Candidates for the national police come to be enlisted slowly, as noticed by observers. The municipal administrators are urged to issue all required documents free of charge to allow young boys and girls to embrace the police career, this was said by the governor of the province of Kayanza (northern Burundi) after finding that candidates come to be registered slowly.
Deficiency found in the enlistment process.
As reported by the Burundi Press Agency, the operation of enlisting candidates eager to embrace the police career, especially in the category of agents, is deficient.
As an illustration, at the end of a week of registration, Kayanza commune had 12 candidates until 10 o’clock on Thursday, the commune of Butaganzwa had less than ten candidates according to the communal administrator and the commune Gatara has only three candidate agents, as reported by the administrator of this municipality. The commune Gahombo does not register any candidate, according to Mrs. Jacqueline Ruragoka, administrator of this commune.
According to some administrative officials contacted by the ABP, awareness-raising efforts have been made but unfortunately, they have been in vain. They say, for this purpose, to ignore the reasons for this low affluence to registration.
Some documents caused a hindrance to this process.
According to police officials in Kayanza, some documents such as the extract of judicial criminal record and certificate of good conduct, life, and morals that seemed difficult to find for candidates have been removed from the list of documents required for registration. Police officials ask administrative managers to raise awareness among young people to register.
Contacted on the same subject, the governor of Kayanza, Mr. Anicet Ndayizeye indicated that all documents required for registration must be issued free of charge in order to facilitate the registration of the candidates.
Long travels among hindrance of the process of registration.
In Cibitoke (North-West), the first days of registration of police candidates of all mixed categories, but since this Thursday, October 11, there is a high number of young people coming to register. Those contacted by the ABP justify that it is not easy for some to find the means of travel allowing them to go to the provinces
from their local communities.
For police officers, the number already registered is satisfactory except that there is little record of Tutsi ethnic candidates and fewer female candidates than in years earlier.
Remember that the deadline for registration is 14 October.
