The mechanics who practice their craft in the streets of the Buyenzi area have not well conceived the decision made by his Excellency the Mayor of the city of Bujumbura giving them only 1 month to evacuate all the damaged cars on the premises.
They say that the time they have been given is not enough and that if the state does not want them to work in these streets they should find another place for them before making the decision to chase them away. Since these streets had since become long before their working office.
It was this Thursday, being in their weekly tasks that they were informed that the mayor of the city had decided in a meeting dealing with the security of the country that these mechanics had to move the cars parked in the streets for a long time and that they had to now practice their craft inside their plots.
The concerned have made known that this decision comes to shake their lives since it is by these small works that they managed to provide for the needs of their families furthermore even if they executed they would not know where to put these so-called cars and also that their own parcels are too narrow to work in them.
They implore the mayor of the city to put himself in their shoes in order to understand the impact of this decision he has taken or at least to find them another suitable place of work.
