RUKWA: RUKWA Regional Commissioner, Mr Makongoro Nyerere, has urged District Commissioners (DCs), councillors and land development officers to solve land disputes facing the citizens and not wait for top leaders to do the same.
Equally, he challenged local government leaders in the region to understand well and address challenges afflicting residents at their administrative areas.
He made the call recently during the swearing-in ceremony of a new DC, Mr Nyakia Ally Chirukie, who has been posted to Sumbawanga District. Initially Mr Chirukie was Ngorongoro District Administrative Secretary (DAS).
“Let me reminding you that the sixth phase administration is working hard round the clock to solve challenges afflicting people in various sectors including water, education and health but it cannot meet its targets if it does not receive enough information, including building good relationship between the government and the people.
“It is up to you to make sure that you understand what people in your areas need and also inform them how their government is planning to solve their challenges,” he explained.
He commended leaders in all councils in the region for working hard to serve the people as well as for close up supervision of domestic revenue collections, which is spent on projects’ implementation in their areas.
Acting Rukwa Regional Administrative Secretary (RAS), Mr Donald Soko reminded the new district leaders to stick to the working principles and to respect the rule of law in their day-to-day activities, adding that he is ready to give them her support.
For her part, Member of CCM National Executive from Rukwa Region Mr Sultan Salum congratulated the DC, urging him to effectively implement the party’s election manifesto by ensuring projects initiated in their areas are well executed so that they help to bring positive changes in the lives of people as required.
