Burundi. He said that troublemakers have no place in Burundi or elsewhere in the world.
